Wow. I have been purchasing Graupner radios, receivers, servos and controllers for about two years. But I have got to say I was really impressed when I opened the box and looked at this beauty. A radio this great at this price in unheard of. Especially when they include this great receiver. If you haven't done so already, give Graupner a try, you will not be sorry.

I've had problems with a competitors Tx and purchased the MZ -12 and have flown on it 5 times so far. I like the ease of set up and features the Falcon 12 includes. The Graupner usa folks do need to write a manual that is only one volume and in American English.

Awesome! I have been thru a number of Spektrum transmitters (Tx's), and I have owned two Taranis'. The Spektrum was to restrictive with it's programing and the range was always questionable. With no built in RSSI it was always a guess when it was going to start dropping signal. The Taranis was good in signal security and functions afforded to the user, but OpenTX was overly complicated and not at all intuitive, not to mention page format and layout changes were too frequent adding to the confusion. There were pitfalls as well. A value duplicated on two similar screens could yield reversed control trims. The MZ-12 Pro fits me: good range, intuitive programing within set boundaries that can be deviated from if the need should arise, great function for a great price point. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is Graupner's PC update program, its about as user friendly as a Taranis. In fact, I have yet to get it to recognize my TX. I guess nothing is perfect, but I wish they would spend the money and update that program. The MZ-12 pro feels modern but the PC software makes me feel like I've purchased an old HiTec radio.

The radio seems very good. I have been trying to get it set up for multirotors and the help from Graupner team has been great. At this time I would recommend it highly.

wow! what a great looking product .not only do you get the transmitter but the receiver also. the falcon 12. the only thing that I found at fault was the directions on cannels one through six. No where in the directions did I find what plugged into what. Had to ask on line. so I only gave it 4 stars. maybe somebody with more experience than me could figure out what to do. my lack of experience.
