There is a new DX3R coming. DX3R Pro. Who knows when it will be out, but I've seen a few of them now. Lots of the big name losi guys are using them. Other than the new drop down wheel feature I'm not sure what else is different. Looks like a cool radio.

I'm referring to drivers who pay for and have a choice in their equipment. Even if you want to consider the top pros, there's even fewer of them running Spektrum.

I don't care what anyone says, Spektrum makes damn good radios! They're the first and still the best when it comes to 2.4ghz. Problem with radios is that they are one of the biggest personal preference items. People are comfortable with different radios. I run the DX3R and absolutely love it. I've yet to have it glitch once and I love the easy to use menu/roller. The light weight is also very nice in long races.

Why? Simple. modern Rc drivers think a new hunk of kit will chop 2 min off laptimes and offer 50 min runtimes.

Looks almost as bad as the moldy barf KO....

While I love KO stuff and used their servo's forever, their Tx looks like something out of a bad 80's movie....


I've been pretty happy with my 3R. Light, easy on batts, small, has everything I need in a Tx and Chad's wrap looks bad arse on it

Right with ya man. I used to run Futaba specifically. I remember looking at the DX3R when it first came out and thought to myself... "I wouldn't be caught dead using that". That is until I decided to give it a try. I was soo concerned with how it looked that I ignored its capabilities. After getting used to the radio, I can't really imagine switching to anything else. Sure, other radios look cooler, feel different, have different features, but the DX3R is definitely a competition radio. The DX3R Pro is going to be really nice as well.

I will say one thing, and this is cool...

We ran a 24 hour touring car race a couple weeks ago at Jackson R/C. There were 12 teams attending and over half used DX3R radios. The coolest was the fact that we were able to run the full 24 hours on 1 set of AA batteries. Teams with Futaba radios and M11s couldn't do that and some had issues with cars taking off when the radios went dead.

That would be the one. I think it looks cool. It is an all silver DX3R with drop down wheel.

I've never heard of the KO radios, and tried to find their website online and can't. Does anyone have a link to their official site?
