Futaba 14MZ 2.4GHz Radio
I am listing this radio for sale as a big favor for a good friend of mine. He has not exactly consented to this sale - - but the radio is in my possession and you know what they say, "possession is nine-tenths of the law!"

This friend likes to show everybody that his radio is an .mp3 player. The lucky purchaser of this radio, therefore, will also acquire a collection of Jimmy Buffet songs pre-loaded onto the included memory card. Understandably this friend has been unable to show off any other capabilities of this radio (and therefore I cannot list any) because, while it is still toted as the flagship of Futaba's collection, all practical capabilities have been eclipsed by modern day entry level radios. That is, of course, unless you consider the OS crashing on your radio a feature, in which case the 14MZ has got something over all the others out there!

This radio comes with only one battery included, but the purchaser should be advised to acquire at least three or four more if the intent it to use it for more than five minutes at a time without having to recharge.

As a favor to the purchaser I will turn the radio on before placing it in the mail. If you are lucky (perhaps because delivery is delayed for bad weather), when the radio reaches you it will have finished booting up and be ready for use. Of course by then the battery will probably be dead and you will have to start all over. Oh well, what do you expect. After all, when you spend only $2,000 on a radio you should expect that you're going to have to make a lot of compromises!

As I stated above, my friend has not explicitly agreed to the sale of his radio. He did, however, leave it behind at a fun-fly this weekend and I have to believe that he subconsciously did it on purpose so that he can finally buy a real radio! I have seen this person browsing the JR forums and JR radio classified ads recently and it does not take a rocket scientist to put two and two together.

So, please help me help this individual out by purchasing this radio before I have to return it to him this weekend. Your act of pity and kindness will be rewarded by your knowledge that this person will finally be unburdened from his dinosaur of a radio and will be free to go out and buy the radio he really wants. Plus, if your iPod breaks you will now have a backup.

Good thing he will be out of town this weekend when I meet you to get it back. I wasn't sure he was going to make it home without that radio, thought for a minute I was going to have to turn around and go back.

Guys... Don't let him fool ya.... I think he pick the radio up and hid it from me. You see he was almost in the 14MZ club,he bought one then was so amazed by it he could not keep up with it. He try ed for a week and gave up. But he has the fever and it will not go away.
He know's he flew much better on the Futaba. He tells me "JR feel the diference" and then without thinking says Futaba "We are the diference" Maybe I should just let him into the club he never tasted and give him the radio. Milk-A-What

Thanks Tony - got the payment. Charging the battery for you right now - it'll go out tomorrow UPS 2nd day. As we discussed, make sure you set the timer for 3 minutes or don't fly more than 1/2 a tank at a time or the battery may die on you. Any don't worry if you get a blue screen of death - Futaba assures everyone that the radio will still transmit! Jimmy Buffet is going home.

Mark, you're welcome. I'll send you the money to put towards your JR radio purchase. I'm keeping a $100 for a finder fee.
