Hey all.....

I just upgraded to the Futaba T16SZ radio which just shipped late DEC... I am looking forward to the additional programming versatility ( I keep sniffing the manual, anyone else do that?). I am a huge fan of SBUS and the whole HV system capability.

Which radio systems do you prefer? I used to be a huge JR fan in the '90's. I am disappointed in the recent trend of its demise, whether its real or not (JR is advertising its not going out of business lately).

< Sorry, accidentally deleted my original post>

I just received the new Futaba T16SZ radio, which was finally available late Dec. I have been a Futaba user for a few years now and I look forward to more programming flexibility. I am a huge fan of SBUS and using HV systems.

Which radio system do you like to use?

A long time ago I was a big JR user, as I though they were higher quality equipment than the other brands. It is sad to see that they are fading, either due to financial hardship and now due to consumer speculation that they are going away (JR has been advertising that they are not going out of business).

Spectrum has its own issues, like un-binding while using. I have witnessed this event myself.

Congrats! I will be interested in what you think of the 16SZ since I am considering on getting one.
