I was at the field yesterday when a member said that he had bought a Futaba 2.4 FASST. In the Futaba manual it stated that the R617FS should be wrapped in foam or a similar shock insulation material. Since that manual was published Futaba has said that the receiver should be kept cool and if possible, installed on its side.

He had found it difficult to install the receiver on its side.


I showed him how I installed my receivers which allowed air to circulate and be protected from shock at the same time. It is also very easy to remove the receiver when required. I thought that I might post a couple of snaps on our forum in case someone might like adapt the method for themselves. I suppose we all have our own ideas but here is my pennyworth.


NB. The intalled receiver in picture 2 is actually some 3/4" above the fuz floor. Difficult to see in the snap.

I should have said that the 'skateboard' mount is fixed to the fuz by elastic bands but I suppose that's pretty obvious from the snaps.
