I just picked up a really nice used gasser. In all my heli's I have only ever run FM ch 59 with the deans whip antenna, I have never used PCM but I also have never had a gasser. Should I run FM with deans antenna? Or would a PCM reciever be better. I'm affraid that if I go with a PCM it will go into fail safe and I will lose it. What do ya think?

In my experience with a gas model I owned, the kind of "noise" sometimes seen with a gas model IS the kind that will intermittently glitch a straight FM receiver BUT will RARELY, if ever, cause an FM/PCM receiver to lock out. I would absolutely use the FM/PCM.

Mike once you go to pcm you will never go back. there are a lot of advantages to pcm. It has saved more of my models then fm ever has.

I agree. The MA folks strongly recommend PCM for the gasser to preclude the ignition RF interference. BTW, the Revolution whip is better IMO. I had a Deans whip fail quite early, the Revo holds up better and is more befitting your upscale gasser. Make sure you secure the whip lightly, to prevent it becoming a tuning fork and also failing. Have fun!
