I am retiring my outdated am and fm freq. radios.
Can anyone shoot some recommendations my way as to a good modern day radio for boat racing.
I'm looking for no more than 3ch a long radio range that I can run a full course on with no loss of signal.
Some extra model memory, and easy to tune while on water without having to take eyes off boat.
Please send me some Recomendations

Hey Brian thanks for you question. Nearly everyone is using DSM freq. radios now which require no freq. clips and can be used with many other DSM radios in use at the same time. An entry level 3 channel pistol grip (Boater standard style) would be the Futaba 3PV 3-Channel FHSS System for about $119. Obviously you can get much higher end models with many other bells and whistles but you really don't need all that for a boat which is primary only 2 channels. It is best to use digital servos with these new digital radios though and make sure you use a good high torque rudder servo. Let me know if I can help you any further.

Thanks

Thanks Jesse
You addressed some great info
I was leaning toward the Futaba 3pv, I like the idea it can work with a few different receiver options.
I raced years ago with the futaba magnum Jr. Great radio for its time.
I am currently working to get back into boat racing after finding out about Voodoo.
I have came out and watched a few of the races you have hosted and really had as much fun watching as I would have racing, you put on a great events, and the members make you feel like old longtime friends, I have a stryker F41 with a brushless system I'm working on. Hope to have it ready soon so I can come out and race with you guys.
