At least they are using the acronym in the accepted way (FHSS has always meant "frequency hopping spread spectrum")
There's also S-FHSS, although I can't really determine what exactly the difference is between FHSS and S-FHSS, perhaps one of them is for park flyers.
I wouldn't put too much stock in the name FHSS meaning that the modulation is actually FHSS. After all Hitec called their technology "AFHSS" and it's definitely DSSS (as well as being "adaptive" only in the loosest sense of the word). If Futaba's FHSS is true FHSS, I'd be curious about its performance at significant range (that may be why it is relegated to the "economy" market).
