Help selecting receivers and transmitters for quad rotor

My senior design group has decided to build a quad rotor.
It's going to be used in the future as a learning tool for Controls and Mechatronics courses. We are trying to determine what the best transmitter and receiver combo are.

We are looking for a receiver that plugs into a computer and has a nice user interface. We have about $3000 to buy all the components and we can't really buy a kit as it would defeat the purpose of the "design" aspect of senior project.

I'm looking for any information about receivers and transmitters for quad rotors that are available for purchase. Is one place to go to find all the available products and their features?

When received, take out the built in 9X module and throw it away, then replace with the DJT transmitter module + use D8R as receiver. Buy more additional receivers as required.

It has a nice telemetry configuration app,

I'm not really sure what else do you mean by "must connect to computer", all the outputs are standard PWM, on 8 channels + low-speed serial link for telemetry.

Yes, of course.
D8R/D8RII have ppm out firmware, download from frsky.
D4FR has PPM out by shorting channel 3/4.

Thanks for the reply timecop. I think my group is going with the Hitec Aurora 9. It got good reviews and has nifty touch screen feature.
