Default Futaba 9CAF or 9CAP??

Please explain the difference between the Futaba 9CAF and 9CAP. The 9CAF is FM and the 9CAP is PCM. Why is one better than the other? Is PCM better than FM? Thanks.

The transmitters are identical. The CAP comes with a PCM receiver.

Smo,
If you do a search on these boards you'll find numerous PPM vs PCM discussions. You'll need to decide for yourself which you prefer and why. Many of us strongly prefer PCM for the added failsafe features that Futaba packages in its PCM systems that the PPM (FM) system doesn't carry.
