72Mhz because
A) He's on a budget
B) The Spektrum gear is going to lock him out at far less than 3000ft and
C) If you read carefully, he doesn't know a lot about video transmission, and in general seems rather new to RC in general (no offense). The last thing he needs is to spend every last penny he has on a $1000 plane then fly it further than his experience dictates he should and lose everything.

and as a bonus:
D) He can use a module based 72Mhz radio and add UHF to it later, he's not going to use that DX6i with a UHF TX, at least I don't know of anyone else that does.

Like Geminiryan said: "Baby steps".

Get a simple setup, learn as you grow and have fun. Having said that, some people jump in at the deep end of the pool and manage to pull it off. I'm just trying to give a different perspective.
