Default Is Futaba 8J compatible with FASST

Is the Futaba R617 FASST receiver compatible with the Futaba 8J or 10J transmitter. I have many FASST rx's but would like a new tx.

No. 8J and 10J transmitters are S-FHSS/T-FHSS only with the 10J capable of using both protocols. 8J uses S-FHSS only.

Currently New Futaba FASST transmitters are in the 14SG ($649.00) and up models. However depending on your budget you can go new or shop around for a good used 8FG or 12FG FASST transmitter. The 10CAG is a good model too although I'm not sure if Futaba still services that one as it has been around longer.
