Cool! There's also a racer in my place that uses a stick radio. When I was first introduced to this hobby, I used stick radios but switched eventually.

hey frank. i tried my friends stick radio. it was a cheapo one. i think it had the throttle on the RHS and the steering on the LHS.... with your stick remote can you change which side is steering/throttle?

Yeah, I can swap gimbles pretty easily. But the standard stick position is having throttle on the left and steering on the right. Your friend may have changed it if he were left handed. I keep mine left - throttle, right - steering.

any radio is good for nitro it just has to be responsive a couple model memmory maybe abs braking and the most needed one is comfortability as us nitro drivers our arms get fairly tired in 1 hour races

I agree with the others, I myself chose the 3PK since I liked its feel and big screen It's true that the 3PK is a little heavy, but just connect a neck strap to the neck strap "connector" and you're ready for those 45 min finals

Default M11 Help

I'm struggeling with how to use the 3rd channel (AUX) on the M11. I read in the manual how to adj the trim, but I can't assign a switch or trim that seems to work.

Help.

the 3pk is a little heavy but with all those features who cares. all you need is a neck strap and your set for racing.

I don't think the 3PK is heavy but when you look at it you certainly get the impression it would be.

If you want to reduce the weight than use LiPo batteries and you'll get light weight and longer and more consistent power for the whole day. I run the Spektrum module in mine and easily got over two and a half hours in one day and this was with 2100 NiMh.

At first i didn't go much on the 3pk as it was very popular until after seeing ShAfTy's new 3PK i want one but i think a neckstrap would be in order for me.
seems to be light when you first pick it up but if you hold it for about 2 minutes you'll start to think other wise.

I tried the neck strap but found it annoyed me. I used the radio the other day for 5 x 30min sessions and not once did I think about the weight.

I also have a EX-10 Helios and I think that is a better radio as far as feeling goes, but it is just isn't as easy to configure (read intuitive).
