Futaba 16IZ 2.4GHz 18 Channel FASSTest Radio System (Heli)
I usually buy Spektrum radios and have always overlooked the Futaba radios. Maybe I was intimidated by how sophisticated they looked, not quite sure. I finally purchased my first Futaba helicopter radio, the 16IZ 18 channel transmitter. When I did the unboxing and saw how nice it really was, I knew I may never go back to Spektrum. Well, for the time being anyway. Right away I was drawn to the bright touch screen and the vast adjustments that await my input. The manual is well laid out, the fold away antenna is pretty cool and it just looks really, really nice all around. I would highly recommend this transmitter to anyone looking for a high end radio at an affordable price.
