Tx case for 8FG
Hi guys

I have an 8FG on the way to me.

Do any of you have the 8FG and a nice case for it.

The Futaba single case looks nice, but the foam cut out looks like it is for a 'old style' antenna.

Any pictures would be appreciated.

Regards
Paul

Tx Case
I have a 9C with the Futaba single case then got the 8FG just last month. My wife liked it so much she asked to use it for her sailboat. Hmmmm sure...... so, I got to upgrade myself and picked up the 10FG....

Anyway, I added the Hobbico dual case. It's a bit close for two, but what is nice is the foam is cut into little 1/2 inch pieces. you simply customize for your needs. I think it would be great for the one radio and accessories.

Paul,

Even though the cut out may be optimized for older style transmitters, a hot knife and 5 minutes will make it fit your radio well and still look professional.

Enjoy your new toy and the confidence it'll give you in your radio link.

Hi Guys

Thanks for the info.

I didn't realise how 'flat' the 8FG's antenna folds down.

I will just order the Futaba single case. Cool to have Futaba logo on my case again......

Thanks

You can also just go to a local lowes or harbour freight and get cases for about 25 to 30 bucks with the foam cut outs.YRCHA CLUB MEMBER

Hi guys

I bought the Futaba single case. It is really a nice high quality case. Much better than some of the 'no name brand' things i have seen.

It needs a little trimming for the top switches, handle and antennae.

15 min with a sharp knife.....

Regards
Paul

I use this one
I can stand up and charge and put my alpha charger with all charge cords and another radio if desired. They cost about $80.

I bought the same Futaba Aero Team case, for €39 here.

The looks and the overall quality is so much higher compared to the no-name "technician" cases available from home improvement shops.

It matches my 8FG perfectly - I have the TX fitted with a Robbe carbon tray - the case is perfect for this and looks the business
