Futaba in everything would be too expensive.FrSky somehow seems too good to be true for me to feel confident in the better planes.
We've had a couple of old flyers returning to the fold over the last few months.Both had Futaba 7 or 9's and both we're looking at the module option.I think Leeds models sorted them with new TX's in the end as the difference in price was very small.
CLIP.......Does anybody have first hand experience (good or bad) of the following.Futaba 7 channel receivers (currently on special offer at £50)
Why go 2.4ghz ?thats the 1s question35mhz works - can get interference2.4ghz works - can get interference35mhz is R/C planes only2.4ghz is open to many many uses!!BUT Futaba costs more Oh please FASST Works you can lock in a receiver and it will stay binded! You'll never rebind one even after 3 months it'll work.PCM receivers cost what ? and people moan about a 60 pound 7 channel receiver please.Makes me laugh people put a 200-400-1000 model in the air and skimp on what one of the most important bits ??
I am one of many who have been forced down the 2.4 route as all the shows now insist on it. (Strange how a couple of years ago it was banned by the LMA....) I have a Futaba module for my FF9 and use Futaba 7 channel Rxs.
Why do all Shows insist on it ?Now thats almost amusing, They do know of course that in theory security cameras at these big sites could be on 2.4ghz ? or for that matter other security systems for that matter on 2.4ghz and that wait for it could in theory cause an issue. (I mean the likes of shows held at Event sites not a flyin etc etc) Think someones making an error somewhere they need to remember the 2.4ghz range is not just for model flyers! 35mhz is Just for Model flying.Why force people down a route that is no safer overall than 35mhz ?oh I do fly 2.4ghz and 35mhz and you know theres a difference granted but 35mhz still does the job and has better Range!
Not seen any issues with the 10C and we have fair few Large models being flown with them at winterton.But as you say it can be down to personal feel.I've been looking at the 8 myself Dunno about the Jetti - never seen anyone fly with them.Cheers,Chris
