Airtronics mt-4 is going to be faster. I prefer the feel of the MT-4 in my hands and the feel f the throttle/steering.

Both are gonna be very similar in features and the speed difference is virtually negligible. You won't notice the difference between 5.0ms and 2.5ms.

The best thing for you to do is to get a feel of each one and see which one you like. I did the same and chose the MT-4.

I think you'll have more options of cheaper receivers with spectrum. I currently have an mt4 and with my growing fleet of cars, am seriously considering selling it and going with spectrum.

I'd never trade my MT4 for a Spektrum product. My Spektrum is total glitchy shit with crap range and I regularly consider dropping it in the lake.

I only have an XRAY 808 I'm not planing to get more than one car at a time so I'm leaning to the airtronics because spektrum has their history with a lot of glitches and frequency problems I've heard

Oh man Airtronics is much better i used to use Spektrum radios and there modules . Airtronics feels faster to me in reponse and you dont need a Gitch buster if your running a servo that is high voltage. I run the Mx3x radio love it !

I would think the MT4 has about every feature that is actually usefull .

Quality is just more better than Spektrum.

The only reason why i think people get the Spektrum is because a lot of hobby stores carry it and the Receivers are cheaper but than again you can buy a extra Airtronics Sport Receiver for $60.
