    Ok - the rumor mill has it that the 1.3 has a dual antennae(which is does), and that the xmitter runs as a D-BUS( which it does)

    So - is it possible to bind the 1.3 Phantom w/Futaba controller?

    If it can be - any directions in doing so? - I keep reading about pressing a small button - which I have seem on the older Phantoms to re-bind a new xmitter in the event your old xmitter got ruined. Hopefully the same magic button on ver 1.3 Phantoms allow you to bind with Futaba...

    The answer is no. You would need a Futaba receiver that is compatible with the Futaba transmitter.
    Actually, that's not 100 percent true. "ORANGE" has lower cost alternatives available, but I don't have experience with them.
