Default Which radio???

Hello, I decided I want to get a digital radio. I roughly have a $100 to spend and I am looking at a Futaba 2PL and a Aitronics MX3. Which one of these is the best?!?!

I have a MX-3 and am very happy with it. Try holding them both and see which is more comfortable.

You need to speed the extra money and get the m-8 or the 3pk. I have a 3pk. Look at it this way you spend the money once and you will never have to do it again. When you buy cheap electronics. They always break. Do it right the first time.

I'll second that one. If you can't afford it now. Get something cheap and used. Then, save the money for the 3pk later.

3pk rocks though. I've had the M8, XS3, and now the 3pk. Very comfortable. The KO Helios looks pretty sweet and feels very comfortable as well.

Default Save up

this one old guy once told me at the track... dont bother buying the cheap stuff.. because you'll buy the better stuff later anyways. so you'll just spend twice.

so with that in mind. save your money and save up for one of the top of the line radios.

I have the Ko Propo Helios. VERY VERY Comfortable with extension with the wheel tilted.

there are other great radios out there... just save up..and hold them, see which one is more comfortable.

If you don't mind buying a used radio, go check out Trade/Sell Forum, or ebay. U could always find cheap price and nice stuffs there. Like the EXI selling for 145
