Beginner on a budget: ICG180 , or HLG200 for an introduction to Heading Lock. Hand adjustable pot, so no need for an auxiliary gyro gain channel on the transmitter
Beginner with ambition: SL310 for easy use, Quick Setup and the advantages of both modes.
Starting aerobatics with IC or Gasser models: SL630, SL560 or SL420  for fast pirouettes and sharp stops
Small Electric models: the SL630 or SL420e designed for T-Rex 450 size machines
ClubCompetition: SL560 or SL720 for high performance and customisable settings
