JR 11x with Hobbico FASST module


At the moment I use three transmitters, DSM, FASST and FPV, I ve got my self an 11x so I can ditch the rest and just use one that I'm familiar with.

I'd like to keep FASST receivers so picked up a Hobbico module, it seems to work ok but the pin sockets are recessed in the module and the pins only go in a small bit. Is anyone else using this combo and is it a good idea or not.

Why labelled Hobbico? If FASST, aren't they Futaba ?

Thanks, good to know. I much prefer JR transmitters, just not keen on DSM

Mine is actually re badged as Ripmax, they are not Futaba, just copy their system, bit like the FRSky FASST receivers.

I assumed you being in the UK, but why do you think they are not Futaba?

These modules are not copies.

They are made by Futaba for Ripmax, Robbe or Hobbico.

It must be nice to be able to get the modular 11X, instead of the permanently DSM crippled bodge that Horizon is shoving down the throats of the US customer base . . . .

I'm jealous!

Blimey, I didn't realise Futaba made them but happy they do, I can understand why Futaba don't badge them as why would they support a JR product.

I'm not keen on the fixed 2.4 radios, much nicer to have the flexibility of a module.

IMO JR is doing itself a big disatvantage by not making it's entire product
line available to the U.S. customer base.

Last time I checked, the JM912 had been discontinued in the USA.

I spoke to Bill Baxter, Manager of Hobby Services/Futaba Service/North America earlier this year and he stated that it was discontinued, but you still can get them from Ripmax and Robbe.

I don’t think the Hobbico/Futaba JM912 FASST module for JR radios got enough press when available.

Since Spektrum has stated that they won’t be making DSMX (Hopping) available to the module Based JR radios, except for the 12x MV. I think Hobbico should rethink this and re offer the FASST module (Hopping). A little good marketing right now could really pay off.
