I have a R6014FS 14-Channel Receiver that I recently bought from a guy on this forum. I am also thinking about buying an 8 channel FASST receiver. I noticed that there is a newer "HS" model and the "FS" models are discontinued. Is there a reason for this? Have there been any reliability issues with the older "FS" models?

Thanks in advance for your help,

Joe

My guess is everyone wants the HS (high speed) receivers, and the regular ones don't sell anymore.

the newer HS rx's are the updated version of the FS versions. they are exactly the same except the servo refresh rate can be faster if you desire to run it in HS mode. they will function exactly the same in normal mode. that is the only difference between them so they would naturally stop production on the one. the HS mode increases the refresh rate for digital servos only and only on the first 6 channels. This is from Futaba's website

# High-speed operation takes advantage of digital servos’ ability to update more rapidly than analog servos (both can be used with this receiver)

# HS (High Speed) mode improves frame rate on channels 1-6 to only 7 milliseconds — compared to 14 milliseconds at normal mode.*

* Note: In HS mode, digital servos (including those in the BLS series) must be used on channels 1-6. Those channels will also operate gyros and brushless ESCs. Channels 7 and 8 continue at normal mode and accept any servos.

Hope this helps

Tom

Also, with the new R6014HS you can use use this device http://www.futaba-rc.com/radioaccys/futm4158.html
and gain up to 24 channels, All seven of the added channels (per unit) are fully proportional, switch selectable - and all feature endpoint adjustment (ATV) and failsafe!

They probably fixed the overhead shutdown issue as well...
