Do you have a Transmitter allready and just need servos and a receiver?

if your answer isyes then try Tower Hobbies they have flight packs thats come with 3 hitec HS-55 servos with a Electron 6 reciever.you can purcase another servo (if you need 4) for about $20 more dollers the flight pack is around $99.00

I use this stuff everyday works great.

Oh,well thats going to be more.So you want everything but you want a micro system right? I have never seen anyone sell a TX and a micro system.Maybe a optic 6 radio there around 150 I think but I dont think you will find everything for under the prince your looking for.

Well I know of some that do!

Here is what I recommend:
www.servocity.com
Look at the Hitec Flash 5 systems - you can custom configure what equipment it comes with!
If you can spend just a bit more look at the Optic 6 systems.

Really try to keep with the computerized systems as they will grow with you as you get more planes and stuff!

If your budge is fixed at $120 you will have to look at the laser systems.

Hobby lobby sells micro flight systems as well:
http://www.hobby-lobby.com/hitec.htm

Make sure you call Servo city to order. Make sure they have stock (their site isn't always the best at showing in or out of stock situations)!

but was it with micro servos and receiver? Most systems come with standard stuff.but as rcers pointed out looks like you can get custom systems.I didnt knwo that thanks rcers for the info.Your looking for what people use.My self I really like Hitec.As I have the old Hitec Prisam Radio and my father has thenew Hitec Eclipse both are great radios but the Eclipse is a $210+ radio with the sysenzer in it.

Looks like a good site you can choose standard or micro systems. Plus a few diff types of each servo which will make the price go up or down depending on which servos you choose from.

but was it with micro servos and receiver? No it wasn't, but that can be purchased separately.

I have seen the New Optic 6 with Spectra selling for as little as $139! Yow! Great deal.

Look around there are plenty of deals.

Whats better, the Futaba 7CAP or the HiTec Eclipse 7? Will the Hitec do the CCPM on heli's?

I would check out futaba-rc.com for info on that radio and servocity.com for info on the hitec radio but yes it looks like the hitec would work well for helis to.

The Futaba 7CHP is better suited for helis... has same programming ability as 7cAP, but defaults to the heli menus and has two switches swapped for easier use with helis and the throttle stick has no detents (smooth action) better suited for helis.
