FDS is right on the tx for price, that said the biggest key is to go with what others you know have or what is popular in the circle of support you have. Jumper T8's are popular and cheap, same with T12's. Lots of people to help with those here on the forum. If you are in my club I suggest spectrum because it is readily available in a store 20mins away, and myself and others know them inside and out locally. Graupner wound be a good choice as well locally due to so many of us having them as well. Here on the forum the lower cost full feature radios are popular.
