If you are serious about scale, the more channels the better.

JR: 9503 (9 ch), 11X (11 ch), 12X (12 ch)

Spectrum: DX8 (8 ch) or DX18 (18 ch although only the first 12 are proportional, the rest are for accessories)

You get the drift, Futaba has radios up to 18 channels, Airtronics and Hitec have 10 and 7 channel radios. Yes, you can do a lot with Y cords, but nothing makes programming easier than a servo/channel per surface.

I suggest you save your pennies and buy the best, highest capability radio you can.
