You can't go wrong with this.

I felt that the instructions were a little foggy, but other than that I purchased a solid transmitter and receiver combo.

Mode 2 is considered to be a much easier configuration to learn on for right handed flyers.

This system came with a ParkZone RC F4U Corsair that I purchased back in June. I am very pleased with it. It has been very dependable, with very good range. There really isn't much to say about an RC transmitter and receiver, except that it seems to be of good quality, it's comfortable to hold for long periods of flying and the sticks are "light", smooth and easy to move, causing little to no fatigue. I have heard of these radios dropping signal and causing your airplane or helicopter to sail off on it's own adventure and/or crash. I can't say that could never happen, but I can say that has never happened with mine. I think it is a good system at a great price!

What is Mode 2 or "MD2":
The radio is set up for MD2 or "mode 2" pilots, which means the left stick is throttle/power and rudder, while the right stick is levator and aileron. Mode 1 radios would basically be the opposite. Modes 2 is the most common radio configuration for leisure and sport flyers in the United States, but mode 1 is generally most popular everywhere else in the world. Mode 2 is considered to be a much easier configuration to learn on for right handed flyers. Left handed flyers may find mode 2 more difficult, and wish to consider the mode 1 version of this radio, but that boils down to personal preference.

Never buy anything on the judgment of one reviewer. As with all my reviews, the above is only my opinion or observation of an item that I own or have tested. Consider that it is possible that I may have either purchased/tested a faulty unit or an exceptionally good one. Your experience may differ from mine, better or worse. Paying attention to the up or down trend from several reviewers will help you make an educated decision on whether or not the item is for you.
Best of Luck!!

This Spektrum set is a perfect first rc set! It may even be some people's one and only set needed! With the 5 channel transmitter (TX, or the controller), you can control mostly all planes and intermediate (and below) helicopters that require you provide your own TX/RX. Of course I'm not gonna test the durability of the controller, but the receiver has already taken a few crashes with no problems! Everything is built well, so it should be able to last a long time.
Spektrum is one of the main brands when it comes to controllers, and it's not just a name. You can't go wrong with this. As an added benefit, you can get the Phoenix RC flight sim and this controller works seamlessly!

Good for the price, used with a coaxial rotor helicopter and with a "footy" sailboat. Tested good reach with the sailboat.

I bought the DX5e from eBay in 2011. It was a good price at under 100.00. I used it to fly my trainer 3 times. Put it on the shelf for a while. Came back to the hobby last year. Sitting on the shelf the transmitter had died. It would not bind with any receiver. The antenna circuit was dead. Out of warranty because I waited too long after the last flight. Foolishly replaced it with the same model since I had several receivers. Just yesterday I used it in my brand new Freewing Focke-Wulf's maiden flight. Everything checked out, range check OK, all control surfaces working. The aircraft performed beautifully - for 45 seconds - then the motor cut and the plane nosed over and spiraled into the ground exploding on impact. The cause was that the receiver, brand new out of the box, had died not 1 minute into its first use. I had used it for maybe 10 minutes testing the model prior to flight. This time it is under warranty but I am so disgusted I am just tossing it in the garbage and getting a Futaba instead.
