That depends on where you are going with the hobby. If you have the bug, buy the best computer Tx with the most model memories you can afford - otherwise just buy a cheap combo from HK.. The Spektrum Dx7s is a not over the top example. I'm less familiar with the Futaba range, but really rate my 8FG. I would say both these are mid range radios, and capble of giving you on many years of service without being outgrown.
Go visit the radios
forum - you'll get heaps more info and opinions over there, including on cheaper but more user modifiable options.
