The generic AM radios that come with most RTR kits are not the best and replacing with something bette is a good idea if you plan to stick with the hobby. Using Lipos has no impact on which radio you use so don't worry.

I use a Spektrum DX3S. There are many great radios out there and it's just a matter of finding something in your price range with the features you want. The steering servo and ESC in your RC18T will still work fine with a new radio.

I agree what comes with most rtr's are not the best, maybe for the novice but for us that love this hobby something better then what you have now is always better.
