Futaba 8J 8-Channel Transmitter with R2008SB Receiver

Brand: Futaba /
Regular price $ 279.99

Futaba 8J Air S-FHSS 2.4GHz 8 channel radio with R2008SB 8 channel Rx - FUTK8100

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, telemetry, and many popular features only found on more expensive radios. With all these features and a fantastic price, we think the Futaba 8J is a radio worth owning. The radio requires 4AA batteries. We recommend using Sanyo Eneloop rechargeable AA cells. An optional rechargeable NiMh pack is also available.
