14 Channel S.Bus2 Radios

Futaba has released some new mid tier radios that use their T-FHSS technology. There are three versions, Air, Heli and FPV, and all are compatible with telemetry sensors and S.Bus 2 gear. They have back lit LCD screens and a scroll wheel for accessing menus and functions. All three radios are essentially the same with the main difference being the airplane version has a ratchet throttle and the FPV and Heli version has a smooth throttle. Each radio comes with a different receiver to suit the aircraft type and all are the same price at $449. This should be a quality radio for the mid level market.

Thanks, this is a news article though which gets seen in more places than just the forum. Different kind of post than a discussion thread.

Yep, just trying to point people to a thread where many questions have already been asked and answered. I suppose from your end it makes sense to have multiple threads, but if a person is trying to help answer question, etc. it gets to be a pain to try to keep track of multiple threads. Multiple threads also dilute the dissemination of information since the same info does not always end up in each thread.
