If you are not going to use the MFU for the F350 (I don't on mine) then any 3Ch would work fine as well. I prefer the pistol/wheel over the twin sticks my self. There are a number of nice 3Ch radios out the for under 200$. You can pretty much find something in your price range from most manufactures (i.e. Futaba, Airtronics, Spektrum...) So its just a matter of finding what features you like, and which one fits your hand the best. I use the 3PK (not to cheep though) for all my cars. One radio, rather then multiple transmitters. Not to shy you away from this forum, but there is a forum dedicated to the hilift, you can find alot of good information for your F350 there. I am also a member there as well. Both are great forums.
Check it out, you might find some good info there as well.
