Default Radio for Easy Star & Easy Glider

I just ordered the plane-only Easy Star kit as my first r/c plane. I was tempted to get the RTF version but knew I would outgrow the Hitec Neon 3 radio quickly. I already know the Easy Glider will be my next plane, after I get comfortablr on the Easy Star, and will stick to electric planes only (mostly gliders, but maybe a sport model or two). So what radio would you recommend if that's my upgrading path?

The Hitec Laser 4 FM looks like a good beginner 4 channel but should I get something a little more future-proof?

Thx for the input scooper. It sounds like I can't go wrong with the Laser 4. Futaba's 4EXA Computer sounds a little more advanced (in a good way) for not much more money but I think I'll get the Laser unless someone else chims in otherwise.

PS Nice looking planes scoop!
