Be careful with the infrared ones. The remote turns on my TV all the time. ><

@jwildman16: best bet is to go to your local hobby store and give them your price range and experience level. they should be able to match you up with a good model.

No question that RF is the way to go.. infrared is just more cost effective.. just doesn't work as well.

@carl669: Thanks! That one looks pretty sweet. Looking at the reviews, it seems that with a few minor adjustments, you can fly it a lot more reliably.

Anyone have other RF models you've had success with?

Okay, so RF - What price range am I looking at for one that's not tiny?

RF is the way to go. IR has problems in very bright sunlight, has range problems, and cannot go behind objects.
