Question Futaba 7CHP?

I want to buy a &chp radio for my esky belt cp.
Do I need to buy a receiver or will the esky do for now?
And do I need to buy digital servo to use the sub trim?
thanks for reply.

Hi Tarzan,
With questions regarding radios in particular, it really helps to know where in the world or er- jungle you are
If you are in North America and are on 72Mhz, then there is the shift issue to consider, Futaba uses negative shift PPM/FM, I have no idea what Esky uses, but to use a Futaba transmitter with that receiver it must be negative shift.
What kind of servo you use has nothing to do with being able to use features on the transmitter, the only difference is in precision and ability to hold position more accurately under flight loads.
Good luck,
Pete

You should be good to go then, you just have to make sure transmitter and receiver are on the same channel.
Good luck,
Pete
