The point is that from the consumer's perspective it generates great confusion, places barriers to migration between Tx and adds cost for no benefit. The whole marketing strategy flies in the face of what users want and hands a significant advantage to those other brands that offer universal compatibility across Tx and Rx. Sure, some offer special features in some combinations, but generally all Tx work with all Rx for basic operation.

Who is even clear on the differences between FHSS and S-FHSS or FASST 7ch, FASST muilti-I and FASST multi-II ? I bet only a few Futaba representatives and the most ardent fans. Certainly the LHS and bulk of consumers are unlikely to know or keep it straight.

IMO Futaba are betting on brand loyalty, quality reputation and a baffle-em-with-bulls*** approach that is unlikley to serve them well.
