There are plenty of options out there for remotes. Do you want a trigger style RC car remote or an Airplane style remote? Futaba will always be a solid option in either case and I recommend having some extra channels available just in case. If you plan to use up to 4 channels, look at 6 channel remotes.

If cost is an issue you can look at some cheaper lines but I am a firm believe in the you get what you pay for ideology.
