Default Futaba 3pk OR 3pm

Hey Guys

As above , what do y'all think I should get.
I run tc on road , no need for the xtra channel, but I do want expo on throttle and steering.

My Question is:

Which should I get and why??
There is a big price difference so why go with the 3pk??
What are the difference's between the two, obvious things aside.
how dos the expo differ between models??

Thanks for the help !! ( I hope )

Cheers
Geoff

I have both radios but I have the 3pm fs version. Both radios are good. Its just depends on you and your needs. I bought the 3pmfs first but it is limited to 10 models and has the same basic features of the 3pk. The 3pk you and add a chip for an additional models plus its module base. You and switch from the synthesis module to the 75 or 27 and now spektrum. That's the reason I when ahead also bought the 3pk. I actually use the 3pm as a backup for the 3pk. The 3 channel comes in handy if you race and use personal transponders. You'll have to consider what you can afford and what you use your radio for in the future.

Im sure you can read the lists of features on tower or the Futaba site and compare them yourself, but other than that, a big advantage of the 3pk is that it has is the adapter to drop down the wheel. You can't drop down the wheel on the 3pm, and most people prefer it dropped down.

Yeah I can read

What I was after was how the expo and other functions differ between the two radios, such as the setup of expo.Some radios are more tuneable than others and to know the difference I would need both radios in front of me.
I was hoping that someone with experience with both could explain any differences so I could make an informed choice.

Thanks for your replies
