Was talking to a friend in the trade and he suggested that Futaba have brought in the new system to be competitive with Spektrum on prices. They cant get the cost of fasst systems down cheap enough for the average sport modeler. They will continue with Fasst for high end systems. But whether this is "spin" im not sure.
4 to 5 years is ok as i would look to buy a new tx by then
i have always been futaba and i personally would not change.
I have heard the same from a friend of a member of trade too.
Maybe a Jeti system next time......................
the ability isn't the same as the necessity though.
Seems like a low cost system rather than a replacement for FASST?
I think the title of the thread is a tad slanderous.What has JR done exactly ?

Peeps - this thread is about two different Futaba systems. If irrelevant posts about a multiplex system were posted you'd be screaming complaints. Can we keep the discussion of the relative merits of other systems to threads where that is the subject?Much obliged,PDR
Well they listened to you for a few hours Pete Mark
Hum...Intresting theres only one Tranny supported with this new system:http://www.futaba-rc.com/systems/futk4200.htmlLooks like Futaba are doing a low level entry set upAt No point on the Website Does it Say:FASST = no moreThese new receivers nothing specail really just 3 channel ones to 6 channel. certianly not going to ditch Futaba here and I have the 12FG and I'm not going to panic about these new receiver options.Or go down the route of it means Futaba are now doing this or doing that. that just creates stupid rumors
Funny how different peoples minds work. It was having the satellites that made me leave Futaba. The ability to position several rx's around the model seemed like a good idea to me.
Perhaps Muchperplexed should also be included in the discussion as will they move on without leaving an upgrade path for their sets that are less than 6 months old?
