Default transmitter and receiver help

I am going to convert a guillows model to rc, the model that I would build is the p-51d (905). I need to know what kind of transmitter should I get and receiver.
Preferably a 4 channel.
P.S. I will be the only one flying a rc device in the area I would be flying which is a soccer field at Randalls island

Mister Newguy-
Your enthusiasm is wonderful. But I would recommend saving the warbird for later would be a prudent move. You must learn to build and fly really well before you take on such a project. Even experienced modelers could find the job daunting.
I would recommend you start with a simple plane like the GWS Slow Stick http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXHCJ2 .
Collect the electronics to fly it and learn to do so until it's worn out. Then build a high-wing Guillows model and transplant the motor and electronics from the Slow Stick. (I did just this thing with a Comet Sparky). Once you succeed with this step you may be ready for the Mustang and (again) you will already have the electronics and power system.
Good Luck!

It looks like it will.
BTW Hobby king also has a SS: http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store...60mm_PNF_.html
....and their Turnigy line of budget radios are pretty good.


Battery: 2s, 800mAh Lipoly
