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 â which are also S-FHSS.
Powered by a 7.4V, 3500mAh Li-Po transmitter battery, the T18MZ is the first true 18-channel
Futaba radio system ever. It comes with an R7000SB telemetry enabled receiver, a high-voltage
design that operates up to 8 channels using the 8 standard PWM outputs or up to 18 channels (16 proportional + 2 digital) through the T18MZâs two S-Bus2 ports. That means a simpler setup and full support for S-Bus and S-Bus2 servos. As supplied the R7008SB receiver includes integral sensors for receiver voltage, signal strength and external voltage, with further separate sensors due to be available soon.
Slide a card in the inbuilt SD slot and you have ample capacity for unlimited updates, model memories and sound/picture files. Thatâs 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 Inch touch screen with 640x240 resolution which provides sparkling clarity on remarkably little power. Gentle finger pressure is all thatâs 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 âcurrent Inch. 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. Itâs more than a comfort/convenience feature; it allows you to customise your control setup for greater ease and precision.
