!
You are saying it yourself You use update.....then upgradable.....2 very different meaning..

The only reason I post here is not because your a liar, but because your information was and is wrong, and you are also talking about the 32 about 3k TX to a sub 1K TX....never know the future I never say never to other Systems....but for now I do like what I have.

up·date
verb: update; 3rd person present: updates; past tense: updated; past participle: updated; gerund or present participle: updating
-make (something) more modern or up to date."security measures are continually updated and improved"

up·grade
verb: upgrade; 3rd person present: upgrades; past tense: upgraded; past participle: upgraded; gerund or present participle: upgrading
-raise (something) to a higher standard, in particular improve (equipment or machinery) by adding or replacing components.

Jescardin works for Futaba Spain and according to RCU rules he should have that stated in his signature. Obviously he doesn’t have.

- Then I am comparing apples and oranges, as DS12 is not the top Jeti radio; well the comment for my "lie" just read "all Jeti updates are free but, after all, it seems not to be so with, at least, the DS12.
With all this what I would like is people think twice before using big words, as I personally always try to do. And I must put clear that I am always open to learn and be instructed by others, but not to be called a liar when I know well -at least as well as manufacturer and distributors explain, as I have never owned a Jeti- about what I am talking about!
In all fairness, you are the one coming off with an attitude when they tried to explain, not them.

As far as I’m aware, the DS12 is the only transmitter on the market (except for the DS14 previously) that has “options” when you buy the transmitter. Just like options on a car. You want the fancy center console screen in your mini-van, cool, for an extra $1000 you can have it. If you bought the screen the “updates” to the software running it are free. Same with the radio, you buy options, then any software updates that come out are free from Jeti.

To tell HarryC to get “better informed” about anything Jeti is a complete joke, the man is so well informed about Jeti he makes extremely helpful videos. The videos are so good Jeti GAVE him a DS24 and said “Thanks! keep making videos”.

Any chance of getting this thread bak on track - some of us still want to hear about people's use of the 32MZ - not bickering about who said what !

I already informed you some time ago that that J. Cardin is my aunt and also an active R/C modeller in Spain. If I need to clarify it again to you -who seems to be very mind limited!- I would rather prefer going other way and taking other more serious kind of actions! Aside from this note, is not true any of my claims?

By the way and regarding to thread point, Futaba has just released the Spanish menus in the last T32MZ FREE software update. I will try this evening when back at home as I am curious about the result as I actually helped with that!

And "gapellegrini" is not worried about that kind of sponsorship not being stated on its signature? That says it all!

From now on my comments will be kept limited to the Futaba T32MZ and will leave aside the jeti-ities cries trying to compare their pizza-boxes with real radios.

Interesting... your “aunt” doesn't know spanish enough to help them? So they needed your help....

Great, maybe somebody with inside information can you tell us few things about Futaba? We are having really hard time justifying Futaba to customers. They just increased prices in USA, Futaba is now the most expensive system with most expensive receivers here in US. T16SZ went to $820.00 and R7108SB receiver to $200.00 :-(( How in Spain do you offer Futaba?

Has Futaba finally?
- Servo Balancers on all/any channels?
- Gyro Stabilization?
- Power Redundancy?
- Wireless ON/Off Switches?
- More than 16 proportional channels?
- Integration with receivers?
- Integrated Tx Gyros / Accelerometers?
- Receiver battery monitoring?
- Air Pressure Sensors?
- Flexible switch Tx layout?
....

The point is that there is not much to be said. I had a 18mz and saw personally a 32mz. Pretty much a 18mz with another screen. That’s it!!!

Very sad. I would say the fact that this is the only thread on this radio, shows that there are not any major new features offered in Futaba's new flagship radio.

sad. If you have a 18mz and are happy with it. Keep it. You don't need a 32.

Maybe if everybody “text bombed” his thread, he’d get the message and stay out of other radio brand threads

Well, I was just interested to see what others have found..

I have been a long time Futaba user after moving over from JR after loosing faith in the UK agent many years ago.
Changed to a 9ZAP, then 14MZ and 14MZ WC, then 18MZ - I still have my 18MZ WC as well as the 32MZ - all I can say is that it is a very different radio.

It feels completely different to the 18 - it's thinner, it's lighter and the software appears to be quicker to use.
The new software that is now starting to come through for it, looks like it will only work with the 32 with the newer system.

​​​​​​​Don't give a stuff about telemetry.
Being old school, we always took responsibility for using the right model memory and checking batteries before use.
​​​​​​​Certainly don't need to know where it is and what speed it's doing - I can see that.

Functionality is always the most important thing I look at, wether it be as a radio for the "work" environment or for my own personal use - nothing I have come across, has ever come close.

​​​​​​​I see many people putting the emphasis on toys and gimmicks, rather than actually understanding what the radio is capable of doing.

I am not sponsored and I buy my own equipment - I am very happy with mine thanks.

​​​​​​​Thats my views on this subject, so I won't bother to follow it anymore as it has changed away from it's intended use.

Interesting feedback. Your opinion is more valuable than mine since you have 18 and 32. Please tell us what you can do with the 32 that you can’t do with the 18?

I fly 18MZ and have been talking with two guys at our field that have both 18 and 32. After flying for several months their conclusion is they love the feel of the sticks better and battery life is better. One negative is that if used to the 18MZ the antenna on the 32 must be pulled out to get best signal to receiver

They tested airborne with antenna positions and telemetry devise that revealed results. 32 was better then 18 with antenna extended. This is not to say the 18mz is not good but that the 32 is better in comparison

Kevin,
does this mean that if the antenna of the 32MZ is NOT extended, it is "worse" that the 18MZ with the antenna "collapsed" ?

Correct The data showed at risk RF with antenna folded in on 32 MZ. Many more holds showed up

Thanks for info, very good to know! (I have a friend with a 32MZ, will warn him)

EDIT: Just talked with him, he has actually experienced this, with a total loss of signal to a model, he managed to run towards the plane and save it !!
After this, he extends the antenna 45 deg, and has not experienced any problem since then
