Futaba 14FG

Before you respond, I want a radio in excellent condition, but at a good price. If I wanted to pay for a new one I would order one.

May trade my 8FG Super for a good deal.

Didn't these just started shipping last week? I doubt you will find anybody who wants to part with one for a discount. But if you did, let me know!

One can always hope. I did not know that they just started shipping. Maybe I will get lucky. Got one on order just in case.

I would think that is the only way you will get one. Many of us have waited three months for this to come available, myself included. You would have to offer quite a bit more than what I paid to get it out of my hands.

have they actually shipped?

I've been waiting a long time - and Tower was supposed to send me an email alert...
Site says "Late Feb" as in stock

I received mine last week. The first batch has shipped. Looks everyone got one that had ordered early on.

these just came out

I would goto my lhs and hold one
I put one in my hands today and was very disappointed, gimbals felt cheap

and over all I think the 8fg feels better in my hands
all the 14sg is, is a updated 8fg, take away telemetry and sbus programming and its a 8fg with more 3 pos switches

That is interesting. Wish my LHS carried one, to hold. They stopped carrying Futaba about a year ago.

I would sure like to hear from other 14SG owners as to their thoughts on the feel.. and maybe a comparison with other radios.. I would have thought the feel would have been better, with the competition this radio was intended for.

I think if you loosen up the stick tension and loose the throttle ratchet you will feel different about it.

I had a DX8 once, and still have my DX18. That is not good if you think the DX8 feels better. I always had trouble getting used to the DX8 after using a 11X and DX18

That's he's opinion, I have a DX8 seatting here next to the 14SG, and I can tell you the feel of the sticks on the 14SG is like the 12FG super smooth compared to the DX8.

Compared to the 8FG, software is about the same with telemetry and servo slow and S.Bus added to the 14SG, the sticks are better on the 14SG. Add to that a new form factor with bigger screen, rubber grips, new nav buttons, and wider switch spacing, compatibility with all of Futaba's protocols (S-FHSS, FASST, FASSTest), output jack for headphones to use with audio prompts, vibration alerts, and expanded model memory.

Hope that helps!
Doug.
