Futaba's 8J computer radio offers some fantastic features and at this price you'll realize that you didn't just get yourself a bargain, you got yourself one amazing system!

Futaba have packed so much into the 8J that it's practically bursting at the seams, so let's take a look at some of these features.  With the 8J you get frequency-hopping security, the ability to transfer model data wirelessly between 8J transmitters, 6 programmable mixes (2 with curves), 5 heli flight conditions, 3-axis gyro support, 5-point pitch/throttle curves and a receiver with a full-range, dual internal antenna that can handle any application you can think of.  All on-screen data is clearly displayed on a backlit LCD screen and everything is easily accessed and programmed with a jog dial and three buttons.

The included R2008SB 2.4GHz S-FHSS receiver is S.Bus-compatible and features Dual Antenna Diversity. It also comes equipped to handle high voltage applications.
