My opinion Lucky Bob's has the nicest HO controller.

Controller power and features really depend on the cars you use on it.  Kind of a poor investment to buy $300+ controllers to run T-jets....$100+ HO cars to race - maybe.

Carsteen, Difalco

Have use these brands for every scale 1/24, 1/32, HO.
Versatile and reliable, never blew up the Carsteen, tried my best several times but to no avail. The Difalco plugin circuit board allow sensitivity adjustment, and if you do blow it, you can fix it yourself.

Have used many brands, but for me, I race all scales, Carsteen and Difalco works best.
