Just look for any 3 channel FM radio, Futaba, Airtronics, JR are all great FM radio's, if you can affrod a bit more then I would go with a DSM, Spectrum makes a good nice unit, you can get them for about 250$ at Horizon Hobby.

I agree with Spektrum. The three channel version comes with 2 servos and a 2nd reciver. Never have to worry about changing crystals or what channels other drivers are using. Great deal for $240-250 price range and it also has a three model memory

i have a dx2 and i like it. it cost $170. i wish i had the 2nd receiver though, it has a 2 model memory. when i had warheads, i upgraded to traxxas tq3 and hpi radios. one of my warheads had a range of less than 75 feet. atleast i had a failsafe in it so it would just stop. i'd walk towards it 10 feet, then i could regain control and bring it back. i swapped that radio out soon after that and sold the radio for the pair of crystals that a buddy needed.
