Spektrum has some great 2.4gHz radios at great prices. One word of caution though, with the latest advanced-timing software and digital brushless servos, the BEC (receiver battery eliminator circuit in the ESC) can get a bit overloaded. It's wise to run a capacitor in the extra receiver port to help supply current during high load situations. Those caps are sold as "stutter stoppers".
Many people have NO problems with this, but I've heard issues more and more lately as the amp draws increase and servos get more powerful.
