8FG Super
14-Channel Computer System
SEARCH:

"Super-sized" with more channels — and CGY750 gyro support!

The original 8FG was already the best 2.4GHz radio value available. Now, for the same cost, the 8FG Super offers six additional channels — plus new software with menus tailored to Futaba's super-fast CGY750 gyro. Recommended by Bobby Watts, Matt Botos and Kyle Stacy, it's the first radio that really supports flybarless helicopters. And it's perfect for all other applications, too...a smart choice for ANY forward-looking flier.

New 8FG Super features:

  • Expanded with 14 total transmitter channels — 12 proportional and two switched.

  • Included R6208SB receiver's PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) channels support up to 8 standard analog or digital servos — and it handles up to 18 channels when used with an S.Bus system.

  • Gyro menu supports 3-axis gyros and is perfectly tailored to the CGY750.

  • User menu allows pilots to customize and display frequently used functions.

  • VPP (Variable Pitch Propeller) compatibility can be set to three conditions for throttle and pitch curve.

  • Swash trim can be adjusted from the swash screen.

Continued from the original 8FG:

  • SensorTouch™ programming maximizes navigation ease.

  • Numerous factory-defined mixes help you program like a pro.

  • Low latency and cutting-edge 2048 resolution combine for fast, accurate Real-Time Response™.

  • Accepts 32MB to 2GB secure digital memory cards* — add as much memory as you want.

*Secure digital memory card not included

triple-axis gyro support
Features such as triple-axis gyro support and three gyro menus make the 8FG Super especially appealing to heli pilots.
spacer variable pitch props
The 8FG Super is not only compatible with variable pitch props, but can be set up to three conditions for throttle and pitch curve.
spacer supports flybarless helicopters
The first radio with menus for the triple-axis CGY750 gyro, the 8FG Super is the ONLY radio to truly support flybarless helicopters.

Swash trim
Swash trim can be adjusted easily from the 8FG Super's swash screen.
spacer customized user menus
Functions you use most often can be customized and displayed for fast, easy access.
spacer 14 channels
The 8FG Super makes 14 channels — and unmatched 2.4GHz FASST reliability — affordable for any pilot!

lengthened slider levers
While most of the 8FG Super's advances are found in its updated software, Futaba has also made small tweaks to the transmitter — notice the lengthened slider levers — for greater comfort and control.
spacer 8FG SensorTouch Pad
The SensorTouch™ dial — and a wide range of factory-defined mixes — help you program like a pro. Its touch-sensitive, wheel-style interface helps you navigate through menus with unprecedented speed and ease!
spacer trims
Switching from the normal timer to large timer display option helps keep you aware of time. It's perfect for pacing contest performances or simply keeping tabs on battery life!

swash mix menu
Separate swash type and swash detail menus help you fine-tune heli setups to performance perfection.
spacer trims
Trims set up with digital precision and accuracy. You can adjust by setting trim steps a specific value, or as a percentage of the total range — whichever suits your flying style best.
spacer neckstrap
The 8FG Super comes out of the box perfectly balanced for neckstrap support and fingertip control. A thin, narrow case makes it easier and more comfortable to grasp.

SD memory card
With the 8FG Super, how much memory you have is a matter of choice. 20-model memory is built-in, but the radio can accept secure digital memory cards from 32MB all the way up to 2GB. That's more than enough for virtually unlimited model setups and downloads of online software updates!
spacer 8FG LCD Screen
The big backlit LCD offers contrast and brightness adjustments, normal/large timer display options and a user-settable auto-off feature for conserving power.
spacer gyro screen
You can set a single gyro rate on the airplane menu, or as many as three. Changing the rate is as easy as touching a switch.

governor screen
On the heli menu, you can assign the gyro and governor functions to any switch or control — conveniences that are usually found only on high-end systems.
spacer conditions screen
The glider menu offers four "virtual" channels for mixing setups, as well as the opportunity to set as many as five conditions per channel!

R6208SB 2.4GHz FASST 8/18 Channel S.Bus High-Voltage ReceiverR6208SB 2.4GHz FASST 8/18 Channel S.Bus High-Voltage Receiver

The 8FG Super's R6208SB receiver accepts a wide range of batteries, from 4-cell NiCd and NiMH packs to 2S LiFe and LiPo packs, with no regulator required. PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) channels provide support for up to eight standard analog or digital servos. Using the S.Bus port, it handles up to 18 channels — and makes incorrect servo-channel hookups impossible. The R6208SB also features a high-speed mode that delivers ultra-fast frame rates on channels 1-6.

High-speed mode is available only on Channels 1-6 and requires the use of digital (including brushless digital) servos. Channels 7 and 8 — which operate only in normal mode — can be equipped with either analog or digital servos.
