Default NEed help with decision with radio

I want to know which is the better deal

FM JR xr3 or the airtronics cx2p

I have noticed that they are both the same price at some stores

and people prefer airtronics but then cx2p is getting old. SO I'm confused and needs help to pick one of these great radios! THANKS!

As far as prefering Airtronics, that really only applies to the top radios (the M8 in particular). JR is more popular in the low and middle price range.

The JR XR3 would be the better choice of the two you listed. I just bought one myself - it's a good one.

The XR3 has now been replaced by the XR3i, it is a very nice radio and they have added some goodies to it from the previous XR3 like a counter. I'd definitely go for the JR.

Love my R1...... Still a JR radio, but it has a lot of nice features that actully help the way the car performs. ABS, Servo speed, Talk curve ETC....... The list goes on

That is too over the top for most people as far as adjustments are, but at least it has different levels, for deciding which adjustments you'd like to access. Its also expensive really expensive
