Futaba model questions
Been out of RC flying since the late 80's... just got back into it 2 years ago and now I'm expanding. My question: Futaba... what do the model numbers mean? Example: 10CAG, 10CHG, 10CG, T10CAP, 12FGH.
I can probably assume anything with an "H" is for Heli, and "A" for airplane and "C" for Channel. Not sure what "G", "P" amd "F" stand for. Thanks in advance.

10 is the number of channels
C means computer radio
H and A are heli and airplane as you suspected
P or F are PCM or FM (really PPM) (though any PCM radio will do PPM modulation as well)
Not sure about the G though my suspicion would be 2.4g?

Actually, other than the "A" and "H" for "Airplane" and "Heli", and the "F" or "P" for ones that came with an FM-PPM or FM-PCM receiver, the other letters are more for Futaba's internal designations. The "C" doesn't mean "Computer", because computer transmitters are the 5U, 7U, 8U, 9C, 10C, 9Z, 14MZ, 12FG, 12Z, 18MZ, 8FG, and now the 14SG. It's really not something to be concerned about, and we don't know either. We just accept them as model numbers.
