i have a stock remote for my ntc3. i have had to replace the servos on it once already and looked up that they were just as good as some of the better ones.

well if your looking to invest in the hobby there are the main high end radios like the futaba 3pk, airtronics m11, and the ko propo helios. you cant go wrong with any of these. There are some good radios from other manufacturers as well. If your racing you would definitely wanna invest in some good servos.

I like the Ko propo helios cause of its balance, and the dropdown just makes it feel even better.

Default NEW CONTROLLER

I have had three M11<still have two of them> and just bought the new Z1 and love it. It is quite a bit lighter, balance is better, plus the drop down wheel is great. I have had so many problems with Airtronics products lately, that I even started changing out my servos.
I just turned in <5> Airtronics servos for repair, and have had two of the M11s in for repair.
I use the M11 for the buggies only now, and the Z1 for onroad.
Just ordered the lipo battery for the Z1, and this will make it even lighter.

I love my M11. From the vibration alerts timers to and mulit function and programing, it is a great tool! Plus, It makes big muscles!
