I'll chime in..
I think some of the results will be a bit skewed in this pole as Aeaejr is cross posting in specific make threads. I found this thread when he posted in a FrSky topic.
You will not see the most popular radio system show up much in this thread due to the full house requirement. Spektrum out numbers all other makes by a large degree, but only recently added the ability to feed a full house glider.
Also, I think it will be harder for Aeaejr to find the big 4 users as they are less likely to frequent brand threads.
But back on topic, I'm on Futaba with a FrSky module. I love them. No issues. You get very good range and the best thing ever, RSSI for safety. RSSI warns me if their is a reception issue before loosing any commands. I also like that FrSky has 3 different fail safe options I can pick from.
When FrSky comes out with their new transmitters I will be jumping into them. 16 channels, model match, audio alarms, full telemetry, powerful ARM processor with plenty of storage, open source software, USB, SD slot, etc. All for a very reasonable price. I think it will be the new powerhouse but at a fraction of the cost of the big guys.
