This is the Futaba 8J radio system with S-FHSS (frequency hopping spread spectrum) technology. Futaba is known for making the highest quality and most reliable systems on the market. The Futaba 8J is one of the most reliable and most economical 8 channel radios available. Don't trust your models to an off brand unreliable radio with no support or warranty when a radio like this is available. The 8J has a large backlit display, 20 Model memory, and many popular features only found on more expensive radios. With all these features and a fantastic price, we think the Futaba 8J is an 8 channel radio worth owning. The radio requires 4AA batteries. We recommend using Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable AA cells. An optional rechargeable NiMh pack is also available.

First thing is the reason for only 4 stars. Nothing made by man is perfect. That being said. I only wish I had bought it sooner. Sure it cost a little bit more than some but its worth the price.

First let me explain the 4 star rating. Nothing man made is perfect. This radio turned out to be easier to use than I thought it would be. I've been using a Spektrum radio but I wanted to try something different. WOW what a difference. This radio has more to offer in the way of adjustments. The Rx's have dual antenna's. I only wish I had gotten this radio sooner. I would recommend Futaba to anyone. I bought it to fly a Naza equipped multi-rotor I built.
