    I have a Polk, but since its practically a antique I would like to get a back-up. I was able to score a synthesized 75 FM Module (yay, no crystals) so what would you guys suggest, a Futaba older metal cased gold transmitter, or a more recent , yet still older computerized Futaba to slap the module into.??

    Thanks in advance for any help

    I'd go with something computerized, as they provide more flexibility.

        I know I might be considered to be tooting my own horn, but I love the VEX radios. 6 channels and full computerized functionality. Can't go wrong for the price. I've used them in four of my last builds and they work great.

          Get an open RC set. Totally flexible, assign any control to any channel, mix any channel with any other etc. etc.

          You will need to mount your own aerial though- these newer sets are designed with 2.4ghz modules in mind, but will work with older kit with some minor mods.

          great set for the money- Turnigy 9XR pro
          More expensive, but awesome set- Frsky Taranis
