So what started as an idle hobby and interest has now become an obsession. As of an hour ago, I became the owner of a spanky new Futaba 10CAG (airplane version and Mode 2) which is a bit nicer than the 8FG I was going to get- but this 10CAG came in a snazzy Futaba foam lined locking pro case (minus the receiver) and sold for $350... and since I would have spent that on the 8FG and then some, I feel pretty stoked at the bargain (long story on why it was so cheap, but let us just say a hobbyist passed away before getting to use it- RIP) Now- while I have skimmed over the threads and understand the basics on upgrading a radio for my Phantom, I lack a lot of the specifics and need to buckle down and get this right. I seek input and advice from the experienced pilots and hobbyists- especially those Futaba Freaks of the Phantom. Also- there is a lot of info on the 8FG and the 14SG... but I cannot find anyone using the 10CG for the Phantom- so anyone who might have some resources on an application please point me to it. I know I need to get a receiver- I am considering the R6014HS or R6008HS... is that not compatible? Better choice for my quad? I know I need a throttle centering spring- I see where others have emailed the north america rep and received them- I plan on following up after the weekend- any other places to get that? I know my Phantom v1.1.1 has the Naza V2 and the button inside for binding with a Futaba radio... I have not looked up the documentation to see what steps are needed- is there a good thread here I haven't found that details this? I am very comfortable swapping receivers once I decide on aa new one, I am also very confident I will be much happier with the new radio and I am glad I have very little time on the stock radio so I will not have established any comfort with it. I love the feel of the Futaba... **** nice radio. I lack confidence in programming the thing though... the manual is intimidating as hell! So, as I get this quad and radio together for holy matrimony, can I get a little counsel? All advice welcome... even smart asses.
