Just got my 3PKS need I say more. But there both top radios. More drivers do use the m11. But the 3pk has a quicker response and is becoming more and more popular with the top drivers.

I have a 3PK and my friend has an M8. I find the 3PK more comfortable because I use the drop-down wheel. Other than that, they are similar.

i have the 3pk and am very happy with its performance,feel and balance, the only thing i changed was the wheel to an aluminium gv one which is 3-4mm bigger to suit my hand size

Ive always owned airtonics, and currently race with an M11, but I must say, the 3pk is a nice radio, nice and light, as is the EX10 from KO.
with how light those two radios are, im thinking about changing to one of them for the simple fact of hour long mains.

3PK less weight

3PK wheel spring rate
M11 wheel spring rate and triger spring rate

I used the 3PK since the first day they released over Japan.....I cannot grade M11, and I am sure it is just as good.........but using Futaba for the last 20 years or so (along with Sanwa Machine-1)........Futaba never failed on me on any of their products (radio, receivers and servos)

Not to mention, Futaba is only several hours away from where I live.

Thumbs up Futaba 3PKS is better value (compared to Sanwa M11)

SweeSeng, I'm also contemplating getting either the Sanwa M11 or Futaba 3PK Super. I'm currently using KO PROPO and Sanwa radios (I really like the KO PROPO EX-10 Helios).

However, I will most likely buy the Futaba 3PKS because the synthesized receiver and transmitter module is really convenient (no hassles with crystals, R303FHS accepts digital & non-digital servos) and it's less than SG$500 - that's better value compared to the Sanwa M11.

Also check out:

I have a 3PK, mated it with spektrum and i'll never look back. or even consider changing radios my own complaint is that its a little heavy, and i felt like i would drop it if my hands got tired but i just use a neck strap! you can't go wrong with a 3pk
