It will definately do FASSTest and FASST. Only rumour that it is S-FHSS as well but that will be confirmed at launch.
I think it will for the following reasons:
1. Futaba want to keep FrSKY FASST compatible clients in the Futaba camp and 18MZ is too expensive for most while sport flyers are looking for low sot as well as features. The 14SG would plug the gap between 8J and 18MZ nicely
2. It will enable the 14SG to be compatible with Futaba Transmitter Ready (FTR) which is to be rolled out in 2013 (not to be confused with Hobbico TX-R), again offering a more cost effective alternative to the 18MZ in this market and an upgrade path from the 8J.
3) Futaba's marketing direction is extreme flexibility and fewer Tx and Rx models.
