Default T-Rex Components Help!!! Please!!!

Hi, I live in Argentina nd I will be traveling to the US and/or Canada in the next few months, and would like to buy a T-Rex heli. I already fly gas helis, but as i have little free time and the field is quite far, i thought an electric heli would be an option.
I want to buya T-Rex XL or T-Rex SE (most sport flying no 3d at least for a year)
9650 tail servo and 401 gyro
cyclic servos ??
futaba or jr radio (maybe 7CH futaba or 6102 JR)
Align stock motor and ESC???
2 battery packs about 2000 mAh
charger??
I would really apreciate it if you could tell me which would be a good setup for me so I dont have to upgrade soon, and how much would it cost. Thankful in advance
Manuel Menzella

PS I am not planning to spend more than 1200 o 1400 us dollars!! Thanks

I wish my LHS didn't charge retail and sometimes above retail for everything they sell. Those prices are great from an LHS.

Boy do I agree! This is a brand new hobby shop. I am not use to such great prices from my LHS.

I think I will get that configuration.
I have one dude, though: is the Futaba 7CH better than that transmitter??

The Futaba 7Ch is a great Tx. But all I can say is do some research on these new DSM radios. The DX-7 is a great radio. No interference, no one on your channel, plus lot's of other benefits. Check it out.
