Default Spectrum DX3R - 2.4GHz DSM2 technology

I guess this ups the ante in the 2.4GHz. Anybody going to run out and buy it??

Thanks to redrc.net for the heads up on this new product!

Looks ok but me personally I'd stick to the more commonly used Airtronics, Futaba, & KO radio. But I agree with the earlier post its all prefference.

You can still send it in to get fixed... For some reason I never keep my RC receipts ...when I owned a DX3 I had the same problem, was still fixed by Horizon..yay! Same thing happened on my M11, no warranty, and Airtronics fixed that, though both did cost. I figure EVERYTHING in RC will cost, so dont count these radios as a "one time" purchase. Electronics will always have problems.

BTW I think this is Fugly! Though to each his own, as I think the M11 looks SHHWWEEET! Others think it looks more like a portable HDTV! If only I could watch Prisonbreak on it....

Since Airtronics is not releasing a FHSS system for the M11 but an DSSS system, I hope Spektrum releases this "DSM2" for the M11. Though I am curious as to what this DSM2 is really.....hype or actually something useful/ better.

....Even Futaba. The pots will get dirty or the caps may later need replacing. Its just a part of owning electronics.
