Thats an ugly radio! Yes whats inside is the thing the counts but i really don't think there will be much difference to the 3pk. Look how much stuff you can already do with the 3pk and still you wouldn't use all of it. So i don't think there is really a need for improvement. By the looks of it, it has a spektrum system built in, that could save some $$. but this is all my own opinion.

Would like to see this with the drop wheel extention? I like the looks of the transmitter I just would like to feel the balance of it(I never like the balance of my original 3PK).

It actually doesn't look that bad. We are all just way use to the "square" look that has been around since day one, which is about 30 years or so. So I think they are trying to make radios smaller and lighter by taking advantage of the better and small electronics of today. Maybe?? I'm trying to have an open mind here guys. I doesn't look top heavy like my Airtronics M11. The M11 is comfortable, but too damn heavy. And with my Lipo it's too top heavy. So I would like to see how this radio feels. Yeah, the drop down wheel is a MUST too. I'm sure they won't over look this. Lets see what comes about this radio.

I think the receiver is the same as the Fasst system, and I don't like this receiver. It's not enough small.
