    to be able to slow the servo down, eg flaps to deploy slowly then come back up quickly.

    RE: Futaba servo slow question

    ten caps do not
    i had futaba 10c and due to the advancement in skill level and new jets i just
    sold 10c and went with 12fga
    awesome radio
    easy to deal with
    your are 2 buttons away from screen you need

    servo slow option on all 12 channels very cool in deed
    i flew my 1/6 jl f 16 with both 10cap and 12 fga

    what a difference with servo slow
    smoother flights and not so jerky
    but it all depends on set up

    but definitely for the money 999 tower hobbies and get it with the 6014 hs dont get fs receiver
    let me know if you have any questions or call my programer 3053001800 marvin

    futaba till death
    jet central for life have them all mammoth x 3

    RE: Futaba servo slow question

    I was looking at that radio and I just did not like the plug in transmitting module, looks like they are just trying to sell of old stock, with new updated parts
    That said if that has servo slow on all the functions I may have to go with it.
    What is the difference with the two receivers?

    RE: Futaba servo slow question

    this is quoting futaba technician
    if you are running digital servos which most people are on the hs which stands for high speed digital servos is required for channels 1-6 the fs system cannot support the voltage or current draw in those channels for a high duration

    i used to have 2 fs rx and now i only run hs rx on all my jets with this new radio

    but its not the radio that requires it it is the system of servos you use
    please calll futaba directly and reconfirm what i told you

    i had the futaba 10c and i sold it as a combo with both rx
    this eliminates all current and draw problems when i switched over to hs
    again you can also talk to my programmer marvin 3053001800
    he is futaba freek and has been in hobby 15 plus years
    he knows servo slow thats how he flies
    thanks

    RE: Futaba servo slow question

    Better still the 12Fg is actually a 14 channel set but channels 13 and 14 are on off not proportional.

    RE: Futaba servo slow question

    You can only use those 2 channels for switching on and off. You cannot mix them or use end points. It is no problem as you often have the need to switch electronic valves for example.

    The 8FG Super 14 TX don't have FLAP servo slow function, just a heads up.

    Yes it does, sort of . You need to use the sailplane programming then the speed functions are available on the flight conditions screens. No slow for anything other than throttle in the airplane programming although I believe there is a workaround involving virtual channels running through the throttle channel mixer which gets seperated from the actual throttle function.

    RE: Futaba servo slow question

    That's the one! Only disadvantage is you suck up a P-mix for each function you need slowed which could easily be 3 - flaps, gear and doors...
