Default futaba 14mz Stick question

I have seen several large tray type transmitters that have tiny switches on the main sticks. I saw the futaba 18mz also has this ability where one can retrofit these type of switches on the main sticks. I was wondering if the same is possible on a 14mz?

thanks in advance.

Not as far as I have seen. I have also not seen this as possible for the 18MZ either. If you see a reference to "stick switches" many times what that means is that the stick position can be used to turn a condition, mix, etc. ON/OFF. But neither radio can have a physical switch wired into the sticks on the gimbal, at least not that I have ever seen or heard of.

I saw this at jet power at the robbe stall. The tiny sticks on top of the 
Main sticks were fully functional ones. They were three positio
 Switches to control flaps etc. So on 18 I know it works. Don't know about the 14.

Sounds like a Robbe thing. They do that a lot. I'd contact them to see if they can do it on a 14MZ. I know that Hobbico/Futaba USA does not do it for either radio.

Here's the Robbe page:

Lists the 14MZ as one model it works with.
