I changed from a 12FG to a 14SG this year and LOVE the 14SG. Programming is a tad different but didnt take long to get it all figured out. So for me it was a change worth doing. Go for it, I think you will be glad you did.

14SG has FBL gyro support. I don't count me rigging my 10CAP to get "some" remote swash gain adjustment as FBL support.

I don't like no graph to show you swash plate type like in the 10c
you gonna have to figure out what's h-1 h-2 h3- and so on.
kinda lame to me, they not thinking about the guy who don't know
what 120 CCPM mean.

yeah but its a setting that you select ONCE during initial set up(of the model) and never have to touch again.Doesn't seem like something thats a deal breaker on a great radio

yea" that true but my overall objection with the radio is that most peeps coming into
the hobby will not understand what those perimeter are. Such as H-1 H2-3,
I met a lot of pilot who just want to set up a swash ring and not have
to call (Futaba) and ask what is H2-3, H-3, mean? 'don't get me wrong I being in
the hobby for 9 years and still don't understand what some of these swash
letter mean' so without the visual showing of the swash type.

most of us pilot are Kinesthetic learner.

No need to call anyone. The manual has graphical representations of each swash type.

The 14SG is a fantastic radio at a great price.

Indeed" I like it I'm just not over the top about it simply because it doesn't have the graph display of the swash type.
FUTABA radio are suicide LOL, no model match you can fly a 100 heli all at once FUTABA is the best in my book as i cant stand the backward polarity in them Spectrum/JR radio.

The JR 12X best freakin and most comfort radio in my hand.

It would be nice it they made a FASSTest 10C.

It would be nice it they made a FASSTest 12FG.

It would be nice it they made a FASSTest 12Z.

There is a damn big hole in the Futaba lineup.

Only if you use a Futaba FBL system...Right?

I have an 8FG and see no way to adjust gyro gain with my non-Futaba FBL system.

Correct, my (limited) experience is with a CGY750 and 10CAP. Is there a specific gain adjustment channel on your non-futaba FBL controller?

I was able to assign my remote gains to ch 8, and I adjust the gain by changing the endpoints. It's on a two position switch, so one endpoint is AVCS, the other normal.

All this talk about FBL support is ridiculous. All radios support FBL. If your system supports remote gains (not sure exactly which do and don't, off the top of my head 750, Robird, Beast, and I think Vbar do, most other probably do as well) then you can use the built in gyro menus to change the gains by assigning the channels properly. If you are using a 10c, 8c, 7c etc etc etc it still works exactly the same, you just aren't doing it in a pretty gyro menu, you are doing it by assigning the channels and adjusting the gains with the end points of those channels.

BeastX has no remote gain except the tail.
I don't think many do at all.

I literally never use the word literally right.

Exactly. It supports remote gain, just on the tail. Just looked it up and vbar does as well. For head gains the 750 does, and the Robird does (as well as tail)

That's what I was saying.

I know any radio can use end points to adjust gains that have remote settings....as long as your RX and radio have enough channels....8 minimum.

On my 750 and Robirds, I set the Ail and Elev gains to a single channel, as suggested by Nick Maxwell in his 750 videos. I've found that it works well to just keep them at the same value and haven't had any weird issues that have required me to separate them to tune it.

Skookums have remote cyclic gains as well. It's a useful feature indeed.
