An Airtronics/Sanwa MT-4 is an excellent low-latency radio with telemetry (voltage, speed/RPM, temperature). They usually sell for around $200 (or look for used) which isn't 'cheap'-cheap... but is cheap-for-what-you-get, and is way less than you can pay for high-end race radios.

tall order...those features and "low cost" don't really go together.

I recently got a flysky GT3s radio. It has 10 model memory, 3 channels, end points, duel rates, expo, trims, LCD display and a Lipo battery. I use it for all my models. It doesn't have telemetry tho. But it was only $50.
