I still use my KO Propo Helios, best radio I have ever used, never, and I mean never has my car glitched, and I run brushless and brushed. I owned a track for the last 3 years and when the spektrums came out alot of racers switched, some liked them, some switched back as the systems were slightly slower responce. I had a racer that raced half the day with a spektrum and then went back to his Helios and was turning into the corners too soon and clipping boards till he got used to the speed of the FM system again. The newer stuff though is supposed to be as fast as FM. But I also have seen races delayed recently to binding issues with the new radio systems. Just seems to still have a few bugs in some systems.

You are forgetting that the winner Atsushi Hara used the new Futaba 4PK radio which is 2.4ghz only!

I am using the Futaba 3PM. It costs about $190 , is 2.4, and has many adjustments in it including endpoint adjustments, atl brake adjustment, direct steering adjustment, steering speed adjustment, etc. It is a great radio to get started out with if you are on a budget.
