Default Opinions on the JR XS3

I'm about to buy one of these, but before I do I'd like to get feedback from those of you that own one.

How do you like the ergonomics?

Had any interference problems?

Overall, how well do you like it?

Default Well I've just got one and....

although I haven't run it in the car yet I have had a play so to speak and already I'd say I don't like the balance so far compared to my old Airtronics with the batteries in the handle and I know there are more adjustments on it than I'll ever use.

The manuel is a nightmare if all you've used is old turn a knob to adjust models which I have unfortunately. But that said the manuel isn't that great U get the distinct impression that they assume you know what their abbreviations mean.

But then again it's selling point was the not needing any crystals part. lol

I think it is a good radio myself. Most of the functions are pretty easy to figure out without the manual. The balance isn't too bad but the throttle trigger does feel a little funny. My previous radios are the XR-3, Futaba cheapo, airtronics xl-2p. I haven't had any trouble with the receivers or transmitter. If you do get one, get the combo with the z590 servo, it is pretty nice for its relatively cheap price.
