Talking 3pk Questions

I'm in the market for a new radio and have decided on the Fut. 3pk. What I need to know is, I know that PCM is a form of the FM signal, but is it a significally better signal to deal with. Also, don't the PCM models have a failsafe<--- what is this for? And the Magnum is the US version right?

yes magnum is the us version

PCM signals failsafe signals...

so when the receiver stops receiving any signals from the TX, it remembers what it is suppose to do (full break, steer right etc)

yup pcm i like a hopped up version of the fm. its better and has less glitch. it also has a failsafe. remember the 3pk is capable of using hrs recievers and this too has a built-in failsafe feature.

Hrs receiver combined with a Digital servo... you'll have one awesome set-up with super fast response time...

So I should not get the PCM Version, or just the regular FM Version? I already have an Airtronics 94758z digi servo, so I can't wait. I wanna play with the steering expo. I just put the syn. module on back order; will this work, don't I need a syn. receiver?
