Chances are they will not make the same mistake twice. Also, I don't think they are in the U.S.

I really like the new Helios. I paid less the 3 but not much. There is a cost. I think it's around $260 to $270.

The realt cost is buying to servo's and ESC that really use the full radio potential

lol

Default update on the helios

Hey guys, I just hear from my distributor. They are running a special on the helios. I can sell them for $280 shipped anywhere in the US. This is for the 75mhz with receiver and crystal set. I have to place an order by Monday afternoon before the limited qty runs out. Email me at [email protected] if you want one.

It really depends what you want. There is no doubt that the Helios has more features, but it is IMO very ugly compared the simplicity of the Mars R. It also depends if you think you will make use of all of the Helios' features, if not then you may aswell go for the Mars R and save yourself some wedge.

I pretty much figured out the settings but, probably only use a handful regularly.

I was fortunate enough to check out a Helios and talk to Ko Propo. Besides the sticker-shock I felt like the radio was a little awkward plus a handful and probably a good prop for "Men in Black 3".......

I still like the Mars, its simplicity and the only glitching I had was when my digital servo went south.

Default Purchased Mars R

I ended up getting a Mars R from KMW here in RC Tech. Nice radio, gonna race with it for first time this weekend.

Also ended up picking up a VFS2000 and programmer for 90 bucks. Couldn't pass it up so will try that this weekend as well.
