They have pictures of the 3PK version on the Horizon site and it WILL be a little funny looking with the antenna out the top of the front of the transmitter...but that's ok..

i'll have one on order anyway

I'm sure they'll have it just come straight up from the module for that model instead of the 90 degree angle like the M8.

I beleive the response on the Spektrum module is faster than any of the HRS systems currently on the market.

There are separate modules for

Airtronics - M8 (not sure about older models)
KO - Helios & Mars
Futaba - 3PK (and I believe 3PJ and also Hitec)

Ok, thanks windsor
So each one would take a different module specific to that brand right?

Yes....Eachone has a different module dependent on the brand..

go to www.horizonhobby.com and do a search on Spektrum you will see pictures of the different styles of modules.

look at where the clips to hold it into the radio are located

My LHS got one this week, filled a special order of a fellow racer. I have not had a chance to check it out yet. Not sure if I want to replace all my rx's yet, too much $$$.

No one says youhave to replace them all...

replace one at a time until eventually you've fully switched over...
You can still swap it out for yourold module and use the radio as before...that's part of the beauty of the system....

At the begging of this post they answered this question. I think it doesn't use the super high speed response. But it works with the KO.
