I would like to see the comparison between the 8FG and the 14SG, and the 14SG inside. Any tips?
Here are the two working links for the "inside" and a comparison between the two.

You need to be a gold member. I tried using it as a club member and it wouldnt go through. Killer deal for this radio though.

Thanks for the links to the detailed photos. Interesting to see that the battery pack shown there is 2S LiFe, 2100mAH.

It would explain partly the higher price for units sourced from Robbe vs Hobbico

Where did you see info that flight conditions will be part of a future SW update? I can't see it.

I never said that flight conditiosn would be part of a future update.

I said that the dataloging of telemetry data to the SD card would be part of the February 2013 update.

post #193 said you did, sorry I misread.

Anyway, not flight conditions in Acro mode. Not now, not ever is my guess.

Sorry if I mislead anyone with my post #193, I was just quoting what TimBle posted in post #187 (snipet above) and unless I am completely miss-reading the highlighted text it seems to me that it states that there will be flight conditions in Acro mode (I read acro as airplane). I have no firsthand knowledge of this and I have done no research myself to back this up.

Now being in the software business myself I always take roadmaps with a grain of salt and don't assume anything in a roadmap will actually make the final product until I see it myself.

All, here is a copy of my post over on FG.

Okay we received clarification of Robbe's web site overnight from Futaba. The 14SG does not have flight conditions for the airplane side. As we have said, it does have them for the glider and helicopter modes.

Folks if you have read very many of my posts over the years you probably understand that I will not put out information that I don't have 100% confirmation on, nor will I speculate. This is also Hobbico's policy as a company. This is the reason I've been silent on this particular issue. While it may seem simple to many of you to simply shoot the factory an e-mail, you must also realize that they are in the final development stages of this system, testing, manual completion and the other myriad of tasks that goes with launching a product this significant. Features get incorporated, or removed at times prior to final production.

The features we list on our www.futaba-rc.com web site are the confirmed features. Are they 100% inclusive? Probably not as there is a ton that could be said about of radio of this nature, we pick what we feel are the most important features to list. I'm not sure I could even come up with a list of everything this system is capable of. I hope this makes sense. In any case, thank you for considering a Futaba system as you make radio purchasing decisions.
