The simplest and most advanced 6-channel system available for BOTH AIRPLANE and HELICOPTER!!

The original was a revelation of affordability, proven performance and programming ease, created to ease the transition from 4-channel sport systems into 6-channel computer systems. Today's system offers the original's appeal, 6EXAS and 6EXH enhancements and the revolutionary, interference-free performance of the 2.4GHz FASST System.



Standard Programming Functions :

  • Model Select – six model memory.
  • Model Type – select airplane or heli programming in one transmitter.
  • Servo Reversing – on all six channels.
  • Dual Rate/Exponential – for ailerons, elevator and rudder.
  • End Point Adjustment – fine-tunes servo throws on all six channels.
  • Digital Trim – stores trim settings for each model for aileron, elevator, rudder and throttle.
  • Fail Safe – a safety throttle setting in case of loss of transmitter signal.
  • Battery Fail Safe – moves the throttle to a preset position when the airborne pack reaches 3.8V.
  • Stick Mode – choose from Mode 1 through 4.
  • Range Checking – Power Down reduces transmitter output power for up to one minute, allowing range checking from 50 paces away.
  • Changeable Throttle Stick – select ratchet for airplanes or smooth for helis.
  • Adjustable Stick Length – choose the length that suits your flying style.


Airplane-Specific Programming Functions:

  • Wing Mixing – for flaperon, flap trim, V-tail and elevon.
  • Trainer System – with the transmitter as either the master or student system. Compatible with other Futaba systems.
  • Throttle Cut – pre-programmed for safely shutting off the engine.
  • Programmable Mixing (1 & 2) – two different mixes allow any two channels to be combined.

Helicopter-Specific Programming Functions:

  • 5-Point Normal and Idle Up Throttle/Pitch Curves.
  • Throttle Hold – for autorotation.
  • Revo (Revolution Mixing) – mixes rudder and pitch together.
  • Gyro Mixing – two gyro gain settings can be programmed and selected during flight.
  • Swash to Throttle Mixing – corrects slowing of the engine's speed caused by the swashplate.
  • Swashplate Types – choose from 1S (independent aileron, pitch and elevator servos linked to the swashplate), 3S (120° CCPM), or 3E (90° CCPM).
  • Swash AFR – Adjustable Function Rate, for use with 1S, 3S or 3E swash types.


The heart of the FASST system is the R617FS receiver: there's no other 2.4GHz receiver like it!

R617FS Receiver Features::

  • High sensitivity receiver weighs only .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
  • A full range system for all aircraft from giant scale to Park Flyer applications-no need to buy separate receiver for specific aircraft
  • Simple one-touch binding - no plugs to mess with or lose
  • Dual Antenna Diversity allows 2.4GHz FASST Futaba transmitter to select the best reception between the two receiver antennas with signal loss
  • Rubber grommets installed where antennas exit to eliminate stress and fraying of the two antenna wires
