Default Video Beginner need advise

What system would you guys suggest for a piper cub J3 48, TX and RX, which would give me a good relation between quality, Range and cost? I have no clue what to use and don't want to spend too much.

Thanks,

Nilo

Thanks man,

Any Video file I could watch from this kit? Is this the regular cost I will find for other kits with close quality?

Thanks,

Nilo

Here are a couple of videos from my Aerobird with the 200mw BlackWidowAV system:

[link=http://www.s93421871.onlinehome.us/highflight.wmv]High Flight[/link]

Keep in mind that the videos shown here are heavily compressed, the raw footage quality is outstanding.

Nice vids,I am DIZZY from all the aileron juglin maybe use the rudder some more for turns unless that was the effect you were going for. Keep up vids.Still thinking about that Blackwidow 200 seems very nice.
That One tree looked CLOSE WEW.

I wish I had ailerons! I just have a "V" tail with mixed control. The plane is tough to keep still in any wind (it's got a <3' wingspan). I am looking for a bigger plane now...

Just wondering. I am setting up a GP 40. Cub for RPV use at the moment, just as a testbed for telemetry setup. I just thought I should check if yours was GP to.
