Finally got my hands on the Spektrum for the Futaba 3PK last week. I race 2 cars so I got and extra receiver so I would have the system in both. The binding process was very simple and the system worked flawless for us all weekend. There was about 6 different guys with the system at the track and they also had no problems at all and no interference or glitches. Very good product I think, it's the best product I have seen for the RC world in a very long time!!

Default spektrum

i ve had mine for a couple weeks but today i finally used it. there were at least five or six of them at our track. it is at least 250 feet from one corner of the drivers stand to the far corner of the back straight. nobody had any problems that i am aware of. at times all five were on the stand at once, the biggest issue is getting used to not seeing that antenna. The greatest part is not having to deal with all the guys going through the pits saying "who is on this or that?" "who has the clip" "how long before you will be done with the clip""no radios in the pits".
it has to be the best 160.00 i have ever spent on R.C.

TrickPony...maybe you didn't have your transmitter calibrated properly because your car was awfully slow I think you'll know who this is. Hint...look at the icon.

That was a good race. See you at the Regions.

I got the spektrum system for my R-1, works excellent. Bought another receiver 3 weeks ago. Was defective when I got it. Shipped it off to Horizonhobby.com, they received it on 4/11/04. Unfortunately, they aren't returning my email inquiries regarding it.

I heard there has been a rash of bad receivers that they let loose on the public, and I'm one of the "lucky" ones. Nothing like spending $85 on an item, and not being able to use it for over 3 weeks (and counting!) Right now I'm not especially happy, we'll see how horizon handles it.

Your lap times were good. I'm sure you'll get more next year. We know you'll be tough at Lakeland

Just save me a spot in the A. I won't get there till Sunday so I hope I can get a good qualifier in.
