The 8FG Super has been "Super-sized" with more channels and CGY750 gyro support!
The original 8FG was already the one of the best value 2.4GHz radios available. Now, for the same cost, the 8FG Super offers six additional channels — plus new software with menus tailored to Futaba's super-fast CGY750 gyro. Recommended by Bobby Watts, Matt Botos and Kyle Stacy, it's the first radio that really supports flybarless helicopters. And it's perfect for all other applications, too...a smart choice for ANY forward-thinking flier.
New 8FG Super features.
• Expanded with 14 total transmitter channels — 12 proportional and two switched.
• Included R6208SB receiver's PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) channels support up to 8 standard analog or digital servos — and it handles up to 18 channels when used with an S.Bus system.
• Gyro menu supports 3-axis gyros and is perfectly tailored to the CGY750.
• User menu allows pilots to customize and display frequently used functions.
• VPP (Variable Pitch Propeller) compatibility can be set to three conditions for throttle and pitch curve.
• Swash trim can be adjusted from the swash screen.

received my tx/rx today from hobbyking HK warehouse, this is an excellent price compare to any other retailer. excellent TX compare to my previous Spektrum (I am not saying Spektrum is bad), but this Futaba T8FG is more powerful compare to Spektrum, 154 channels, assignable switches, s-bus, etc. I love this TX so much, I can go way with this TX. Thank you HobbykingPossiedo questa radio da poco e mi sono trovato molto bene, ogni canale e switch assegnabile, molti mix per aereo preimpostati..fantastica 14 canali con anche 4 potenziometri sono perfetti per fumogeni,flaps e qualsiasi cosa abbiate sul vostro modello. Qualit e prezzo senza paragoni in italia. Aggiornata alla versione 5.0 con gli addendum compresi nel manuale in inglese. Caricabatterie non compreso. Possibilit di cambiare i 4 mode con stick libero o a tacchette del gas. Ricevente 8ch con canale sbus compreso! FUTABA il meglio!!!This is a fantastic TX for the pilot who wants full control over their RC systems. Every switch/pot/lever/stick is programmable, meaning you can move things around as you please. There are more options on this TX than I know what to do with.
Most people think the sBUS system is a waste of money but it really does clean things up and since an sBUS capable RX comes with this TX, I had to try it out. I use it with a multicopter running AeroQuad code, made a small sBUS library to be able to use the RX to its full potential, and it's incredible how steady the channels are now. Not only that, I went from being able to use 8 channels to 14 in the blink of an eye.
My only complaint is that it takes forever to charge the battery (manual says 12 hrs) - my old Spektrum would charge in an hour. I'll be buying backup batteries soon...Hi all! Today I got a Futaba transmitter to store HobbyKing. I fly mode MODE2, as is proposed here only mode MODE1. It's easy to change, in the statement, which comes complete with a transmitter that is well documented. The transmitter looks good, it is already installed version 4.1 software. The charger is not supplied with the transmitter. Immediately recommend to buy neck strap to the transmitter. The shop sells branded HobbyKing neck straps Futaba. Because the one that comes with the transmitter is not very convenient. The transmitter is very comfortable to hold in their hands, they are easy to manage! Included also are various pinch plates stick throttle - airplane, and helicopter version.
The transmitter is manufactured in Taiwan.
