Default R7018SB Warning

There is a big discussion on F/G regarding issues people are having with the latest futaba rx, the R7018SB. It is having a problem with some brushles servos and is frequently going to lock out. Yesterday someone lost a jet. Be careful, I found some videos:

despite having 2 deans plugs the rx is rated for 12 amps with a 20 amp peak and a warning is included saying not to use more than 6 HV brushless servos!
