Default air compressor

I want to get a air compressor to clean my nitro RCs, and maybe get an air brush to paint bodies in the future. What would be a good size to get and whats the max psi I would need?? I don't want anything too loud, I found this can someone tell me if this would be a good buy.

All I need is something that will get the job done and be reliable, thanks.

60-80 psi is all I ever use. Try home depot. I have an old Husky and I don't think they sell it anymore.

I have the older model of the one you are showing and it has done well for what you are looking for. I use it to airbrush, blow out computers, cleanup my trucks and buggies and to keep tires inflated. Look around , Walmart , here in the US sells it for 89-99, so 159 is a bit high, even if it is in canadian $$.
