The original Futaba 18MZ set completely new standards when it was first released, with innovative features, super fast colour touch screen, amazing functionality, extended operating times, highly advanced mixing options etc.
The new WC version celebrates multiple World Championships won by pilots using the 18MZ, and the transmitter is now chrome plated, as well as adding the T-FHSS transmission protocol alongside the existing S-FHSS, FASST and FASSTest protocols.
It also of course includes all of the software upgrades that benefited the 18MZ, and is ready to accept future updates as they become available, ensuring that the 18MZWC is always at the cutting edge of high end radio control - it will be the radio of choice for all of those flying advanced aircraft or helicopters, and requiring the ultimate model radio control system.
Immerse yourself in a product so revolutionary that it has the potential to change the way 2.4GHz
systems are designed. Combining the Futaba legacy with an 18-channel system is probably more than enough to make long-time fliers want to buy one. However, the T18MZ also offers the latest and best chapter in Futaba's 2.4GHz developments: new FASSTest (Expanded System Telemetry) technology, whilst also being able to operate on FASST and S-FHSS transmission systems, enabling all Futaba 2.4GHz aircraft/helicopter receivers to be used as well as all the forthcoming Ripmax FTR (Futaba Transmitter Ready) models - which are also S-FHSS.
Slide a card in the inbuilt SD slot and you have ample capacity for unlimited updates, model memories and sound/picture files. That's especially pleasing, since the T18MZ has a built-in 0.3M megapixel camera eliminating the need for a digital camera or mobile phone; just point the T18MZ, click and you have a foolproof picture ID of your model in seconds. The transmitter includes a big, brilliant and backlit 6" touch screen with 640x240 resolution which provides sparkling clarity on remarkably little power. Gentle finger pressure is all that's needed for fast, easy navigation and programming.
Popularised by the T14MZ software updates for the T18MZ will available online providing a fast and easy way to keep your system "current". It features a built-in USB Port which can be utilised to connect a memory stick, keyboard or mouse or to download telemetry data to your PC or laptop for storage and reference.
The in-built S-Bus programming system allows the T18MZ to be used whilst setting up a model with S-Bus servos, removing the requirement for a laptop and CIU-2 interface and thus simplifying setups. First introduced on the T14MZ, the adjustable gimbal angles feature has proven so popular that it was included on the 18MZ, as well. It's more than a comfort/convenience feature; it allows you to customise your control setup for greater ease and precision.
The functions outlined here are just the tip of the iceberg - making the Futaba T18MZ a must have for any serious pilot!
Futaba R7014SB FASST/FASSTest Rx 2.4GHz Included
The R7014SB is Futaba's flagship receiver brimming with the specifications required in high end models. With 14 PWM channels its built to meet the demands of high-end modellers. For extra versatility the R7014SB is also capable of operating with FASST or FASSTest systems so it can be used with older transmitters or the latest telemetry enabled models. Using the built-in S.Bus technology it is capable of both S.BUS and S.BUS2 operation. The diversity aerials give the best possible signal and allow you to mount the aerials in different axis for the best reception available.
