Default Radio equip for a Savage 4.6

Hello,
Now that x-mas is out of the way and my 3 kids are semi happy I have enough funds to finally purchase the savage 4.6 kit. I really don't have much money to spare after this, so I am looking for a radio setup that will do the trick, but still fairly inexpensive? I know the steering servo is the most important, hitec 645 I think is the popular one. I was checkinh ebay and there are a ton of Traxxas T-maxx radios with receivers for cheap $. I'm failry new to this and was wondering if these would work with the savage and the hitec servos? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Or should I just settle for the 25 rtr?
Thanks for your input!!!

I don't now what your budget is, so I'll take a wild stab. The Airtronics MX series and Hitec Aggressor series radios are good beginner choices. As a rule of thumb, you'll want a 3 channel radio, with the third channel being used for the reverse module if you decide to install one. An exapmle of this would be the Airtronics MX-3S packaged with two standard servos (for throttle/brake and the optional reverse module). This is a synthesized radio, so you don't have to changed frequency crystals if you need to change frequencies.

As for your steering servo, a good pick would be the Hitec HS-945. I ran one of these in my Savage and it worked flawlessly.

I am getting the [link=http://www.pkracing.nl/graupnerzenderplaat.jsp]Graupner XS-6 PRO SPORT FM synthesizer 40 mHz [/link] with Hitech 645 servos.

The cost of 1 reciever and 1 crystal set is the same for 1 reciever for this thing which in the long run will save money on different crystals for when there is another person running the same frequency.

I think that the European name for the [link=http://www.jrradios.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdID=JRP337275]JR XS3 Pro Synth FM Pistol, 2 Sx, 75MHz [/link].
