Ko Helios w/ drop down wheel & spektrum (mostly)
Radio is very comfy & adjusts to any preference.
Menu is intuitive & easy to navigate.
Futaba servos for most applications. Smooth & accurate.

I have been using the R-1 for about a year now. Wouldnt change it for anything else. Awesome display and super easy to change setups. Just makes you feel less of a newbie with a professional radio like it.

Futaba Magnum Sport for my Kyosho .15 GT Boat
Then the stock HPI radio that came with my RS4. Both feel nice to me.

nice and easy to use/setup and feels comfortable in my hands with the wheel extension.

I try to stay away from ABS, I have damaged a few servos because of it. I usually use the End Point Adjustment so the servo doesnt try to go beyond what it can go. And also I use the trims and lap timers...
