More from Shizuoka 2007


Futaba’s new MC850C ESC, pictured with the USB programmer adaptor for connection to your computer. Mentioned previously on this blog –


Futaba MC601C ESC – a budget version of the above, which looks to have a 10T motor limit so very handy. Price unknown to me right now.


Here is something totally new – BRUSHLESS servos from Futaba! Seem to be equivalent to the S9351 (which is a 1/8th servo) and the S9451 (a 1/10th servo). Remains to be seen what performance advantage they give, if any. Or what price they will be.

Futaba also showed a few 2.4GHz and synthesised FM parts too. FM is on the way out though, innit? Suits me, means I’ll have fewer crystal clashes on 40MHz!
