The Futaba T16SZ is a mid to high-end radio that finds itself standing out in the middle of the Futaba range. The T16SZ is a noticeable step up from the T14SG but brings in the DNA of its higher specification sibling the T18SZ. Packed to the brim with features (listed below) and with up to 16 channels on offer it is hard to think of any model that can't be setup with this stunning radio.
Navigating through the menu screens is simple thanks to the large 4.3" colour touch screen. Just like a mobile phone it is extremely responsive and does not need pressure to operate. To back up the screen there are also two physical buttons, one to open the menu and one to return.
To offer the most versatility the T16SZ is compatible with FASSTest, FASST, T-FHSS and S-FHSS systems. Using FASSTest and T-FHSS systems you can monitor numerous telemetry data in real time on the screen from Futaba's ever growing range of sensors (available separately). This means you can buy the right type of receiver to suit your model and budget.
A Futaba R7008SB is included in the box as the perfect matching receiver. The Futaba R7008SB is a FASSTest telemetry diversity receiver, capable of high-voltage use an operating up to 8 channels using the 8 standard PWM outputs or up to 18 channels (16 proportional + 2 digital) using the S-Bus port.
A 6 volt Ni-MH battery is included with 1700mAh capacity, plenty for most pilots. If you do want more capacity or a spare then you can also upgrade to LiFe for extended duration (P-FT2F2100B sold separately).
