I'm thinking about getting one to replace the Futaba 12FG I've been using since 2008 as I can still use all of the Futaba receivers I have with the Futaba 16SZ. The 12FG has been rock solid but I would like to take advantage of new features and advances that have been made since the 12FG was available.

Being released here in the US in July. Not sure what the overall release schedule is for other locations. This is the newest radio from Futaba.

Tower members have a $75 off $499 coupon. takes it down to $624.99

not bad at all. Alot of radio for $625

If you don't need the7008SB receiver it comes with, you can sell that off for $80 to $100 and reduce the price of entry down even farther.

Hopefully this thread doesn't become the sh*t show the other one did. Seems like a good price for what is being offered. If I didn't already have an 18sz I would be looking hard at this one.

I actually enjoy the crap the blithering inane idiot posts on the other radio threads. Hard to believe the manufacturer allows it but he's fun to mess with.

I hope not but if he does I would expect those in power to make him gone for good. I for one am sick of it...

As I thought you already had the 18, I am curious:
Will the 16sz offer any new features not currently available on the 18sz?

Judge is a TX nut

Besides, in order to provide effective assistance to you and I both online and at the field, he and others need to own and use one.

I doubt it. My motivation is to have the radio for general sport use, etc. and also because actually having the radio in my hands and using it myself makes it easier to give effective help to other owners. (just saw CryHavoc's post. So what he said )
