Re: RADIOS WHICH BETTER JR 10X OR FUTABA 12Z

The 12MZ has more features since it is newer. You can assign switches on the 12Z to what ever you want and you have servo grouping, so no need to use a match box. If you compare the price, the 12Z is obviously more expensive. You should also consider the 12FG which has all the same functionality, but will only set you back $1000 USD.

I've owned a 14MZ, 12FG, and 10X. I like them in that order as well.

Re: RADIOS WHICH BETTER JR 10X OR FUTABA 12Z

Saludos Luis. Yo compito en IMAC y utilizo un 10X. Para mi es el mejor radio ahora, y el mas facil de programar. El 12Z tiene un poco mas de funciones, pero las cuales ni yo necesito. Tambien los receiveres de JR son mucho mas confiables. El 10X tiene touch screen haciendolo todo aun mas facil. En realidad el radio es un insulto a la inteligencia humana jajajaja.

Cualquier pregunta me dejas saber. O si necesitas ayuda con tu nuevo avion.

Vic

The Futaba 12 will offer quite a few more functions. Like mentioned above the Futaba can servo group. So now you can stick all your aileron servos into different channels and they are each fully controllable to allow bind free movement. Your also getting a radio that will allow you to fly a helicopter without buying the heli version. One of my favorite functions of the new Futaba's is they are updatable by download. So any time some new feature hits you can download it for free on the net. There are many more features still that I have not mentioned. G3 2048 resolution!

The 12Z is an awesome radio. But if you really are thinking JR, wait for the 12X. The 10x is old technology.

Seems a lot of top pilots like ''old technology''. Like QQ, for instance.

Re: RADIOS WHICH BETTER JR 10X OR FUTABA 12Z

current speculation is that the 12x will be out in the spring. From what I've read so far, it still does not top the futaba radios in terms of features. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

No problem. Cuenta conmigo. Yo soy de Caguas, si que estamos cerca.

Con gusto te puedo mostrar mi 10X para que veas que bueno es.

72 mhz esta bien. Nunca en 6 anos he perdido un avion por culpa de eso. Necesitas un radio PCM, eso si.
