I can tell you now, the Tactic TTX240 is an awesome radio for the price. It doesnt have any inmpressive features like Airtronics or Spektrum have, all it has is an adjustable steeering throw (or whatever you call it, you can make it steer a little bit, or a lot)
All that, and a receiver for $80 or so, and the receivers are very cheap as well. Ive never had any glitching with it, and the 4 AA batteries last for sooo long as well.
Not trying to push this to you, but its a freakin awesome radio for the price
