Define "best."

I work for Spektrum (I write the code for the DX and NX transmitters). I'd say the best are the ones I work on, because I know and understand them best. We lead the pack with innovation and support, both online and for repairs.

You need to define what you mean by "best".
Least expensive?
Longest lasting?
Most dependable to provide control while in use?
Flexibility to configure controls/outputs as you desire?
Least amount of setup time/complexity to use?
Specific uses - multirotors vs airplanes vs tanks vs boats.
How does it fit with requirements for additional items - (receiver cost, receiver range, receiver dependability, etc.)

All of the major brands (Spektrum, Futaba, Frsky, Jeti, etc.) have a range of very capable/dependable choices that may fit in your personal definition of best, albeit with some deficiencies in some of the criteria (Is a $2000 Spektrum better for your use than a $250 one? Is a Frsky $450 better (or worse) than those? Etc.) It all depends on your priorities and needs/desires....

I have a Spektrum SRS6000 receiver that quit working. I thought maybe it came unbound or something then when i went to re-bind on my DX4C I noticed that there are no lights on it and the esc acts like there isn't anything hooked to it. Would you have any suggestions?

Logic in a brand war.

BTW, Andy is being honest. "The one I design is the best "
