All the FrSky FASST receivers will link to either 7Ch, or MultiMode. I can't say if they actually give you 2048, and doubt that most of us could tell either, but the big benefit of having the ability to have user settable F/S settings on all channels, a biggie for sailplane pilots.
I would also make note of the fact that the 8 channel FrSky (their oldest model) requires that you disable the F/S in the transmitter and set your F/S settings ala Spektrum, unless you absolutely need 8 channels, I would avoid that model.

The failsafe on older frsky (orange) work on all channel. I always give a little bit on elevator so the plane wont go nosedive in case of a signal lost and on benchtest the elevator also work on failsafe.

Update on the 8 channel FrSkys
The new TFR8S replaces the original TFR8. The new TFR8S does allow the use of the transmitter based F/S settings

Check these guys out, who needs Hobby-Kong
Just for shuetz und giggles I dropped one in the shopping cart to check out the shipping, only $2.80 to mail one to you first class mail.
Value Hobby is where I buy my lipos, so they're a good choice as well. Their shipping is a flat rate of 3.99 on "stuff", but more on ARF's naturally.

Is there a way to upgrade the firmware on your old receivers to the (S) firmware. Or do we just toss the old receivers. I have one if the first ones and it has slight throttle glitches even though I turned off FS in the transmitter.

I second thatů for some reason I got it done but I don't want to copy a model, I want to start from scratch and it just doesn't click with me either.

OK, OK… found post 211. Thanks Vespa for reminding me to search, but since there was no smiley it seems you were a bit blunt about it.

Look in the menus for something about dual rates. Fill in the menus until you get desired results.

So, you can swallow a 808? I mean if the ones that are in acceptable health risk levels?

I am a newly convert from spektrum dx8 to the 8fg. This radio is nice love the functionality of it. I know that expo is just reverse of spektrum/JR but are the values a direct port, such is 30% expo giving the same feel between the 2? I've heard that futaba requires a higher number to what spektrum uses. I know just fly it and see how it feels, but would like to get close before as this is in a fast jet.

Thanks
