2.4Ghz is legal for Surface & air in the UK, just don't but the cheapest you can find!

Just avoid the ones with "Park Flyer" on the receiver label.  They are designed to be very short range, OK for flying in restricted spaces, less so sailing on an outdoor lake.  A good basic outfit can be had for under 25, but much less than that will indicate that too many corners have been cut.
