I would go for a well known controller for a first project just because you can find a lot of tutorials online and get a lot of help in forums like this one. If you need many channels I would go for and spectrum dx8 or a Futaba 8JA 2.4GHZ S/FHSS. This is my advice but I'm just a guy after all is your robot so you get to choose.

I use FS-CT6B, it's cheap has 6 channels (2 sticks and 2 pots) and you get software you can program/tweak it with.
I have 3 RC planes and one small car with Rx for this and use those 2 pots and/or sticks to control additional functions.
Cheap and easy, good for starters.
