It depends where you're heading and how much you wanted to expand your hobby.

Futaba: Good for scale flying, fast response time, solid gimbal stick and precision flight on bigger size planes.

Spektrum: Good for parkflyer size and BNF (Bind and Fly) plane from Horizon Hobby range of planes such as E-flite. Very popular on micro indoor BNF model.

Frsky TARANIS: Very popular for long range FPV flight, drones development, open source mods or scale model flying near urban area due to solid radio range/resistance to interference.

I fly Futaba on my bigger quadcopters and spektrum on my smaller bnf models. Xl-racing gives a great description on the radios he mentioned.
