Default What Radio controller to get

Just looking at upgrading my radio controller in order to set up my car better just wondering whats the best one to get with my budget which is about $250. Im currently looking at getting a SPEKTRUM DX3S would this be the best option with my budget or is there something cheaper thats the same?

I did look at the DX3R PRO but didnít think it was worth the extra money or is it?

The DX3R Pro is significantly better than the DX3S. It has a nicer feel to it, the drop down wheel, more features, and also uses DSM2 technology. It would be more responsive. If you're planning on a lot of racing, the 3R series would be better. If you just want something nicer than your stock transmitter, the 3S would be fine.

A lot of members here really like Futaba and they make some very nice transmitters as well. I personally have not had any issues with my Spektrum stuff, but others have.

I've been using the dx3s and love it. And would buy the same again. Just my 2 cents. Don't listen to Tyler. Lol see you on Saturday Ty
