I hope Futaba will not use the tiny special connectors on the new rx. like the one on the R616FFM again!!

No. It's ordinary connector.

There is also available with longer cable for carbon fiber planes when you can put antenna out of the plane.

I heard about that before, someone said there is a kit with longer antenna wires to replace the original antennae. I ask that on the Futaba 2.4GHZ forum and there is no such kit.

Call hobby services, the part number is HSP79766 ANT 400MM, all it takes is about 5 minutes to replace them. I've seen people using this antennas for over a year now, on gliders, boats and jets.

Receivers


Sure would be nice if Futaba would come out with a 2.4 Full Range 4 channel receiver for around $50.00 with standard connectors. I would buy 5 or 6 of them!!!

Why is it called FG? Futaba wants to resurrect the old gold box I still have around the house? Do they want to make it Futaba Golden series?

Wow...looks like Futaba is finally getting serious. Nice to see a 'clean sheet' design for a change.

No advanced sailplane functions and no sliders on the upper sides makes this a no-go for me unfortunately.

Yes, that's the only place. Or maybe your LHS can get them for you.

I like it! the 'G" is for Gigahertz I think. More info (in German) here:
http://www.hobbydirekt.de/Robbe/Fern...5::156784.html

Receivers still too expensive though....TX too, almost as expensive as the T10 in EU. Does have the programming like T12/T14...
