A number of sources have revealed details of this new flagship from Futaba...
 

Features a 1mp camera so you can take shots of your planes for the screen. 18 channels. Looks rather wonderful. Click on pic to stretch.

I thought the 14MZ could utilize pictures of your models, but  this has a built in camera?
Even more bling, and no doubt a price tag to match
Brings a whole new level of male jewellery as this video shows

I have used a 14MZ that a clubmate has, but TBH I found it extremely heavy - and as I don't like neckstraps, it was dead weight.
Mind you 18 channels on this one eh? - that should improve my flying no end LOL

Something tells me I will not be buying one, oh! It is the better half I can hear. What is that you are saying? I could have a very good holiday for the same cost, or a new designer label dress. But I hardly wear my dress dear, I explained, the colour is all wrong, so last year.
 
Well do you remember when you sold your childrens future for a glass transcription deck for your hi-fi? Now I have a better system in my kitchen, for 1% of the cost. Bahh! a waste of good money, your not having one.
 
What is wrong with Quantum system, you have in your work room.

It'll have an appropriate price tag I guess but perhaps shows the way regarding features we'll see on lower end radios in years to come.

I agree with you Ken, it lacks the quiet dignity of our 6 and 8 channel jobbies!
 
I wouldn't want one - Oh no, cheap and glitzie, a floozy of a Tx. No, no its no use trying to convince me - I reject it out of hand - it would be too sordid to even be seen with someone who has one. The Tx Del Boy would have.

PS I have to keep repeating this and convince myself of it - its the only way to stay sane! I will spurn it, I will spurn it, nobody needs 18 channels, nobody needs 18 channels, its just male jewellery, real fliers don't use stuff like that.............

Interesting to see that it's compatible with both FAAST and SFHSS. Hopefully they'll bring out mid-range units that'll handle both systems too.

I don't need 18 channels, I don't need 18 channels, I don't ne...

not too long ago, we were saying we don't need six channels, as we only ever use three! And the old old-timers only used one, but then the old old old-timers used no channels, and no radio, but they were fit from all that running!

I suppose the camera will be handy for those of us that have so many models ready to go, we cannot recall what they were called, - so match the picture with the memory setting, and - it will still go splat eventually!
