[link=http://www.spektrumrc.com/DX3/Default.html]This one from Spektrum[/link] will be best within your budget range if you can wait until its release soon. For myself, I personally love my Futaba 3PK the best.

The spektrum technology is much better than that. It operates on the 2,4 gHz band and when it's turned on, it finds a vacant frequency and locks onto it. Thereby it prevents other radios from that specific frequency and that means no more frequency troubles and no more crystals.
It is clearly the next step and my guess is that in a few years only the very cheap tx/rx systems will operate with crystals.

The [link=http://www.airtronics.net/Pistol_M8.htm]AIRTRONICS M8[/link] has been around many years already. It's been using by many RC car champions around the world. But as it's been out for long times, some new functions are not there. Some people will go with the [link=http://www.futaba-rc.com/radios/futj2900.html]Futaba 3PK [/link] or etc.
BTW you should keep an eye on the new coming [link=http://www.tq-racing.com/products/sanwa/M11release.htm]SANWA M11![/link]
One thing I forgot to mention is that these few radios are not Spektrum built-in, but they are able to be added on the [link=http://www.horizonhobby.com/Search/Default.aspx?SearchTerm=spektrum&OverallCatID=]Spektrum modules.[/link]

Does anyone know a date when the Spektrum DX3 will be coming out? It looks like the radio I have been waiting to get. I am going to go to my LHS and see when they can order it in....and if they can get the price that is posted on line or at least close to it. I hope to have this by fathers day! That would be sweet...
