Default Recommendations for transmitters with 3 position switches?

I have used flysky transmitters with great success. I would like to upgrade for new models and Iím tired of using a separate winch controller. I need at least 4 channels.

Whatís a multi-model transmitter that folks are liking these days? Donít need any fancy deals, just a 3 position switch and hopefully not receivers that cost 80 bucks a pop.

(My VS4-10 needs a new transmitter that I can actually read in the sun - which is not the flysky and my servo winch needs more seamless control).

Thanks all!

I got the Radiolink RC4GS, about 50$ and 4 channels.
The receivers are dirt cheap as well.

I picked up a spektrum dx5c about a year ago and I like it a lot. All the settings you could want, light and comfortable in your hand, only uses 4aa batteries. The 5 channel receivers are $60 but if you don’t need that many channels you can use a receiver with however many channels you need. I have a savage flux that only needs 2 channels and it was $30.

I should know this since I have one, but I don't because I've barely used it. Does the GT5 have a 3 position switch?
