What options for Tx/Rx do I need to look at?

    Scott it doesn't handle PWM at this time. Both Spektrum and Futaba use a single connector with multichannel receivers.

    Gary... I believe my JR DMSS radio will handle PWM and thru the JR Xbus serial connection... may need the pwm converter. Is there something more proprietary to the FF Movi interface that precludes using the others?

    Scott all I know is that the MoVI handles the Spektrum satellite recievers and Futaba sBus receivers. There aren't any other input types currently available.

    FYI- I bought one of the new Futaba transmitters that have telemetry. The 10J that uses the T-FHSS system. I didn't realize this was not compatible with the FAAST system, and the telemetry receivers are also not compatible with the MoVi. Luckily I swapped the 8FJ that was on the copter for the MoVi and now use the new radio to fly. I wanted lots of extra channels for follow focus and 3 chan LANC camera control so the futaba seemed like a good choice.

    Freefly is aware that there is something about the way sBus is implemented on the Telemetry receivers that make them unusable. I find it strange that FHSS and FASST aren't the same at least on the sBus ports.

    Marco there are threads on using an AR6210 as a second RX. Search on AR6210.
