Tech Notes
This is the Futaba 6EX Heli Transmitter with the 2.4GHz FASST system,
R617FS 7-ch Receiver and four S3001 Ball Bearing Servos.


Futaba's FASST (Futaba Advanced Spread Spectrum Technology) shifts
very quickly virtually eliminating signal conficts and
interruptions unlike other 2.4GHz systems that only stay on one
or two frequencies
R617FS high sensitivity receiver weighs only 0.25oz (7g) without case
yet is a full range system for all aircraft from giant scale to
Park Flyer applications-no need to buy separate receiver for
specific aircraft
rubber grommets installed where antennas exit to eliminate stress
and fraying of the wires
Dual antenna diversity enables FASST system to automatically and
seamlessly select the best reception between the two antennas
built into the receiver ensuring that the aircraft stays under
constant control of transmitter regardless of altitude
Pre-Vision Packet Screening technology scans incoming data for
potential problems and applies sophisticated error correction
techniques for solid impenetrable link with model
Easy Link system features a unique ID code in the transmitter that
links to the receiver insuring that receiver only follows commands
from this transmitter-with over 134 million possible codes there
is no chance for a conflict
No hassle Fail Safe programmed through transmitter-no complicated
set-up steps or binding plugs
When performing a ground check, the Power Down function allows
modeler to reduce power from up to 50+ paces away-like retracting
the antenna on a conventional transmitter
Purpose built custom IC chips for key functions; no off-the-shelf IC
One year limited warranty
