    RE: RC Skydiving with Futaba FASST

    Hi Paul F

    I have converted all of my jumpers to 2.4 using Futaba R-6106 six channel rx's. These are "mid-range receivers" I use my old Futaba 9Z converted to the 2.4 module.

    So far, no problems. Also use 2.4 rx on my Telemaster jump plane.

    It's all about me -

    Paul R.

    RE: RC Skydiving with Futaba FASST

    Hi Paul ,

    I have also converted my skydivers to Futaba , use 2 different rx's , a R608FS and a R617FS use them for more than a year with no problem .
    Also use a to 2.4 converted 9Z transmitter .

    All of my fail openings and dirt dives of the last year had the same cause ,messy folding ![:@]


    Have one jumper on a Spektrum AR500 rx in combination with a DX7 .
    Also with no problem .

    My feeling is that the Futaba combination is faster recognized and responding faster.
    Life is what happens to you while youΒ΄re busy making other plans. I had other plans but .........

    I just overhauled Charly this past week with a 2S lipo and a 617 receiver. We had no problems.
