Your budget is too low to get seven channels AND telemetry.

The only one that comes close is the Turnigy 9XR Pro:

Transmitter $100
FrSky DJT module and receiver $60
Battery $10
Plus whatever sensors you need
Plus shipping
Say $200

You could also go for the FlySky 9x:

Transmitter $65-90
FrSky Module and receiver $60
Battery $10
Plus sensors
Plus shipping

You would need to install a programmer to allow the firmware to be updated to ErSky9x.

when you say full telemetry, what information do you require, mah, amps, vario etc etc but I don't think you'd get anything for 100 in the UK, unless you look on the 2nd hand market (try BMFA classifieds)

I'd also be wary of buying direct from the Far East as you will be the importer and responsible for making sure the system complies with the latest European regs (plus you might get stung for the tax and tax collection fee)

Hi thanks. I think I would like some telemetry on the batteries voltage and that's about it!

The Hitec Flash7 can do that but cost more:

If you can bump up your budget by $40 to $50 you get better options to choose from.

I strongly suggest you define what "full telemetry" means. Some of these systems can have telemetry options that cost more that your budget for the original radio/receiver.

All I'm really looking for in terms of telemetry is the batteries voltage. Hopefully the speed of the aircraft as well

If you are going to buy new then you'd need to stretch your budget to achieve that, the most cost effective option would probably be a Taranis which would be around 149 for the tx, 25 for the Rx, 12 for the voltage sensor (assuming you mean the flight pack voltage and not the Rx supply voltage which is measured by the Rx) and 25 for a GPS sensor to get speed, so around 210 total. Other 7 channel options would be the New Spectrum Dx7, Multiplex Cockpit Sx, Hitec Flash 7, etc but these would all come to more than the above.

You could always contact T9 Hobbysport and explain what you want http://www.t9hobbysport.com/
