You really can't go wrong with either one. However, Ko radios and servos are only made in Japan. Isn't that right Ko guys?

In all honesty, I think they're ALL made in Japan... It's just a matter of who has a better distribution network here in the U.S.

When radios get this good, it really doesnt matter which one you chose, you're going to get a top of the line system.

Right, the only thing I'd worry about is which ones feel most comfortable for you, & which might have the best parts support at your local shops(you never know when you might need an extra pair of crystals or a new antenna mast)......
