The 8-channel Graupner mc-16 is our best entry-level tray radio. It comes with many settings, features and functions at an affordable price.  All switches and pushbuttons are freely assignable using the menu and large, traditional buttons on the transmitter.  The contrast-rich, 8-line, blue-lit graphic display ensures perfect display of all setting parameters and telemetry data even in bright sunlight. Telemetry data and 20 model memories can be stored on a micro-SD memory card and activated with spoken voice alerts allowing for seamless control of nearly any model. 

The quad bearing 4096 resolution gimbals were machined with high-precision and are adjustable for smooth and accurate flight control. Safe and worry-free flights are achieved with our HoTT (Hopping Telemetry Transmission) technology by hopping over 75 2.4 GHz channels to secure fastest, most reliable, interference-free operating channel.


Real-time telemetry is integrated in all our HoTT radio systems.  The mc-16 does not require any additional hardware for functions such as signal quality, temperature, or receiver voltage.  The included 8-channel and 6-channel receivers provide telemetry functions that can be configured to notify you regarding any system changes. Graupner provides a wide selection of telemetry ESCs, modules and sensors that can immediately connect directly to your HoTT receivers without the need for external hub boxes or complex wiring. Our third-party partners provide additional telemetry products that work seamlessly with your mc-16 HoTT radio.

Telemetry functions and notifications can be easily assigned to switches to provide information about battery voltage, battery capacity, altitude, flight direction, speed, etc.  This is integral in increasing your situational awareness and adding extra flight safety. The real-time, bi-directional HoTT transmission protocol will constantly monitor system health and notify you of any changes to the system.  No more surprise situations such as sudden battery depletion or accidentally flying out-of-range! During flight, important data is logged on the SD memory card which can be analyzed to improve your system's reliability and performance.


It is important to all of us at Graupner that you make good use of your investment in our products.  All our HoTT products (receivers, flight stabilization systems, ESCs, multirotor flight controllers, flybarless controllers, etc.) are designed to be compatible with one another regardless of the transmitter being used. This unified technology standard will ensure the same operation and user experience across all devices, making our products future-proof for new developments.  The USB connection allows for free firmware updates through the Graupner Upgrade Studio.

Our wide selection of HoTT flight controllers for flybarless helicopters, airplanes and multirotors will further enhance the usability of your mc-16, providing endless opportunities to discover all the radio has to offer.

Our Wireless Trainer Link allows the mc-16 radio to be used with any other Graupner HoTT radio in Student/Teacher Mode, allowing everyone to learn or teach about the exciting experiences this hobby has to offer.

Great quality
Used to have a Graupner system when I was a teenager in Germany. This is the first Graupner Transmitter I have purchased since. First impression I have, the quality is still there. I started reading the huge manual, I mean huge, and setup a basic boat profile. I am going to use this mainly for the Krabbe Ton kit. Comes with two receivers which is awesome. I might end up using the transmitter for my planes and helicopters also. Keep up the quality, Graupner. Really starting to like this Transmitter.

Nice radio. When I received it, the LCD display had somehow come loose out of its mount. Thought it was broken. Taking the back cover of the radio off allowed me to carefully remount the display that is held in place by 4 screws. All works fine now.
