BAX, the Futaba rep, has said repeatedly that there are no intentions for such a module. If YOU know otherwise please give evidence.

I have been told by a VERY reputable person at Futaba, that should be here around mid-year 2008.
Singapore Hobbies told me that they are supposed to have them within the next few weeks.

If what I've seen posted on "other" forums is true, that module for JR radios will be a Robbe product, not Futaba. If you look at the pics in the posted links, "Robbe" appears on the components...

And your point is????

My point is that if it's Robbe's deal and if Futaba does not choose to offer it through their distribution network, then the only way you'll get one is if you buy it from one of Robbe's dealers, not that it isn't a Futaba FASST hardware/software implementation..[8D]

So say you get someone from across the pond to ship you a module, which power output rating will it have? I'm not sure of exactly what they'll be putting out since there are differences in the allowed transmission power output of SS systems between European countries and they are all lower than the USA. Nor am I aware of how Futaba handles that issue as I've not seen anything posted about it in the forums I peruse.

Now Spektrum has an interesting idea for that with the new DX6i tx's in that they come (at least in the Blade 400 helis) set to European power outputs and a note in the manual to change it to US power outputs if you're using it here. Some of the Spektrum/JR support guys have said you can use the lower power output without problems, but I wonder why it has two if that is the case? And from the European regulator's position, what's to keep a user over there from selecting the US power output levels?????

Futaba Fasst has the same power output all over the world; 70-90mW.

And there is also the issue that they MAY not be certified for use in the U.S. by the FCC. Bye-Bye also to AMA insurance if that is true.

Hi Zeeb,
That was my point, that it is the FASST technology by Futaba.
Will we see a US version[:-] beats me
