Default Spectra RTF Sailplane and Futaba R114F receiver

I recently purchased a Great Planes Spectra RTF 2M sailplane from towerhobbies. The Futaba SS3 FM transmitter was included and the Futaba R114F receiver came installed.

I'm concerned since the manual that came with the plane states that the R114F is ONLY for park flyers and slow flyers. I did a search on this receiver and found the following:

"The Futaba R114F receiver is intended for very small models. Its range is about 650 feet, so it may not be useful for a soarer, unless you're going to keep it fairly close."

This 2M sailplane is intended to exceed this 650 feet range, especially when thermal-ing. Did the wrong radio come with my RTF package? or should I not worry and just fly?

Thanks.

Default RE: Spectra RTF Sailplane and Futaba R114H receiver

Which is it?
The thread title says R114H, the message says R114F.
The R114H is suitable for any purpose, any range.
I use a lot of them.

Sorry, I had a typo in the thread subject line. I corrected it. The receiver it came with is the R114F, with the 650 foot range according to Futaba.
