Futaba 3PM-X 2.4GHz FASST Radio system

Futaba 3PM-X 2.4GHz FASST Radio system

Futaba have released the 3PM-X 2.4GHz FASST radio, which claims to eliminate the need to have one radio for racing, another for rock crawling and yet another for monster trucks. The 3PM-X is the single, affordable system that can handle them all. It retains the features of the popular 3PM while adding performance and programming pluses that expand driving fun, all with the security and dependability of 2.4GHz FASST technology. Now modelers can set up a two or three position switch to control the dig function on their crawler while, with just the push of a button, they can access normal, crab, front-wheel only or rear-wheel only steering modes. Other features includes digital trim strips that allow the user to choose a level of trim adjustability, from fine-tuning finesse (1) to maximum travel (16), while an adjuster function keeps throttle and steering throws as well as centering at programmed ideals for optimum performance.
