Very Good Radio. Good range. ABS Brakes are kinda cool. A little heavy because it takes 8AA batteries though!

Great radio for the price, it has alot of good features/adjustments and the range is very good, also i find the batteries last a long time.... Pro- Great upgrade for any RTR vehicle or someone lookn for a 2.4ghz, so much easier to drive my SCT now.... Con- The plastics used seem a bit budget, but otherwise i cant fault this radio....

Great quality, lots of features and very adaptable. Built solid and seems to work really well- huge range. This is definitely a step up from Spektrum

I bought mine for marine use (Competition and fun) Excellent range over water. Reliable radio with very good range of features for electric marine use.

Great radio Very nice for the price. The only bad thing is the plastic feels cheap. Also wish they would come with a rechargeable battery.

Correction to previous review: the new $60 receivers (FHSS system) are not compatible with this radio, which is FASST system. I'm not sure exactly what the difference is, but I assume this one has faster response time since it is not frequency hopping. -//- I have the previous generation of this radio, the non-X version. The only difference between them is that the non-X version doesn't have steering mixes or the 2/3 option for crawlers. (whatever that is) The transmitter works perfectly. Tha[More…]

Been using 3PM for over 7 years now (the previous version). Feature wise, and for the most part, everything was great and working as expected. Except for the wheel which is not smooth, started squeaking noise after within a year usage (but it's okay, it can still turn, just have to bare with a little rough edge at the end when I turn my wheel all the way to the right. Also I had to send in the unit for repair (could not turn on) @ futaba after a yr usage and they indicated was bad soldering join[More…]

I have had my 3PM for about a year and a half now and I have enjoyed it since the day I got it. It has all the features that I need and then some...the interface is a little confusing at first, but once you get the hang of it, it is fairly easy to make adjustments. The range is great...mostly because I have never run out of it...I have never had an experience where range is an issue nor do I foresee any that it will be. It does use 8AA batteries, but they last a good long time. Rechargeable'[More…]

This is a good radio for the money, however there are better ones out there. The range is good as is the ease of programming. Dislikes include the quick trim buttons (4 total) are nice for a quick adjustment, but can get bumped easily adjusting settings un intentionally. Additionally / eventually the buttons can stick (which is why I am replacing mine with a different radio) and eventually become nonadjustable. I have used Futaba for years, and will continue to do so - just not with this mod[More…]

Got this set & several receivers. To replace the Spektrum sets. That come with RTR Team Losi vehicles. Now I have one transmitter for three vehicles. The Futaba look better built & is free of glitching. I might update my Losi vehicles in future. But I won't be parting with the Futaba radio gear. I know there's newer models & with improved technology. But for the price of a new set. You can have several of these. I'd much rather use the money saved. For upgrades for my vehicles. As no matter the [More…]

Wonderful controller I've had it going on 6 years and still works like the day I got it. Would highly recommend it.

Overall it's a very nice transmitter. The range on this thing is incredible. I also like the 10 model memory - although you cannot name your models, you just assign them a number. It seems pretty sturdy and very precise in its operation. I like all the custom functions. The only downside is that, like other reviewers have said, it's very "plasticky" and feels cheap. I'm confident that the electronics inside are top notch but its placed in a cheap feeling case. The older Futabas I still have from[More…]
