I dont know... I can look into that for you but suspect its a one hit system. Save the transmitter.. replace the battery.

A fuse is not really something you want or need in the battery.

I have sold hundreds of LiFe 2S packs for every transmitter that Futaba makes that uses the LiFe packs and not a single issue ever.

Finally able to get a bunch of those packs for the Futaba transmitters in stock. They cost half of what Futaba packs cost and 400 more mah.

The Futaba pack is way too much money. https://www.amainhobbies.com/futaba-life-transmitter-battery-6.6v-2100mah-futuba0135/p646084

And then from the perceptive of Futaba.. They have a radio line product to support and its products and customers to protect.

Futaba recommends original Futaba products when using there systems but this is a recommendation. One is welcome to use ANY product they see fit.

Cost is relative.

Hey its happened to all of us. Maybe not to the point of fire. With end points set to a no bind point on both ends. I traced my issue to the fact carb slide gums up after sitting for a week. Servo starts pushing against something that doesn't Wana move,you get the point. Fix... cycle carb at the carb linkage, befor power up
