I bought the Iwata HP-CS. It wasn't too expensive. There are cheaper airbrushes for sure but you will get what you pay for. I coughed up the money for a decent brush right away so I wouldn't have to spend extra in the long run. You should be able to get it for under $200.

I use an Iwata Evolution ($70) brush. I have used it for the last 3 years and after 30+ paint jobs for customers it has yet to let me down. Well worth the small amount of cash.

yes would agree, best bet be any one of the Lines from Iwata
personally myself and the detail painters here at our shops we'll use Iwata HP-CS Eclipse
for the insane detail chopper stuff we'll sometimes use our Custom Micron's
but the Eclipse series will run around 109.00 and there pretty versitile.
Gravity feed would be best if changing colors quick
check our R/C site for some idea's on the painting we'll do with the Eclipse series.

The Iwata Revolution and Paasche VLs are great brushes that won't break the bank. You'll find these brushes will handle any and all R/C purposes.
