Default Radio Question

Guys,

What would be a good TX and RX combination with a fast response would be, Futaba 3PK, Airtronics M11.
Currently I have a Airtronics MX3 with a Airtronics FM RX 92836 and looking to upgrade. for me the radio seems to slow, whats your opinion.

Thanks

Thumbs up Radio selection

all three brands are great, it depends on your preference. I like the K.O. propo, it has the adjustable drop down steering option,a mini receiver and it looks like one of those japanese robots on saturday morning t.v.

Not sure who has them in stock ,found pic on one of the german sites.

Check out the new Nomadio React ,claimed to be the fastest reacting radio period and looks to be available at around $299.

if you can even feel the difference on radios mentioned above you are more then human as far as response time, it's so small it's almost negligible

I've been using Hitec CRX and it was great. My only problem is that the availability of stuff for it is hard to find. That is why I decided to switch to Futaba 3PK. I just hope I made the right choice.

Well I guess I'm more than human then because I can feel the difference. I came from a CRX to a Nomadio. You really need to use the Sensor for about three or four weeks at all the different tracks you run on before it finally sets in that your new radio is much more responsive and faster. The thing I notice now is much smaller steering inputs are required to get the car around the track.

Ditto only thing is my EXZES has been spektrumized.
And have a spare TX that is waiting for a donor Nomadio Sensor or better yet ,the new React.

The KO is KOed in speed by the Nomadio by far.

The React the fastest radio period.

The frame rate of the Futaba HRS is 75hz the Nomadio 100Hz

Whe you ADD a plug in RF deck with 3ms to 15ms lag you are ADDING that lag to the lag of the radio already has. Thus you are slowing it down.
