Change of plan! Futaba time ..;-)

After ordering two of the five channel Hitech (knock off) nano receivers for this size plane, I went and sold my radio, and bought a Futaba 8FG super.

Now I need to figure out what receiver to use for FASST.. Futaba has a five channel with four mini pico connectors, and one full-size connector for the ESC, but that receiver seems a bit heavy, even with the case removed.

The four channel indoor futaba RX seems like it will work? Futaba Lists it as 3.5 ounce with the case. I can probably cut that weight in half by removing the case.

Unfortunately I have to use a Y-connector for the ailerons, and full size servo connects.
