What to do...Old HoneyBee issue

The transmitter for my beloved Honeybee seems to have had a serious failure. While I have not opened it up to repair it, replacement seems imminent. Checking around it seems I have a few options. First, buy a new Esky transmitter, nearly $50. Second, buy a low dollar TX/RX setup and boggle the new receiver into the existing 4in1. As the Honeybee has taken its share of abuse, perhaps better spent money would be to replace it with a completely new 250-sized setup. Something that would take some research. The other idea that I'm kicking around is biting the bullet and buying a 450 sized heli. Either jump right in and buy an Trex package, or build an HK kit.

Any thoughts from the pros on the best bang for the buck?

There is available an E-Flite 3in1, EFLH-1031 3x1, that can then be attached to any receiver to replace the Esky 4in1. It's been quite some time since I bought one, but I think it was about $35 USD three or four years ago.

EFLH1031 also allows--though does not require--use of 11.1V battery. But it prices at $45 and the wisdom of throwing that PLUS another radioset at a HBFP is questionable. A LOT has changed in 5 years.
