Really

I thought it was the Futaba Magnum Jr.

I'm sure ergonomics, weight, options, feel, etc, make it a fine radio, but just like anything, not everyone will agree.

At every event you'll find M11, KO EX10, Futaba 3PK as the most popular. Each one has its advantages and reasons why people prefer them.

I'd like to see the all encompassing poll that made that claim. Or is that just a retard assumption that everyone in the world likes that oblong brick with a wheel attached? When they remove the marshmallow between the wheel and the steering pot I will reconsider my opinion on that pile.

I just had to send mine back to be repaired because the spring that snaps the wheel back to center went out. Well, they replaced it with a much heavier duty spring and it feels 10 times better now and snaps back with ferocity now. As far as being the most popular, he must have been exaggerating because OBVIOUSLY theres no data to back that claim up. I think he was just wanting opinions, not to be slammed.

I actually dont know anyone that has an M11. I mostly see 3pks, KO Helios, and a ton of the cheap Spektrum radios in this area.

That is pretty much the case in my area as well. Very few M11's in use here. Some diehards still with the M8, but not many M11's.

Yes I just want to hear some opinions...
I'm not saying it is 100% the most popular and the Best!
I personally Started hobby with 3Pk.
Using Helios with Spektrum+lipo nowadays but not feels as comfy as 3Pk...
I was thinking about to go back to my 3pk Than I've checked some race pics from some sites like rc50 etc and see Most of the top drivers using M11 found that interesting...
Wondering Why Is that ?
because of sponsorship deals or m11 is a good piece of equipment

The M-11 is so popular because it is the fastest radio you can buy ..
Racers feel more connected with it and it always delivers the best lap times compared to the other radio`s available...

In the N/w the M-11 is the most popular radio still...

Funny, I run a 3Pk and find the Helios to be more comfortable. I don't like the M11 at all as the weight is too top/front heavy.
