Default Which Radio for Savage 4.6 Kit would you get?

Hey Guys,
I would like some feedback from experienced rc enthusiasts!. Which radio/receiver would you get for a savage? Cost is an issue. I want something reasonably priced. If possible, I would also like to get away without crystals. But that depends mostly on costs. Any suggestions?

Ps: i just sold my rtr 25 so I can buy the 4.6 kit

I am going to get the Airtronics MX-3S for my Savage 4.6 SS. Will be my first FM and I will have to change my other nitro’s shortly after I get it. Futaba left a bad taste in my mouth with a problem I had with them!!!!!!!

I have the JR XS3 75 Mhz fully synthesized TX and RX it has 6 model memory. Which mean I can have up to 6 different RX's with 1 TX. They have a new Pro version out now that comes with an even smaller RX (the 310), and 10 model memory.

I highly recommend this radio if you want a lot of capabilities with out spending a Ton of $$$$.[8D]

The Airtronics MX-3s has an 18-model memory. Here is a link to the one I am getting.

i wouldnt get anything not compatible with the spectrum system. Forget crystalls, try changing channel automatically if intereference occurs which is highly unlikely due to it's 2.4ghz band. www.horizonhobby.com
