Hello

I just switched from the JR 12X to the 12Z - acutally I got the radio yesterday...

What I can say is that I am very satisfied so far. The programming on the 12Z is much better and more flexible than on the JR. I have also had the 14MZ, and in my point of wiew the 12Z is better as I don`t like the physical dimensions of the 14.
I totally agree with your thoughts on the 10C - very plasticy indeed...

What I miss from the JR is the ultra solid feel. Metal just beats plastic, and even the 12Z feels a little plasticy compared to the 12X - the 14 even more so...

Good luck in your quest to find a new radio.

Tried planks, but after all, wood is best on the bonfire.

I think mine is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Still got the old 9ZAP though. The 12Z is much lighter.

I have a 12ZH and a 12FGH and for the money the FG is just as good. Now don't get me wrong i like the 12 Z much better because of the joystick but the programming is about the same and the feel is just the same. Just a tip. 12Z for me.

Thanks

I also had both the 12Z and the 12FGH. I really like both radios but I just sold my 12FGH, because the 12Z is more radio, if you know what I mean.

The 8FG is a 12Z/12FG "jr" that has the same gimbals and basically the same software in a fully integrated 2.4 system, fastest on the market when used with a Futaba HS rx, even faster than the 12Z and 14MZ. Worth considering at less than half the price.

hi bkervaski,

I have 12FG, sold it for 12Z. The gimbals in 12Z is the one with 14MZ. 12FG is not the same gimbals as 12Z, the feel is different. 8FG is even worse, only one bearing. But 8FG holds better in my hand and faster than 12 series. I'm going to buy 8FG for my helis, 12Z for planes and gliders now.

8FG's software is a down scaled or downgraded version of the 12 series too.

I believe the 8FG has 4 bearings on each gimbal just like the 12Z/14MZ ... I'll have to crack mine open to see, but they feel just like my 12Z except the collective has more travel distance.
