I suggest you get at least 8 channel radio. Most modern flybarless systems use channel 8 for rescue function.

You can setup rescue with 6 or 7 channels, but it becomes a bit more complicated and restrictive

Maybe do yourself a favor and look at frsky radios, cheaper and very reliable, you can also add a multi protocol module and fly virtually any brand rx, their oem rx's are well priced as well.
Disclaimer I haven't ever used one, was about to buy one but ended being given an ix12 in a swop deal so abandoned it for now. However if I were to buy again am quite certain thats the route I would have taken. Also it can do fbl integration, barring vbar I think.

Hi

Speak to Al or Juanita at Al's Hobbies they will be able to help with the right radio, I fly with Futaba but the only problem is that if use OEM equipment the Receivers are dam expensive.
