RE: Futaba R6014FS Rx & minimum number of servos
I checked the thread on Futaba's forum, and there has not been any post back from Bax regarding your question to him..Maybe, there is no good reason why there has to be a servo plugged into the receiver, except that is what Bax is parroting from his sources in Japan.
Anyway, I'm with you in thinking that there is really no good reason why the Futaba statement, and that ALL the servos should be routed through the Power Expander.
I also received the following email from Ted Edginton on 2/5 regarding this issue.
