It's here...and it's everything modelers want in a full-range 2.4GHz system! Futaba has been using Spread Spectrum technology for nearly 15 years in industrial R/C applications, so they have the dedicated engineering staff with 2.4GHz expertise. Unlike other manufacturers who started offering 2.4GHz for hobby R/C models using off-the-shelf IC chips, Futaba invested in extra research and development - resulting in a system that uses a custom IC chip that's ideally suited for the unique demands of R/C modeling. When you discover all the advantages of Futaba's 2.4GHz FASST system, you'll see that it was worth the wait!

The 2.4GHz FASST system: offering the highest levels of performance, convenience and "peace of mind" for airplane AND heli flyers!

What makes Futaba's 2.4GHz system different?
  • Channel Shifting - Means that interference is virtually impossible. Futaba's system only occupies an individual frequency for 2 milliseconds!
  • Stronger, More Robust Link - Futaba's system doesn't need redundant receivers. Instead, it uses a combination of Channel Shifting and Dual Antenna Diversity (DAD) to provide a robust, highly dependable link between transmitter and receiver.
  • Pre-VisionTM - Looks ahead for potential problems when scanning incoming data and applies sophisticated error correction techniques - resulting in a system that gives the user a solid, impenetrable connection with his model.
  • Custom-Developed Technology - Futaba uses custom IC chips that have been designed specifically for radio control. With over 30 years of R/C system experience, Futaba knows it's important to make the investment in research and development to assure quality, reliability and safety. The FASST system is a result of extensive development and testing and it's the only system good enough to carry the Futaba name.

Convenient, Worry-Free Operation
Now you can enjoy the convenience of 2.4GHz operation with the quality and reliability of Futaba! No more worry about someone accidentally turning on another system on your frequency. You can fly anywhere - flying field, neighborhood park, schoolyard - without concern for conflict with another nearby radio system. And at the flying field there's no more waiting for your frequency clip to become available... just turn it on and fly!

Compact, "all-in-one" R617FS receiver
The small, but powerful one-piece R617FS can easily control giant-scale models, but is small enough (just 7 grams without case!) for park flyers. The competition's full-range system includes a bigger, two-piece receiver. A smaller receiver must be purchased separately for park flyers.

Continuous Channel Shifting
Unlike other 2.4GHz systems that stay on one or two frequencies (leaving the potential for interference), the 2.4GHz FASST shifts every two milliseconds, so signal conflicts and interruptions are virtually impossible.

Pre-VisionTM Packet Screening Technology
Scans the incoming data to look ahead for potential problems and apply sophisticated error correction techniques. The result is a system that gives the user a solid, impenetrable link with his model.

Dual Antenna Diversity (DAD)
Which means the system seamlessly selects the best reception between two receiver antennas, so there's no loss of signal, regardless of the plane's attitude.

The Easy LinkTM system
The 7C transmitter has a unique ID code that, after linking with the R617FS receiver, assures this receiver will only follow commands from this transmitter. Set it and forget it! Just push the recessed button on the receiver and it will never forget the unique transmitter ID code, which locks this receiver to the transmitter. And with over 134 million possible codes, there's no chance for a conflict.

Higher sensitivity
Which enables you to stay in complete control of your model, even at greater distances. It also offers greater signal selectivity, which prevents unwanted interference.

A "no-hassle" Fail Safe system
The 2.4GHz's Fail Safe is programmed right through the transmitter, just like on conventional systems. Other radios require a complicated six-step process to set up their Fail Safe, along with a separate binding plug that can easily be misplaced.

Custom 2.4GHz IC chips
Futaba's own custom IC chips are backed by 15 years of 2.4GHz experience in industrial R/C uses, and are "purpose built" for R/C systems. Some manufacturers rely on off-the-shelf IC chips, without the custom application development that only Futaba's vast experience can provide.
