Default M8-M11 w/spektrum VS. 3PK w/FASST

Looking for some opinions. I've been running a M8 for a long time now with the Spektrum module in it. I've recently won a 3PK with the FASST system in it, in a raffle durring a two day race I went to.

How does the 3PK compare to a M8 or M11. Problem is I have lots of spektrum recievers and would have to buy lots of futaba recievers to get all my cars switched over to it. Is it worth changing radios? My M8 is getting a little dated, but still works just fine. I want to either use the 3PK, get a M11, or look at that new Spektrum radio when it comes out.

id say the 3pks with the fasst is far better then my time with the m8 and m11. the fasst is super smooth and u will notice it if u make a switch.. and if u have digital servos wow it will really make them come alive... but the fasst recievers are expensive about 90 bucks for a new one... compared to say 70 for the specktrum... and i cant find them used anywheres either...

You do realize Airtronics has their own 2.4 GHz system now?? Apples to apples???
I run the M11 with Spectrum brand stuff and it works great.
Not sure about the Futaba version but we have had no customer complaints.

the futaba fasst is stupid fast compared to the spektrum pro. The airtronics system is just the same as the spektrum, only their receiver is smaller.

Just try them both out to see what you like.

And the cost of the receivers is negligible, 90 for the fasst and 85-90 for the spek pro.
