Are there new mid priced FASST radios coming?

I noticed the 18SZ and 6K have hit the market.
I'd like to know if Futaba will be bringing forth any new
7,8, or 9 channel FASST/FASSTest radios in the near future?

Electric power setup for Riser.

I have my Sig Riser kit and have decided to go with brushless power. I need recommendations for
the motor/esc/lipo/folding prop. I would like to use Eflite products because my LHS has them in stock.

You made out on the Futaba 8U. It's regarded as one of the best transmitters Futaba ever made. The great

Since the Saito's carb will be against the firewall, I'm using the DuBro 4-stroke throttle
linkage kit. It requires you to drill and tap a hole in the engine mount, after that it's a sinch to set up.
