Works great

I've always liked Futaba since I started flying, this light receiver works great, easy to install and gives you the flexibility for most model applications at an awesome price.

Futaba Receiver

Have flown Futaba radio systems for 15 years and never h ad a problem with the receivers. I have, however, experienced two transmitter failures, costing two airplanes, and recently purchased my third transmitter. If I had not already had 11 Futaba receivers I would probably switched to Spectrum instead on purchasing another Futaba transmitter.

Reliable Receivers

I’ve used Futaba gear for over 30 years. Never had any failures. A little pricey but then when you have big airplanes it’s worth it.

overwhelmingly great radio

Coming back to RC from long break, all I can say is - unbelievable progress in technology! This radio is going to keep you smile forever. Learning curve is steady, but long which is a great thing. I'm glad I made a 12ision to get 14 channel version, no way I'll be limited in flying multi-copters, planes or gliders. Great price form MRC, fast delivery, made me a frequent shopper here. :-)
