Where do you come up with "new" 8FG. This new T8J looks more like an eventual replacement for the 7C price slot. No sliders, only one proportional knob and only 8 channels. More than a little step down from the 8FG.
Has someone from Futaba actually told you that the 8Fg won't get an S-FHSS update, or are you making an assumption based on seeing a new 8 channel model from Futaba
Thanks for the heads up, looks interesting.
