Depends on how much you are willing to spend mate.

If you dont want to spend loads of money as you are just entering the hobbie, then get a cheaper radio, and buy a precise, fast servo for it.

For ESC's i would go for summit like an LRP sport or prosport, or if willing to spend money then go for a quantum.

Have fun
