Default Shopping for new transmitter

It's been awhile since I shoped for radios...

Anyone know the best value on a transmitter that will do the CCPM mixing necessary for the CP HBird. This will be used with my existing Futaba and compatible Berg receivers.

Thanks

What about the jr x2610? It can do CCPM for 90, 120 and 180 degree swashplate. It is my first computer radio and I'm still learning it, but it seems to do all one needs for cp heli. The price is under 100 pound in Europe wich is very unexpensive.

I think JR uses a different "shift" than the Futaba - I dont' weant to have to replace all my receivers. I forgot to mention - I need to transmit on CH 7 - which is in the Amateur Band. My current Futaba T6AS is on Ch7 and of course works withthe receivers I have - but darn the luck - the HB CP needs the CCPM mixing and this radio won't do it. I'd stay with Futaba but dont want to pay for the 9C or similar. I figure theres something cheaper - and compatible - available.

Channels 00 - 09 are on the 50 Mhz band and are reserved for those who hold a valid amateur radio license. There's less competition for these channels - nice if you fly at a busy field since you seldom have to share the frequency pin.
