Default Most comfortable TX

Which TX do you feel is most comfortable?

My Xr2 started playing up so I switched to a kyosho perfex and an xpress mini reciever I had in my pit bag. I bought it a while back for a 1/24th scale and only used it maybe 3 times(didn't really give it the time of day). It has got to be the most comfortable Tx's I've held. It looks amature, but works and feels great.

Airtronics M8 or KO Propo EX 11 Helios. Those IMO are the best and also the most comfortable radios.

I personally like, and use, the Futaba 3PK. But what is comfortable to one person may not be to another.

I also have and like the 3PK. I like the feel of the Tx when using the lowering adapter for the wheel that comes with it. It lets me feel like my hands are more in-sync with each other. If that makes any sense.

I like the JR XS3...it just feels right

I'm a fan of the JR XR2-3i series too. Same case design

The KO Mars has the best weight balance If you have thick hands the grip might feel a little small but can put some tape that's used on hockey sticks, baseball bats, etc... to bulk it up some and the trigger adjusts to fit different sized fingers.

the one that is the most comfortable to me was the one that was the most affordable at the time the mx3. I like it.

There is no "one" most comfortable TX.......this implies we all have the same hands.........

Very true.

However, you might like to check out the Multiplex - they have fewer cells, thus they are much ligther.

The best radio I've ever used is Futaba 3VC (it's a stick version of 3PJ). Although mine is now nearly 5 years old I've yet to see/hold one that matches the quality or feel.
