Well, consider this. The R6108SB receiver that apparently is shipping now with the 8FG radio is capable of up to 16 channels, yeah think
I get a feeling that Futaba has some nice goodies coming soon
Telemetry, and other good stuff

If I had them, I'd find ways to use them...

One of these days (years) I want to build a scale F-22. With gyros and some scale effects, that could easily use 16+ channels.

Lets see:

Ch1: Elevator 1
Ch2: Elevator 2
Ch3: Rudder
Ch4: Aileron 1
Ch5: Aileron 2
Ch6: Throttle
Ch7: Flaps 1
Ch8: Flaps 2
Ch9: Landing gear
Ch10: Spoiler
Ch11: Wheel brakes
Ch12: 3-position switch engine aux ( shutdown, standby & smoke option),
Ch13: Rx Voltage monitor
Ch14: Rx Backup power supply

You can also use extra channels for bombs/bomb bay doors, gear/gear door sequencing, scale details like pilot heads, canopies, pop-out ladders, folding wings, etc.

Hi,

I know that this is an old thread. I think that now that the 8FG has became a 14 channel transmitter, 14MZ, 12Z and 12FG will be updated to 16 channel. Also looking forward for telemetry.

Regards

If you own an 8FG you can get a 14-channel transmitter for FREE by just installing V3 firmware. It just doesn’t get any better than that. Way to go Futaba.

I heard that Futaba will soon present a 16MZ with 16 channels and integrated telemetry.
