FHSS is great, the best Futaba has done BUT.. to me its not worth the risk using a short range RX.

 

If it was me. I would use a full range RX.

 

Wish I had a better answer. (Some of the Futaba surface system are also short range, some of the car stuff)

Mike:

 

Do you think Tower or Great Planes would exchange them for the full range systems? If so, who should I contact?

 

Thanks,

 

Marty

For anyone buying one of these, you need to select the R2006GS Receiver to use in a boat  (for extra models that you are NOT using telemetry).   It has the correct range and the R2106GF doesn't have enough range and is designed for the cars.  I was able to send back the 2106's and ordered the 2006's which should set me up correctly.

The R2006gs receivers are bullet proof. I've been using them with my 8J for a couple years now in all carbon boats at long range, not a glitch.
