| Anyone have any details on this yet? There is nothing about it on Futaba's
| site and Tower only lists it as available in Late November.
They've been promising this module for a long time -- it's even been
found in catalogs. It was supposed to be out in October, then
Feburary, then March, then October, now November ... you get the idea.
Don't believe the hype until you have one in your hands :)
| A while back I had a conversation with a pilot who had the 9z and he said

My guess is that it's just like the Hitec Spectra module, and so the
answer would be yes. But it's just an educated guess, and I'm hardly
| Will it work with PCM and FM?
Having a general idea of how the radios work, my educated guess is
yes. I'm pretty sure of this. After all, the current modules work
with both PCM and PPM, why wouldn't this?
| Will it work with high and lo band receivers?
Almost certainly. Yes. It would be silly to make a synthesized
module that can't actually do the entire band.
| Will be worth Tower's quoted price of $99 since single freq modules
| for the 9c are $49.99.
Well, if you need three or more channels, yes. If not, probably not.
Still won't give you shift select like the Hitec Eclipse will, but
it'll almost be there. If it ever comes out ...
