I like JR radio equipment. 9303 with 8311 servo's. Don't waste your time and money on cheap servo's. Standard servo's that come with the 9303 are 811's they are OK, but it isn't long before there is so much play that you will be rebuilding them every other week even in a .50 size ship.

Futaba is perfectly fine. You can read hundereds of post on this same question. Just look back a few pages and you will find all the info you want.

I don't think there are any junk gassers ... they are probably gone by now.

Try the gasser forum also.

as I see it 9252 servo's 601 or new virsion 611 gyro
If you are going 90 size motor the ys seams to be more reliable but the os has more power if you go os you should research some they are coming out with a new one soon I am using a os 70 and having good luck I just bought a carbon max and I am still trying to decide what engin to get stearing towards ys I have 9202 in the 70 and they seam to do a great job but I think I will go with the 9252 in the 90 they are digital and a little more powerful

Here's an example for a gasser...
My ship: Predator Carbon SE w/ Zenoah 231 and the "Agrav8" upgrades that come with the kit from Rick's...ie 720mm carbon mains, 115 carbon tail blades, metal A-arm

-Tx: Futaba 9CHPS
-Rx: Futaba 149DP
-Servos: JR8311...cyclic
JR8417...throttle
Futaba 9251...rudder...comes w/ the 601 gyro
-Gyro: Futaba 601 setup
-Governor: Futaba GV1 w/ Stator Gator

-Raja's gen kit w/ custom carbon bracket for the electrics
-O'Neill Bros Racing UFO air filter
-All push/pull rods (except the throttle and rudder)changed out to titanium turnbuckles...easier to tweak.

In the hangar waiting for the time/crash to upgrade:
-Toxic Racing modded 231 w/ 257 carb
-Century all metal head
-Century metal tail gear box and HD boom

My recommendations for a .90 3D machine...carbon frame kit, OS .91 SX-H-C Spec w/ pump (I have no experience w/ this motor but it seems to be bad A$$), servos as listed above, Futaba 611 or 601 gyro setup, GV1, PCM heli radio of your choice, metal A-arm, and (if you don't go with the carbon frames) the front rudder servo mount kit.
