Default Caomputer radio

I am still flying my Alpha with the entry level radio. I have recently bought an Ultra-stick 40 for my second plane. I notice in the manual that a computer radio is necessary to get the full features from this plane, later down the road when I am ready for the aerobatics. I would like some suggestions for the best radio to purchase for this plane and others I might add to my fleet.

Well that particular plane is best flown with a 7 channel radio (2 aileron, 2 flaps, rudder, elevator, throttle). Using all servos on their own channel give you lots of flexibility. I'm not sure a Futaba 7U will handle all the options you might want on it. The 9C super would get you most everything.

Whatever radio you get, make sure that it has the crow feature.

I'm guessing you have the Quatro radio? If not, disregard this part. 8103s are pretty inexpensive right now. My guess is that one could be had for less than $150. That would work with your current receiver (which probably doesn't have enough channels for the US) and allow you to fly both planes off of one radio. Keep the Quatro as a buddy box to rope your friends into the hobby.

In order to fully ustilize the 4 flap wing, you need a transmitter that can handle all 4 servos on individual channels.

Hitec Eclipse 7
Futaba 9C, 12Z
Jr 8103 & 9303, 10X
Jr 7202 or Spektrum DX7 - with extensive work with mixers
Airtronics Stylus
Multiplex Royal Evo 9 or 12

These will get the job done.
