Default Spektrum DX3.0

I was wondering, my lhs sells this radio with 2 receivers and servos for 219 dollars, 190 dollars without servos. Would this be a good investment for the price and quality?

What do you have for a radio now? receivers go for $50 a piece so I would thinks it's not a bad deal. Is this the level of radio that you need? Servos are worth the extra $ if one of them is the metal gear one.

I am curently using a JR XS3. I have been racing 1/18 for a while so the 1/10 size servos are useless to me.

The DX3.0 is a good radio for it's price, but the down side is that it has a 4 model memory. Not a problem if you plain on staying with only 4 cars, but it'll seem a waste of money if you go over that number. Other than that, it's a vary fine radio with nice trim adjustments.

I think if I went over 4 cars at one time I would most likely become single again

On another note I either want this radio or the new dx3s. But the dx3s seems to have way to many things I dont need, esspecially the telemetry.

Would the 50 dollars extra be worth going with dx3s, and they both come with 2 receivers.

The DX3S comes with two receivers. no servos I think. And you might find the telemetry a nice little extra. It's got a 10 model memory, so that's a nice option to have, just in case you buy more cars later.

x2..id have to agree..after I bought my dx3.0 for $200 with extra reciever I noticed amain had the 3s for only $25 more and wished id gotten it instead..more model memory is just nice to hold a greater value in the long run+telemetry for $225 with amain voucher..if you look around there are sr3000's for $35 used... either radio is nice though..
