I use the 2700mAh battery that I had bought for my 7C, works great and seems to last a good time

700mAh seems to be a bad joke from Futaba..

standard is 700mah. Works for quite a while before it goes flat. Battery packs for the 9c/7c will work. Alternatively, you can use a battery cradle for 8-cell AA and some good nimh(like the eneloop). Those will give much better battery life and don't self discharge.

Well mine came with a 1200mah as std, so i guess ripmax (main futaba importer in uk) must upgrade for us?

Well we in europe must be lucky. Robbe the importer of Futaba in Europe supplies the 10C with a 2000 mAh NiMh battery. Btw the 10C feels really solid and connected in the air.

Yup, using the same pack Blademan is using from Helidirect. At a rate of about 10-13 flights a week on average, plus 2 hours or so a week on the sim, Ive gone about 1 month so far and am only at 11.5v on the pack. The best part is it only takes about an hour to recharge for another 6 weeks of use!!

Possible to turn the RF OFF?

If I am not mistaken somebody said it is possible to turn the RF OFF without removing the module on this radio. Is that possible?
Would be handy if when doing long programming; radio would use less battery...

Great coops2. But would you also tell me how? I asked because I apparently couldn't find it in the instruction manual.

Thanks...

Oh ok

Its very simple, when you are turning on the transmitter hold in the "dial" button, then once its on you get a screen with three functions "power down" which is a reduced power for range testing, then "off" which turns the RF off and "on" which turns the RF on once you select the function "off" you then push the button and you are in business... you should only get the red led on

Yep. No reason why synthezied 9C module wouldn't work on 10C. Any 9C module will work on 10C.

coops2, thanks. I checked, it really turns the RF oof. I knew that menu but didn't realize it can also completely turn off the RF. It is sweet...

10 c and pcm fm

thanks so much guy for the info...i though i remembered seeing such a module for the 9c ...Just didnt know it would work in the 10...i am guessing either the synthized module with the dials for any channel or the module and get matching crystals.....thanks alot....i am guessing there is no problems with the synthized module transmitting multiple channels??

Hey, anyone who have been using the 2.4 and 72 module and keep interchanging them, will this cause a wear on the connector? I have a lot of PCM/FM receiver which I used on foamies and I don't want to change them to 2.4 to reduce cost. I was hoping of just interchanging the module but afraid the connector will eventually wear out and will cause a problem.
