Axe FX III owners... What are the main limitations with the FM3?

I've owned my Axe FX III for less than year and I absolutely LOVE IT!... But I might want to get the FM3 to carry around on small jams...

Axe FX III owners... What are the most obvious issues with the FM3?

Only limit I see is if you want to load up a preset to the max. I can load up an Axe III preset and pretty much have it all. With the FM3, I have no problem having bread & butter presets for Fender, Vox, Marshall & Mesa's (Wah, Phaser, OD, Amp/Cab, Chorus, Flanger, Rotary, Delay, Verb) then creating specialty presets for certain songs or FX. So I'm just using more presets, which is not a drawback at all, IMO.

Thank you, I'm also thinking simple presets...

The 3 switches are not an issue for me... I would not even carry my FC-6 either... I'm thinking about how practical it would be to only bring that little guy to my buddies places and jam....

Still not decided yet...

I was surprised how light it is. I didn't comment on the 3 switches til I had a chance to try it out. It's very intuitive and easy to get the hang of.
