Default MX11x vs 4PKS

I am in the market for a new radio. I have owned a M8 in the past but have sold it awhile back. Can anyone with experience with both give some feedback on which one they think is the best.

I am mainly interested in the M11x or 4PKS, but if there is anything else that stands out, such as Spectrum, I am open to checking them out as well.

I have been out of the hobby for several years and liked the feel of the M8, as my hands are a little above average in size. I never used Futaba but hear they are awesome as well.

Thanks

M11x 4PKS or DX3R Pro or KO-Propo EURUS.

M11x feels quite heavy compared to Eurus. The eurus has not just dropdown option but the wheel can swivel which makes it very comfortable and for big hands has large exchangeable grip as an option.
Eurus is the fastest radio available if you can feel the difference. Several friends switched from M11x to Eurus after trying it.

I have not heard where the Eurus is the fastest radio out there? Where did you get that information?

Someone on the TC6 thread said the M11x was the fastest...

I looked on the KO sight and it did not say anything about being the fastest.It talked about being faster then normal radio but nothing about being fastest.Last I heard the m11x with the SSR receivers and servos blew every one else out of water.

I got the sarcasm.I just looked at the site to see if they said it somewhere.NOTHING! You figure that if you have the fastest radio on the market you would want to advertise it was the fastest( Like airtronics does with the m11x)

Is there a big difference between the M11 and M11x? Is it worth the extra $$$ for the newer version.

I saw the MT4 thread and though I havenít used one, from looking at the pics and posts, it looks a bit cheap compared to the M11s. I think I would rather go the M11/M11x if it is worth the investment.

Look at my post on that thread.It is not a cheap looking radio.The pics do not do it justice. M11x is faster and has the SSR capability.The m11x is the racers radio.I think that the MT-4 has to appeal to both the racer and the basher and is SSR capable too.The only bad part is no backlight. Once people get their hands on MT-4 and see one first hand I think that radio will sell like crazy.You have can go with the sport receiver or the SSR receiver or anything in between. You have your choice of 5 different receivers.

I will say also, that my new 4pks is the sweetest feeling radio I have felt. I had been using an M11with Spektrum pro. I like it so much that after my first brand new 4pks got stolen eith less than 2 hours time , I bought another new one. I still had my M11, but I still paid another 500.00 for a new one, making my current investment 1k to drive with it.

I think the m11x is the fastest if you buy the new rx. 3.5 miliseconds or something like that. I have a 4pk and love it. I just wish i had the better jog on the new one.
