Can I bind Futaba T8J radio to Phantom 2
No. The T8J uses Futaba's S-FHSS protocol.
The Phantom 2's 2.4GHz receiver is DESST which is akin to Futaba's FASST.
You'll have to purchase an FASST Tx (or install a separate (S-FHSS) receiver to use that Tx).
Look up HPIGUY on you tube he has a vid on this .
Quite a few people are using the T8J
Like above you'll have to do little work to make it work .
No, as pointed out the T8J needs the S-FHSS RECIEVER install and validated.. If I remember correctly. As mentioned many videos on YouTube for the install. I found out the hard way realizing I bought the wrong remote, but still Happy with mine.
Do you get more flight distance with a futaba t8j or original dji phantom 2 transmitter??
From what I hear, original is very decent, I've personally managed 1,1 kilometers with my phantom 2 and T8J set up with no problems and a friend of mine did more than 2 kilometers with his T8J and F450 set up
Range is effected by many issues including frequency, environment, atmosphere, topography, etc. so anecdotal comparison is not really useful as a means of evaluating one brand or type or another.
