I have a few R/C vehicles: 1 nitro car, 3 Planes, and 1 Heli. To run a lot of them I have a DX7 controller. It seems to be a very good remote for the price and what I am doing. Here is a couple pictures of the Heli that I got for Xmas. It is a Blade mSR. I am able to use the DX7 with it and I think that it works a lot better than the stock controller.
