I think that you should ask yourself where do you plan on racing. If its just local club events you can get away with a crystal radio and maybe one more crystal just in case. If you are going to be racing in large events, a crystalless radio might be better.

That said, I have the XS3 and love it. It's not as full featured as the M8 or the 3PK but I really like it. The receiver could be a little smaller.

I too have the jr x3. Liked the radio, then I went to the 3pk. Big difference. I also tried the novak crystaless receiver. After using it for about a month I began having bad glitching problems with the receiver using the Futaba and Jr txs. I did use extra servo tape in both my ntc3 and mrx3. Presently I put the novak in my b3 buggie and no problems. So just beware or going crystaless ifor nitro

I haven't raced at any state races or anything like like. right now i usually go up to Palm Bay once a month and race up thier. I could probably get away with a couple crystals, but the problem i have run into the past couple months is when i want to practice both my crystals are out. So if i go crystal free all i gotta do is dial it in and im practicing. Also, it would save some room not having to carry extra crystals. not that they take up alot of space, but thats one less thing for me to remember to take .

how much bigger is the reciever. right now i have the reciever that came with my XR3i. do you know how the two sizes compare (XRS3i Vs XS3 reciever)?
