I have tested this radio and it is very similar to the XS3 Pro. This radio has all the same functions, the unique things on this radio are 1.) No module-has Spectrum built in. 2.) Very, an I mean VERY easy on batteries.

My LHS is supposed to get a shipment of these very soon. They haven't quoted a price yet, any theories?

Oh, and are these 2 or 3 channel?

Default I'm shopping for a radio...

and I think this is the only option. I'm not thrilled about the silver, but I hope it's comfortable as a Futaba. These days there is not much to pick from that under $250 and has easy setup features.

1fastdude, how was the trigger response? How's the trigger, cheapy? Braking? Some radios have too much of a gap between the two. I hope they will release a custom wheel with a replacement foam pad. I would just like to mount a foam sedan tire on mine.
