If the sheer number of things you can do with the 18MZ is impressive, the number of ways it offers you for doing them is nothing short of awe-inspiring. There's software for airplanes, helis and gliders, eight flight conditions and ten programmable mixes for each as well as numerous factory-programmed mixes. Plus more features than you'll probably use in a lifetime of flying.

If that's true, the obvious question is, "Why include them?" The answer is simple: it's because no two pilots set up a radio in exactly same way. The reason the 18MZ offers such unparalleled setup and performance versatility is so it can be set up in the most important way of all: yours.

R7008SB Receiver Memory Card Slot

With the high-voltage R7008SB, your servo and channel choices are wide open.

  • Use up to 8 channels with standard PWM outputs — or —

  • up to 18 channels (16 proportional + 2 switched) through two S.Bus ports, and enjoy S.Bus setup simplicity and programmable performance.

The 18MZ comes with 92MB of internal memory, but also includes a slot for secure digital cards, which gives you effectively unlimited memory capacity. It's compatible with standard 32MG-2GB or high-capacity 4GB-32GB cards.

Digital Camera Touch Screen

Built-in 0.3 megapixel digital camera makes taking aircraft ID pictures fast and simple.

The 6" diagonal (152 mm) HVGA touch screen offers 640 x 240 definition and adjustable backlighting for outstanding visibility. SensorTouch technology lets you navigate and program with speed and ease.

USB Ports Serial Interface

Two USB ports offer easy ways to connect to a keyboard or mouse, download and storage telemetry data or access setups stored on an external memory stick.

This serial interface offers the same convenience as the stand-alone CIU-2. It's ideal for programming GY520 and CGY750 gyros, as well as S.Bus and S.Bus2 Servos.

Memory Card Slot LiPo Battery

Stick angles adjust easily, to tailor the 18MZ's feel to your hand.

The 18MZ comes with a 7.4V, 3500mAh LiPo transmitter battery. Provides power for up to 6 hours of uninterrupted flying.

Easy Link ID Shoulder Switches

With Easy Link ID, you can link the transmitter and receiver with a tap on the touch screen.

Generous spacing between shoulder switches leaves room for your fingers to rest.

Switch Block Inside of Transmitter

Removing one screw frees the entire switch block. Individual switches can be unscrewed for easy replacement or moved for a custom setup.

Look inside the 18MZ, and you'll see the Futaba's commitment to dependability at every turn, from the use of surface mount technology to minimize the effects of vibration to Ball Grid Array to pack the most radio in the least space.

Jacks Memory Card Slot

Jacks for S.Bus servo programming, in-transmitter recharging and the earphone are located on the back panel for easy access and protection.

The high-voltage R7008SB is compatible with all Futaba telemetry sensors, as well as S.Bus and S.Bus2 servos. Both can be plug directly into the R7008SB, without the interface boxes and decoders required by other systems.*

* Decoder required if non-S.Bus servos are used.
