Futaba Skysport 6A Channel Radio system - Brand New
Futaba's excellent line of reliable radio systems are perfect for use in R/C submarines.
Each radio is brand new in the original box and come with servos and receiver on matching frequencies. Boxes may show sign of wear due to the system's age, however all radios are brand new, never used.
6 individual channels allow for control of the basic submarine functions (throttle, rudder, dive planes, ballast system) plus two extra channels for features such as lighting, sound, periscopes, torpedoes or any other feature imaginable.
NOTE: Due to availability, product may be different than pictured above. Comes with all components shown in photos above. 75mhz frequency.
A Note About R/C Submarine Radios
Due to the evolution of surface craft radios toward the 2.4 and 5.6Ghz frequencies, manufacturers have discontinued the production of the older 72 and 75mhz systems.
Unfortunately, these higher frequency radios, while excellent for surface and air craft, are not compatible with our need for penetration of water.
We have secured a limited supply of these lower-frequency radios and they will be sold on a first-come, first served basis. A limit of two systems per customer per transaction will be enforced unless other arrangements are made.
While the traditional frequency for aircraft of 72mhz work exceptionally well for submarines, they are technically not allowed for use in surface (or underwater) craft by the FAA. Buyers may use them at their own risk.
