Compact, "All-in-One" Receivers
Futaba's small, powerful 2.4GHz FASST R617FS receiver for flight systems can control giant-scale models as easily as park flyers and weighs a scant 6.37 grams without case. Full-range systems from other manufacturers include a bigger, two-piece receiver, and you must purchase a smaller park flyer receiver separately. Over 2x Less Minimum Latency
Latency is the elapsed time between your movement of the transmitter controls and servo response. In Futaba 2.4GHz FASST systems, that response can happen over twice as fast so you feel less like you're "out in front" leading your model, and more like you're inside driving or flying it.Comparing the 6EX FASST system to the DX7.
100x Faster Antenna Switching
If the receiver notices a problem with the data coming into one antenna, it rapidly switches to the other, looking for the sharpest signal.Comparing the R617FS receiver to the AR6000 receiver.
Stronger, More Robust Link
Futaba doesn't need redundant receivers. Instead, we use a combination of Channel Shifting and Dual Antenna Diversity (DAD) to provide a robust, highly dependable link between transmitter and receiver. Hassle-Free Fail Safe
Futaba 2.4GHz's Fail Safe is programmed right through the transmitter just like PCM1024, PCM-G3, just like on conventional systems. The competitor's radios require a complicated six-step process to set up their Fail Safe, along with a separate binding plug that can easily be misplaced.
