Dax Aloft hobby is awesome company. Good prices and first class is fairly cheap. I have their 8ch receiver for my Futaba 8fg on my helicopter. Very nice just apply tape or ca to the box. Other then that. Frsky is the best Fasst compatible company. I'm happy with Frsky product.

I like this stand because is not hold with screw. Just some rubber band similar to the one in prop saver. Also a good fit on the 7c that can not use regular stand

Thanks. I just orderend the Futaba case and I fly with a transmitter tray like this one. I made mine but I did order their gel filled neck strap which is great; comfortable, unobstructed view of the radio display and perfect balance. Mine does not extend beyond the transmitter handle so I am hopefully okay.

Horizon sells a Trainer Cord that has JR/Spektrum connectors on one end and JR/Spektrum/Futaba connectors on the other.

We have used them, occasionally, to use JR/Spektrum masters with Futaba slaves.

I'm not sure you will have a lot of luck with a JR slave on a Futaba master (but I have been wrong in the past). However, what you can do with a small investment is to acquire a dedicated "buddy box" using these two pieces:

Trainer Cord: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Futaba-T...#ht_873wt_1762

Buddy Box: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brand-new-Fu...#ht_500wt_1156

I have used this for a long time with great success. Search back through the thread, I have posted several times on the nuances of this setup.

Has anyone tried using one of these balancers on their 8FG? I was curious how you like it and does it help keep it level on your stomach. I go back and forth with a tray to the neckstrap. I love how secure you transmitter is with a tray and how you have an unobscured view of your display but it's a little harder to tak on and off between flights.
