Are you meaning FASST comparing with DSM2 or only with previous DSM version of Spektrum, i am surely the previous version it's slower on response.

Yes I believe the FASST is still faster. 75Hz vs 50Hz of the Spektrum system. Plus you don't lose the native functions of the 3pk/4pk such as the built in failsafe.

true not a copy but it will be interesting when others try the new Radio. All I can say is there will be some surprised expressions after this radio comes out

Futaba Fast system slows down with the more people that use it at the track. Although most may not be able to feel it.

I have seen lots of posts that say spectrum has not got a built in fail safe. NOT TRUE, I have an early model DX3 and even it has fail safe. You just have to program your preference into it.

I like the GB-03 Hotshot! Vintage body on a 4wd chassis to bash around the house! Unfortunately I ordered last week a RC18B Factory Team in which an Exotek chassis will mounted shortly
