General requirement for radio to support head tracking: Your RC radio must be able to selectively assign trainer functions for the higher channels (ch5-8) in order to work. Many radios can do selective assignment but only on the 4 primary controls. Read your RC radio manual 1st before requesting support for your radio.
Known Supported radios:
- ezUHF (note ezUHF supports HT independently from the radio used, if your radio does not support HT, then can add HT via ezUHF
- Futaba: in general Futaba 7 series radios and above support the HT
- Futaba T8FG (see post #123)
- Futaba 10C
- Futaba 10cg
- Futaba 14mZ (must be in 8ch mode - see setup notes in thread)

Notes about this thread: I want to keep this thread as concise and clear as possible so that information will be easy to find. When new, useful information is posted in the thread I will incorporate it into the relevant primary or secondary threads and delete the original.
If anyone is using a radio not listed here and has information whether the head tracking is supported or not, please post for everyone's benefit.
Data cable specification attached. WARNING TO ANYONE ATTEMPTING TO MAKE YOUR OWN CABLE: The HT PCB can be easily damaged by accidentally applying voltage to the PPM line or vise versa, damage your radio. Fat Shark will not warranty any damage due to modified cables. Cables are inexpensive and in stock at most retailers.
