Hi guys

I want to buy another R6108HS receiver, but see the new S Bus receiver is now also available.

Is there any reason NOT to rather buy the new R6108SB receiver?

Does anyone know if this new receiver needs the S Bus programming cable to function like a normal 'old' receiver?

Does the new receiver loose performance/speed/range or anything else while gaining the S Bus function?

There is little info on the Futaba web site on how to get it to work etc....

I don't need S Bus now, but for the same price, i would like to keep the option open for the future.

Thanks guys

Regards
Paul

I'm getting two 8 channels next week and they will be SB's, they will work with regular servos (Digitals and Analogs). If or when I go with S-Bus, Then I already have the receivers.

Hi DougV

So the SB Rx is the same as the HS, plus the S Bus facility?

This is the evolution of receivers - 608FS, 6008HS, 6108HS. They're all the same price. I'm waiting on the new 12Z HS and those new potless brushless servos ! This is exciting to me as things are changing about the same rate they did in the 70's. Those 1024 decades were really boring.
