Futaba/JR Question
I am going to be using one of the CGY750 gyros on a flybarless heli. I have flown JR for years, but it looks like going to the Futaba FG8 Super may be the easiest way to use the CGY750. My question is, can JR digital servos be used with the Futaba receiver? That would save me a bunch of $$$ as I would only need to buy the transmitter/receiver package. Thanks!

Yes they can. You will need a SBUS receiver to get the 750 to work.

I Don't Suppose......
I don't suppose it is possible to just use the Futaba S.BUS receiver with the JR transmitter, is it? I don't know if it would receive the input signals correctly from the JR tx......that would REALLY save some $$$ !

NO! Futaba 2.4 Fasst receivers (Serial Bus or NOT) will only work with Futaba Fasst Transmitters or Fasst Modules in non 2.4 Futaba Transmitters like the 9c and my 12z which was originally a 72mHZ unit. You need the Futaba Tx and Rx (SB only!) currently for the GY750. Later there might be "box" for using a non Futaba SB receiver.Trex 700 FBL, Synergy N5 FBL, Trex 600Pro FBL, Blade mCPx

You can utilize any digital servos that you'd like with the Futaba 750 and S-Bus.

I would recommend the 6203 RX with your 8FG as it's the smallest and lightest RX and works perfect with the CGY750.

The 8FG is an extremely capable 14 channel radio, you will surely like it.
