I have received my first bixler plane in the mail, and now in the process of researching radios. I am wondering what type of radio would be the best to buy? i am also in need of a battery, i was thinking of going with a 2200mAh.

About Me:
I am a mid 30s male and I have been interested in electronics since i got my first cell phone. I would classify myself as a novice when it comes to this stuff, but on the other hand it only peaks my interest even more
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I read an article in wired magazine and I became very interested when I learned that there are people out there that have the interests I do. The possibilities are endless!
