Default 3PKS: FASST Vs Spektrum HRS

Ive recently got my 3PK, and transfered over my Spek Pro module from my hitec agressor and love it, fantastic response time.

Ive heard alot of good things about Futaba's FASST system, about the dual antenna's and awesome response time. http://www.futaba-rc.com/radioaccys/futl8926.html

I was looking on Spektrums site, and they also have a module/reciever for the HRS mode on the 3PK that boasts 2.0ms response time. http://www.spektrumrc.com/Products/D...ProdID=SPM1015

Which of these is supposed to be better? Im just curious cause they both seem to boasts being the best system for the 3PK.

Has anyone run both? Opinions? Thoughts?

IMHO If you run a 3PK, go with Futaba`s FASST system, it seems to have the best wrap and hasnt had any glitches that i have ever seen/heard about.

All manafacturers will adapt this new type of modulation eventually, i think Futaba is ahead of the field though in reliability and smoothness, have heard some complaints about Spektrum systems.

Well I'm thinking of getting the 3PKS. My friends got one and it feels real comfortable. I have been hearing that the new Airtronics has very good response over Spektrum.

either will work good, I've got the oringal spektrum in my 3PK, never had a sngle issue with it, I've also used the pro version no issues, and my dad is running the FASST system and has had zero issues,

if youve already got spektrum, I'd stick with it so you have spare rx's,

I can tell you that I just went with the Fasst on my 3pk and its crazy responsive. Havn't heard anything bad about the Spek but if I had a 3pk and a choice to make I would stay with Futaba.
