I'm quite sure Futaba does not make a system similar to the Powersafe Spektrum (link toFutaba 2.4), but just dual A123, separate switches, into separate ports into any Rx would be best IMO. With today's powerful servos, only one good servo per surface is needed (possibly two for rudder), no regs, matchboxes or power boxes needed in 100c or below aircraft. Simple and light, with plenty of redundancy.

My current 50cc Yak has 2 lipos, regs, and switches into Receiver.... My 35% will be two A123, JR Powersafe, one servo per surface. that's it!

Check the Futaba web site you will see the entire line up of product.

One thing to install is a ignition cut off that makes the power to the ignition stop if there is a batt. failure to the rec.
