Futaba 14SG linking??????
hi there guys

i'm interested for a futaba 14sg. So i decided to download a manual of it and see how is it.
i have many question which i suppose to be answered when i buy one.
Till now i want to explain me something else.

Do i have to bind my rx every time i switched from a model which works with fasst to a model which works with fasstest mode?

For exabple:
Flying with my trex600 with r6208sb receiver(fasst multi mode) land my heli, change the model through my 14sg to 700 and grab my trex700 to fly which is equiped with the new r7008sb receiver(fasstest 12channel mode). Do i have to bind again my t/x to r/x??????

I think i understand something like that in the manual.

I don't have the 14 but do have the 8FG. I would think that the 14 is like the 8. Once it is bound to the transmitter you won't have to keep binding every time. If the 14 is like my 8FG you have to be careful that you are on the right model as the receiver binds to the transmitter and not model location. So the receiver will work even if you have the wrong model selected. On the 8 I have mine set so I have to select the model I want to fly before the transmitter shows the home screen. Hope this makes sense to you. Chuck

Purplefox. I know exactly what you are asking and the answer is No, you just change the model and you are done, you only LINK a Futaba receiver once.

I'm sure rebinding will not be necessary, but you might have to re-power your TX, like we used to have to do with the 10CHP. Maybe guys with the 18 could answer this question, I'm sure it's the same way with that radio.Team Synergy, Rail blades, Team Scorpion, V-Team

If you are talking about rebinding between 2 different TX , then you will have to rebind every time you switch your TX. The RX binds to 1 TX at a time. If i remember correctly it memorize your TX UUID.

NO, you do not have to rebind when switching models. You program in the Rx type when you program each model memory. Then you bind only once when you set up the model.If you skip me I can't play!

You do not even need to power cycle the transmitter with the switch, and least with the 18 and I would bet with the 14 as well.

At least in tha case of Futaba, the whole concept of binding is treated as just the foundation for use. It is not now and has never been in the past something that is required to be done for daily operation of the equipment. Furthermore, the whole binding process is incredibly stable. It's just not something you ever have to do again once a receiver is bound to a given transmitter.

i have my receivers to 10c linked once too, even if i chance between 7 channel mode or 10 channel mode no binding is required.

I am wondering about that in 14sg because i read the manual
http://manuals.hobbico.com/fut/14sg-manual.pdf
go at page38 which says that link is required when a system type is changed. So thats why im asking.

maybe i misunderstood it!

thank you for your responce!!!

That means that if you change the system type for the currently selected model you must relink. For instance if you are using a R7008SB and FASSTest mode and change that out for a R617FS FASST RX. You will need to link that RX after changing from FASSTest to FASST for that model. After that you will not need to do it until and unless you change the type of RX and transmission protocol you are using.

Hope that helps.

The link process is a one off between rx and tx. If and when you get a 14SG you will need to link the receivers to the 14SG and from that time on will not work with your 8FG.

I have made the switch and all is good at this time.

I didn't program my 14SG. I copied the models on my 8FG to a SD card and loaded them back into the 14SG. No problems, no dramas, it just worked.

Do you still have the 10CG?

Apart from using the touch pad the actual menus are so similar you should find it straight forward to input your models from scratch. If you can have them both on the bench together I don't think i will take too long to do for each model. The only major difference is 5 point versus 7 point curves.

i have no prob at all programing the radio. i dont have 10cg anymore but that is not a prob. the only difficulty is the time, i need to find free time for this.
Also i dont know the run times of this radio using a 1800 nimh batt. probably i'll take a 2cell LiFe one. Faster charging time thats the most important for me.
Furthermore 14sg has a great feeling on my hands! definately better than 10cg (my opinion) and stick tension is adjustable via screws behind the tx thats all i mention for now.
one more think which i would like to explain me is the governor calibration or governors end point calibration something like that i dont remember excactly. what is that for?

Purple, im quoting this from another forum.

"I charged the new battery (6.0V 1800 NiMH) slowly and had a good flying session with the 14SG. It feels much more solid than the 8FG.Then, as I was spending time tinkering with the transmitter at home, I decided to let the battery run down until the alarm sounded. I wanted to see if the vibes remained on or switched off after a few seconds and also get an idea of battery life.I can confirm that the audible alarm and vibes both remain on until the transmitter is switched off. More interesting is the fact that the stock battery lasted for 11 hours and 58 minutes. A fair proportion of this was with the screen backlight on as I explored the menus.I have no strong feelings either way on the NiMH/ Li-Fe debate but thought this bit of information might be useful to those of you who are undecided."
