Raybans,

The 8FG does in-fact ship with the the R6108SB receiver, so you'll have an S.Bus receiver right off the bat. The new little guy R6203SB is going to be great for any full S.Bus install, it's also perfect for mini's and micro's.

The new one offers nothing over the R6108SB except it's size.

Steve,

appreciate the info., thanks.

Here in the UK Ripmax are still shipping the 8FG combo with a standard Rx!

Here is a picture of the R6203SB receiver. I posted specs yesterday.

I understand that the 6203SB should be in the UK sometime during February.
Around the same time that we start to see the CGY750 gyro system.

That picture does not rally get across how tiny this thing is. I joked that the reason they made it full range was so they could use the two normal length antennas on it so you can find it on the bench!!

It looked like a winner to me!!

Not only will this give a clean install with the CGY750 but also the gy701. With a 8fg,12fg,12z, or 14mz you can put channel 1,2,and 3 as cyclic and the SBUS port will carry rudder,gain, and throttle to the GY701! Flybarred helis can also have a simple clean install.

futaba systems
Is the whole system going to be able to operate on a 2 cell lipo, ie servo,s gyro,s and receivers?

i have some question on the receiver and other general question on futaba fasst.
- PWM 3CH (CH 1,2,3)
what is PWM?

on the 'r6106hfc' receiver, the channel 3 has a "3/MC" symbol, what does the MC stand for and what does it mean?
- S.BUS 16+2CH
does that mean 18 proportional channel total, or 16 proportional channel plus 2 on/off channel.

on the 'r6102sb', if an native s.bus servo was programed and assigned to channel 5, and this same servo is pluged into the channel 1 slot on the receiver, would it still recognize channel 5 inputs from the transmitter. or does it have to be connected to the s.bus slot to utillize s.bus functionality?

how many channel can the 14mz transmit with the s.bus system, not speaking of the r6202sb specifically, but s.bus in general?

thanks

Tam

what is PWM?
Pulse Width Modulation, or in other words traditional way of controlling servos. It's just a way for Futaba to distinguish between the old way (PWM) and the new way (S.Bus). The new R6203SB has three PWM connections and one S.Bus connection. PWM is how every single radio manufacture controls servos from their RX, until Futaba invented S.Bus which changed the game.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulse-width_modulation
on the 'r6106hfc' receiver, the channel 3 has a "3/MC" symbol, what does the MC stand for and what does it mean?
"MC" stands for "Motor Controller", or in other words electronic speed controller (ESC). It's on Ch3 because in the standard Futaba channel mapping Ch3 is the throttle channel.
on the 'r6102sb', if an native s.bus servo was programed and assigned to channel 5, and this same servo is pluged into the channel 1 slot on the receiver, would it still recognize channel 5 inputs from the transmitter. or does it have to be connected to the s.bus slot to utillize s.bus functionality?
PWM and S.Bus are not cross compatible. Hence why the separate ports on the RX as well as the external SBD-1 S.Bus encoders for using traditional servos in a S.Bus configuration.

I suggest you watch all the informational videos on Futaba's S.Bus site and it will probably answer all your questions.

Tam,

PWM is Pulse Width Modulation. This is the "normal" data stream seen by all but S.Bus equipment.

3/MC is channel 3 or Motor Control (ESC)...call it throttle.

16 +2 is 16 proportional, 2 switched.

Hopefully you mean 6108SB...normal channel five, regardless of the servo, will respond to channel five commands.

The 14MZ is a 14 channel transmitter. It does not gain channels when using S.Bus.

Regards,

it was a typo, i actually mean the r6203sb, and not the r6108sb. but i understand now.
The 14MZ is a 14 channel transmitter. It does not gain channels when using S.Bus.
well, the 14mz can utilize upto 26 proportional channels with the use of one 14 channels receiver and two MPDX-1 decoders. i thought all along that the s.bus system will also take part in this role as well, but i guess not. but it would be nice if it could make use of this fuction on the s.bus system though.
