The Hitec Eclipse 7 is reasonablely priced, does CCPM, and works well. I've been using mine now about 2 years and it works just fine.

I have a Hitech Eclipse 7 with the Spectra module and it's a fantastic radio. For the price, the features are second to none. This radio will be part of my collection for many years, but..., I wish I had a couple more channels. So if I was starting over I would have bought a Futaba 9CHP Super with the synth. module. http://www.futaba-rc.com/radios/futk75.html

Eclipse7

Been using it for about 3.5 years now to fly my micros, Ecos, Logos, and now Fury Ion!! It has everything you need for a great price . Mine's getting a little old now but still works perfect. My next radio will probably be a Futaba 9CH for variety and extra features.

I have a JR PCM 9X which is like a slightly down-rated 9303. I'm told the software is upgradeable to ver II which is the same as a 9303.

I love it.

i like the futaba 6ch T6XA comp. radio, which i got for $60 shipped works great for basic stuff but is a little outdated......you'll find good steals and it does planes/FP choppers fine.

Hitec Optic 6...5 point Throttle and pitch curves, works great, easy to program and with the spectra module you can change freqs in seconds without having to carry extra crystals. Also fairly cheap.
