It just felt great in my hands.
Did it still have my N5c model in it?

How did the 14SG feel in terms of weight as compared to the 18MZ? Asking this as I'm looking to get a separate radio for DLG flying as the 18 is a wee bit heavy for a day's dlg flying.

Flew all weekend. My brother stopped in to fly with me. Sold him my 8fg last month anticipating the release of the 14sg. It was so nice to fly with the 8fg again after flying with the 7c for the last month. It makes me want the 14 to hurry up and get here as l can not fully program my planes with the 7c and the 8fg feels so much nicer than the 7c.
Come on FCC you are killing me here.

It is between the 8FG and 18MZ as far as weight goes. Definitely more heft than an 8FG but not nearly as much as the 18MZ. It just feels solid in your hands.

So if i connect the Data Wire to S.BUS 2 from jeti max bec 2d the transmitter will read the battery and regulated voltages? What have i to set up in t14??

No, no data. No compatibility, nothing. Futaba will tell you the voltage of your servo bus as well as any other battery you wire to it.

They are trying to tell you that you are asking the wrong person. No one here can answer that question- YOU MUST ASK JETI.

like a broken record...

Connect your battery to the voltage port of the R7008. Anything more than that requires Futaba brand sensors.

Thanks! That seals the deal for me - it's gonna be an excellent second radio.

A man with too many toys
How many telemetry channels or did I miss that. I assume it’s 14 just like the control channels but I have not seen that published.
