While the picture you've seen is a prototype, the buttons are there, look at the bottom of the silver portion of the trim, on the left and right sides; the buttons are easy to see.

Looks like a great radio.

Might make for a nice Q1 upgrade.

Great to see that Japan has taken the user input and implemented it into what looks like a very promising new tx.

Thanks for the info Steve.

I'm very excited.

The few things missing from the 8FGH all appear to be addressed in this radio!

Finally it sounds like the little improvments that were needed were heard and addressed and intigrated into yet another improved version. The switch spacing was the big thing that needed to be configured better for me. The other improvements are just a bonus. I am sold. Add to cart.

Futaba is no stranger to LiFE. Their OEM receiver packs are LiFE.

In order to be safe for an application such as a transmitter, you would have to have a ma counter to keep track of how many ma's per flight are used as a percentage of the packs capacity. You cannot use a voltage meter for the listed reasons, and I am sure that most of you would not care to keep track of ma's used per flght manually as we have to with LiFE receiver packs to determine charge interval. I would guess that Lipo was chosen for the 18MZ for this very reason.

The louder timer and shake would work for me. I hate the buzzer on my 10. I fly a jet and I had to buy a separate loud timer to take to the flight line so I don't run the beast out of fuel.

The one thing that I do see and don't like is where the trim for the throttle and elevator are located at. Looks like you would have to take your hand off or the stick to find the trim lever.

I'm not seeing what you mean. How would you trim the ele trim without taking your hand off off the throttle stick regardless of the ele trim's position? Similarly, how would you access the throttle trim while keeping your finger on the throttle stick and while keeping your finger on the ail/ele stick? The ele/throttle trim are positioned low so you can sweep your thumb under the stick to access the trim levers.

I would just love this to have adjustable sticks like on my 12Z. Having stumpy fingers is a pain sometimes and being able to move the sticks outwards makes a huge difference. I need a new tranny and this certainly ticks 99% of the boxes so far

I alwayas use the thumb on the side that I am adjusting. I guess on this one I would have to use the opposite hand.

I always land to put trim in. The B&W 18MZ should be along shortly, maybe next spring, and sell for $2K. This looks like a great radio for the price. But I still want SPLINE curves.

Can you please explain what a spline curve is. I have seen it in setup but never used it.

I think you would find that the trim levers are very easy to reach and quite comfortable to use. Of course, everyone's hands are different so I would always recommend getting your hands on the actual transmitter to assure it is comfortable for you.
