Futaba and Spektrum.  Each has its good and bad, and both fly the planes equally well.

All Hitec except for the lone JR 10SX on the right but is has since been replaced by a second Hitec A9.

Futaba 9-C on both 72 and 2.4. I use a Hitec 2.4 module and RXs but I use both Hitec and Futaba when on 72.

One Futaba 7C and two Futaba 8FG(s). The 8FGs are great.

Hitec Optic 6 (NOT the Sport). Love it, but really want an Aurora 9 as well.

Hitec Laser 6 FM, Futaba 7c 2.4, JR sport 400. Out of these three I like and use the Hitec Laser 6 the most.

My JR X-347 just died.. I replaced it and my four RX's with a Hitec A9 with a Opitma 9 (2) Optima 6's and a Minima 6 for less than a JR 9003 TX only. So far I'm happy with the ease of programing. Had one hiccup but that was my fault. I missed a step. Just new TX blues, so to speak. I'm much more comfortable with it now.

Hitec Optic 6 X2. One 72 MHz and the other 2.4 GHz. (Just got the latter)  It's all I've ever used and needed so far. Reliable and the prices are ridiculously low lately. Bought both second hand and have about $200 total invested...

Airtronics SD10G, 2 RDS8000 (both 2.4gHz), 1 RD8000 (72 mHz), 1 HiTec Optic 6 (Non-Sport) with 72Mhz Spectra module, and a 2.4 gHz Spektrum Module, as well as a newly acquires JR 9303 72 mHz. also have some older Futaba 72 mHz that I don't use.

Mostly use the SD10G, I would use it more if I had more Rxs for it. RD's not used much, Optic used fairly frequently, and the Jr is getting used a little more, as I get use to it!
