Those wings keep looking better and better!

Go Futaba, I'm flying a clone of their systems and its been problem free. The FG8 is really a 12 channel radio, so very powerful. The aurora9 looks nice but seems bulky (I haven't seen one in person so take that for a grain of salt). It would probably be worth waiting for Futaba's telemetry system before buying anything at this point.

For reference I haven't had any issues with Spektrum DSM2 but my one tough install (UAS) has 2 remote receivers and my other setups (AR6110e and AR7000) are on Trex 450's that don't get much flight time and when they do its no more than 100 feet out usually. None of these aircraft are flown in contest environments where signal strength matters. I was scared enough by reports similar to yours that I went FrSky in my DLG's and don't regret my choice one bit.
