what you looking for in a radio? Just hold one and take the one that feels right. Both great radios...but the helios right now is a big favorite over where i'm from.

Default HMMM

I do miss the big screen on the futaba. Very easy to make adjustments. Once I held the KO with the dropdown I made the switch.

The 3pk is a great radio, but the helios is probably the best on the market in my opinion. I'm sure the m11 will do great...but c'mon the helios is still probably way ahead of it. The nomadio sensor though is one tough radio as well. whenever something new comes out for the nomadio all you have to do is download it from the site, then you'll will continue to have the new features, that keep comng out.

Bottom line helios all the way, c'mon hara uses it, surkian just switched from the 3pk to the helios. And the world champ marc reinhard is now on the helios band wagon.

Now reasons to buy it.
1.ergonomics
2. samll reciever
3. very fast response
4. SO MANY FEATURES! I can't list all of it...too much!

Trust me helios is the way to go. They make everything that you ACTUALLY need. Why have a big LCD...you're not goign to look at it when you're racing, or in the pit.
