Which radio to use for joystick/telemetry

I’m upgrading to a pixhawk from an APM 2.6.

I’m trying to decide which radios to use for telemetry groundstation and possibly control via joystick.

I heard that xbees are too slow for joystick control, so I was considering wifi to my macbook. Or an external wifi reciever to get the telemetry to my macbook.

I would like to have decent range. I am also considering using the wifi card that the solo uses.

Any suggestions?
