In the past 30 years I've owned many transmitters and radio controllers. And for me, I believe the Airtronics MT4 (also known as Sanwa) is the best value you can buy. It fits my hand like a glove and is very responsive, giving me a good feel and "connectivity" with my rc cars. Even my 10 year old daughter loves it, so now we both have matching Airtronics MT-4 controllers.
Here are some of its best features:
As to real world performance, here's a short story. I bought the Aitronics MT4 just days before I was to fly to Singapore to compete in the 2011 Tamiya Asia Cup finals. I was racing in the tricky Tamiya F104 Formula One class, where there were 4 past champions in the line up. Despite being unfamiliar with this new controller, I managed 2nd place overall, my very best performance in the TAC Asia finals. And I believe the controller made a big difference.

So if you are looking for a cheap radio control unit, I highly recommend the Sanwa MT4. It's simply my favorite.
