Need help with a new Radio system

Recently I've been building myself my first plane. I plan on it it being an FPV foamie flyer but the radio system I have right now seems extremely weak. I've been looking around and haven't been able to find range estimations on any of the radios. Currently I'm looking at this: http://www.futaba-rc.com/systems/futk40.html

If you could estimate the range on this radio I would be very grateful. Also if anyone knows of a cheap (under $150) radio system including a receiver with good range and not 2.4g (thats the frequency of my FPV system) that would also be helpful!

Thanks-A beginner to RC planes

Other than being the Futaba brand..... that radio has no redeeming qualities.

Who told you 2.4 could not co-exist with 2.4 FPV transmitters?

Just when I thought I was out...they pull me back in. (0 min 6 sec)

Hmm I didn't know about "scan mode". Any tips on a good non-exspensive system with this feature?
