Default Radios around $200

I'm looking at upgrading my radio and receivers. I want to stay around $200. What are some good options?

Sanwa MT4S is in that price range.. possibly the best radio on the market.

For the money I agree completely

Most drivers who go from a Spectrum to anything else are happier

MT4S or a used M11x. Shop around and lowball enough you might even find an M12 for that. Avoid Spektrum at all costs.

Although offensive, this is both funny and realistic
