Guys I am about to order a Futaba 14SG from Fastlad in UK but got a bit mixed up. I was told that this transmitter comes with the ratchet on the throttle. So I am wondering if this is actually the heli or the airplane version. Cause the part number is P-CB14SG/L, not one listed on Futaba site.
Can someone also explain the difference in switch positions for the aircraft and heli version? Can't the switches be assigned to any function you want?

It looks like the one that you want. As for the switch positions, you can make them anything that you want. Futaba allows the user to assign the functions that they would like to use on any switch in the Function menu. So in essence you can set it up like a Spektrum or JR radio. You can also assign what function is on what channel. This really only works if you are using an S-Bus RX.

I like to play heli lawn darts.

Actually, You can assign a function to any switch and or channel with all FASST/FASSTest rx, not only with SBus.

Ok so the only difference between the aircraft and heli versions is the ratchet and the radio defaults to heli when creating a new model right? I sill cannot understand if this is the heli or aircraft version though

In the UK we never have a specific Heli or Aircraft version like in the USA - we just have a general transmitter that does all of the required model types.

In the USA, the ratchet is the only difference between the two radios.

Not sure if this is aplicable but when i got my 8fg i had the same questions and its right that we dont get specific heli or plane radios.

Also futaba usualy ship with the ratchet in europe but you get a smooth slider in the box to fit if you like, i did fit it very easy and feels much better for me.

Again not sure how accurate this info is, but this was my experince a couple of years ago

In my experience I had the following:

In the box will be the smooth spring and cover for the ratchet for a smooth collective stick.

The tx is supplied with the aircraft ratchet fitted.

Thanks Andy for the info! One curiousity, does your transmitter default to heli when creating a new model?

My transmitter creates a helicopter for a new model with a H-1 swash.

The menu displayed however would immediately allow you to change that.
