Hey now,
Ok, here's the thing. "best brand" will get a lott of heated discussion. Everybody has their loyalties. I'll say Multiplex, another person will say JR. Still another will claim Futaba and so on. They're all pretty good. Worst? Maybe we could tell you that. It doesn't even matter much at all whether sailplanes, helis, or fixedwing power. What matters more is what brand have you been doing, what your flying buddies are using, and if you want to play with a particular brand of ultra micro models.
First, if you've been flying say, Spectrum and have several of their recievers then you'd want to be able to keep using them. So buy Spectrum or JR. As they're comparable. If you've been using Futaba, Sectrum recievers won't work. So you're better off staying with Futaba. See what I'm saying? Good.

If you don't have a bunch of recievers already you may want to stick with the brand comon to your crowd. That way if you run into trouble with programming or set up, your buddies can help because they know that system.

Of course if you've got a thing for the nifty Horion ultra micro models then youll need comparable gear so but Spectrum or JR. Get it? Cool.

That pretty much covers the practical side of things.
