The Turnigy 3XS features a large, easy to read back-lit LCD, a quick access jog wheel for function selection and programming, 15 model memory, steering wheel extension as standard and a host of programming features normally only found on expensive "high-end" radios.

The 3XS not only looks great, it feels great in your hands, which is what really counts when it comes to surface radios. The ergonomics have been very well thought out on this one making all the functions such as Steering/Throttle trims easily accessible while operating your model. No need to take your hands off of the wheel or throttle trigger to make adjustments on the go!

This radio system is compatible with and includes the HK3100 3CH FHSS receiver. This receiver is compact and lightweight allowing you to install it in just about any model's radio compartment.

not too shabby. sort of a cross between the futaba 4pl and 4pk. considering the whole radio system is cheaper than rx's for our "name brand" radios. well done hobbyking!

Sorry to burst your bubble, but this particular radio ain't by FlySky, although we all do hope so!

I've updated post 1 as I found who made these.

I know they're not compatible - I was lamenting that fact. Graphs and whatnot are nice bling, but I'm not sure there's any actual value in this beyond what you'd get from a GT3B with custom firmware. And since the RXs for this cost twice what the flysky RXs go for, it gets a lot more expensive in the long run just to get a fancy display.

I think its just a naming system. I dont think this system would work with a Futaba radio. Check the discussions at HK. Some has tried but it doesnt work.
