I've been flying with a Futaba 7UHF for years. One of the parameters you can set is modulation (PCM or PPM). I'm about to order a PCM RX, but I just want to be 100% certain that the UHF can actually transmit PCM. Can anyone confirm this for me.

Thanks.

I don't think so
Being UHF that is PPM only, programming may call for PCm but that is only because the software is very similar to the UHP version.....But it shouldn't be functional......contact towerhobbies.com and they can tell you for certain HOPE this helps

All the 7u transmitters will do either PPM or PCM

Spork,

It will work just fine. The F and P at the end just shows what kind of receiver it came with originally. If you buy a PCM receiver, set the transmitter in PCM mode and it will work.

Thanks guys. I always thought it would do either, but then I had a moment of doubt as I was getting ready to order the PCM RX. I'll give it a go.

UH OH! I have the 7UHF Super. I assumed it would work, but thought it better to ask. Now I'm thinking I better check it out before ordering. Anyone know how to tell which ones do and which do not? I will ask Tower, but frankly I feel more confident about getting good answers on here.
