Futaba 3PK f/s

I have for sale a Futaba 3PK with the 2.4GHz Fasst system installed and two receivers.

I have had problems with thermal shutdown in the FASST receivers, but only in models with heatsources near the receiver. In my 808 for instance, the receiver is right beside the engine and I run an RB WS7 which thoroughly enjoys 240 degrees. The receiver has thermal'd on me after about 30 minutes of straight running in my 808. I drilled out the radio box to get air flow in, and that did solve the problem until I switched to lipo rx packs. Engine, battery and regulator all within inches of the receiver. I have never had a thermal cutoff in any other model. Losi 8ight, Baja 5B, CRC Gen X, Xray T2'008, Savage XL, etc.

You get:
Futaba 3PK with stock NiCD battery
2.4 GHz Module
2 FASST 2.4GHz receivers (One 603FS and one 603FF[FF has never gone into thermal shutdown for me])
Manual and box for both 3PK and the 2.4 module.

$200! Practically giving it away. The thermal issue shouldn't effect you unless your rx is mounted right beside the engine. I am at Hardcore every Sunday. Can also meet up or possibly deliver within a reasonable distance.
