The 8J that I bought was the airplane version and comes with the R2008SB or something like that, I think I got the name right. It's more than the Edge needs, but it'll do the trick

FHSS receivers are $50. That's actually not bad, I paid more for my DSMX AR600...

I do both.
For my PZ UM sukhoi, I went to a hobbytown USA. I bought my UM cosair online. my UM t-28 was given to me. I bought my UM mig 15 online befre my LHS got it in stock. My big PZ corsair was given to me.

my LHS is great. It has fast shipping so I can have a part the next day without having to go there as well.
www.gravesrc.com
storefront is really good, staff knows their stuff. I bought an MCX2 and RF5.5 there back in 2010, and that started my RC obsession... More recently they had a swap meet and I bought a used 3DHS vyper that the guy said was once owned by Doc Austin, that didn't go too well though...
Evey time I need parts for something I buy from there. beats waiting two weeks to get something from tower, or two months to get something from HK

I've heard you program it anyways so that it isn't on constantly while you're flying... yeah blue would be sweet, but red or green would be cool too.
