It has spektrum which is good, but it's features is the same as a Futaba 3PDFX. All other radios you mentioned have far more advanced and more options for fine tuning. If you don't need all the other adjustments and just want spektrum that radio is great. I plan on buying one some time later on.

I used the Spektrum DX3 for a total of 3 weekends before getting rid of it. It is a very BASIC radio. There are minimal adjustments on it (basics). No Exponential, no ABS, Traction Control, etc ... All the things that are in the other radios you mentioned. In a nutshell, this is the JR XR2 radio with a spektrum module in it. Even the servos are rebadged JR servos.

I do race my car competatively and this radio didn't have what was needed in my situation as far as adjustments were concerned. I would suggest passing on this radio if you are in to organized racing. If you run in the park and mess around with friends, then this is the radio for you.

As a matter of fact YES there is a module for the 3PJs. Only reason I know is because that's the exact radio that I am using The module used for the futaba 3PK an 3PJS is the same. Just make sure that when you install the module, it is in the PPM mode instead of PCM.
