Default FM radio

I have used an am transmitter for ever and think its time to move on to FM.
I only need a two channel but noticed almost all FM are three or more.
any recommendations?
I would use it for my touring cars.

A very good choice for an FM radio is the JR XS3, it has all the available channels for either 75mhz or 27mhz (since it is synthesized), it comes with a metal gear servo that is excellent for touring and it is not that expensive.

The MX-3 is another solid choice. I like the feel of it, feels like quality is there, my older JR radio ( XR3 ) didn't feel that way, but the new one also feels of quality as well. You can't go wrong with either one.

the synthesized JR XS3 is an awesome one to start with, but for the price you can get the better and most popular M8. AND IN LATE JUNE OR JULY, their syn. module & receiver hits the market

Grip is very important - find one, that fits nice into your hand.

Personally, I find that mid range radios like MX3, XS3, KO Presto, 3PDF do really good. They got more features than what most people need.

If you also drive nitro, 3PK might be interesting, since it got a fail safe built in.

also find one that has a good balance so your wrist doesnt get tired as much for long mains, as well as 5min. ones.
