Seeing that the 14mz was 2k and the 18mz was 3k, I’ll take he over! Lol. But there is always hope.

there are more competitors but there are also more rich men in the USA
as mentioned by Zeeb the hobby is such a small part of Futaba business, the sales volume doesn't make any difference to them

18MZ - 2011 = $3000
18WC - 2016 = $3000
32MZ - 2019 = ?????

could just be my perception but this doesn't look as well built as the 18mz does.

Also, where are the dials? There might be one on each side of that top screen and I do like the addition of the timer screen, but I just don't see 32 channels...Unless the back side looks like an old graphic equalizer with a bunch of sliders.

thinking about it, there must be fully proportional channels linked to the standard controls so that you can add a bunch of servo's to each surface and not have to use a splitter, a smart fly board, etc. like 4 independent channels for ele, ail, rudder, and perhaps 2 or 4 for things like flaps, airbrakes, slats, etc..but then again, Futaba is sbus2, so you'd have to go full boat SBUS2 wiring, servo's, hubs, etc to get all 32

For the average single 7014sb receiver install, I see 12+2 with the 2 dig ports used for direct power input.


I could see 24 available when you use two 7014SB recs with PWM servo's linked in the radio with two ports on each receiver set aside for power input.

Wonder what new receiver is due out to go hand in hand with the TX?

My prediction, not really based on anything:

It will have the aluminum gimbals introduced on the 70th anniversary SZ.
It will have switches, mixing, and voice alerts, that can be activated from telemetry values.
It will introduce a completely new air protocol that will be for long range use.
It will be capable of running Open Tx.
