Default T-FHSS receivers applications

I recently ordered a 16IZ radio and I see that it is compatible with all the Futaba protocols. I was planning on getting some R3008SB receivers, but the folks at my field said they are only for electric and small planes. Is it true? I don't see anywhere on the manual such limitations. Is it safe to use them on any glow powered plane? Is it safe to use them on gassers?

I would appreciate your comments, thank you!

Very solid full range RX. Definitely not limited range or limited to small electrics.

I am using the R3008SB in a couple of large gas planes and some 4-meter all carbon gliders. It is a full range receiver. the People at your field are wrong. It also offers telemetry as well.
