Futaba 12z is here

wow wasnt expecting this one i just opened this months issue of Model Aviation and see an ad for the Futaba 12z. only once did i hear any speculation on this but as i remember it was shot down as that just speculation. correct me if im wrong but did anybody else now this was comeing(other than Futaba employees) not only that but it looks pretty sweet too. I hope i wasnt just out of the loop on this one.

Does it do everything the 14MZ does?

Re: Futaba 12z is here

I don't think you can watch satellite TV like on the 14MZ,
and I'm pretty sure the back rub, and the auto plane washer features
were also reserved only for the 14MZ.

Re: Futaba 12z is here

Not that I can afford one, but I'm hoping that it is what it seems to be - a lot of really useful features with very user-friendly programmability, without some of the over-the-top gimmicks of the 14MZ. Not that the 14MZ isn't great, just too many expensive gimmicks for a lot of fliers. I would love to have the 12-channel.

Re: Futaba 12z is here

I have been playing with it since Tuesday. It is very nice, it programs totally different then the 9z. So far it is ok, I am not sure that I am doing a couple of things correct but I am getting the result that I want.

For any 14 Mz users I have a question. when you change your AFR in one condition does it change in all conditions? The 12MZ does.

I am one of the few that likes the way the 9z programs.

ch1 aile
ch2 elev
ch3 throttle
ch4 rudder
ch5 elev2
ch6 aile2

Tony,

It will change the AFR in all conditions unless you chnge the setting from "Group" to "SNGL"

How many digital channels does this radio have ???9,10 or 12???the 14 mz has 12....


Thanks, Dave
