I would take a look at the UHF systems available. There are popular ones such as DragonLink, EzUHF and Thomas Scherrer LRS.

They use (if I remember correctly) 433MHz and can have range up to 20km+.

Basically you just install it to a tx such as the Futaba, Turnigy 9x etc.

I hope this message helps, I'm new to this sport

You can get that sort of range with a 35mhz or 72mhz system with an antenna mod to the receiver. Personally though i`d use a UHF system with no mods and much much futher range ( max ranges recorded are increasing weekly, i think its 47km now ? ) Or more to the point rock solid performance for the range you require
