Best radio on the planet, BUT the new 10C is pretty good itself and for only $599, what a deal.

west-wot,

Save some money and get the 12Z. Functionality and quality the same as the 14MZ but without the color screen, touchscreen and built-in MP3 player.

10C is a bit of a step down but has a great value/price. You can also use your 9C CAMP module to tranfer aircraft setups to the 10C.

West-Wot,

Is the 14mz worth it ? - Yes, - if it's what you want.
I have one and I think it's great.

The 12Z is on a reduced deal price in the UK, because they don't sell !

The 12FG is very good value for money and it still output's 14 channels.

The 10C is also a great radio for the price.

In the end it's your choice of what you want to buy.

If you want to know more about prices send me a pm.

I have the 12Z, a friend has the 14Z. The 12 is by far the easier transmitter to use and program etc. I just love my 12Z.

I got a 14MZ. I love it. The 12z is nice. The battery lasts longer in the 12z. The 14 and the 12 are about the same as far as programing. The radio are different but one is not harder than another. I have used both. They both have the dual ball bearings. If you are going to fly the 14 and 12 gimbles will not disapoint. The 10 is a good value, but is not a 12 or a 14. If you are going to fly on 72mhz tham you can pick up G3 receivers for cheap. The last one i bought was 100 shipped. The plus side to getting any one of the radios listed is the 2048 resolution. It makes the heli really feel locked in. If you have the money look at the 14 and the 12. Play with both and think about it. ask guys at the feild. you can not go wrong. good luck.
