SEE IT, HEAR IT, TOUCH IT


Bright colors, voice announcements and a TFT touch screen is what makes the Graupner mz-24 PRO one of the most versatile radios on the market, and at a price that can’t be beat! Experience a new level of connection between you and your model with 12 channels and built-in real-time voice telemetry. Colorful menus and displays make usability easy to navigate through the menus and setup options with the touch of your finger or a stylus. Traditional navigation keys provide an old-school experience if you prefer to push physical buttons.

The aluminum 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 the most reliable, interference-free operating channel. The red highlights adds a beautiful splash of color around the control sticks adding style to your gear.


REAL-TIME TELEMETRY

Real-time telemetry is integrated in all our HoTT radio systems. The mz-24 PRO 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 mz-24 PRO HoTT radio.

Add situational awareness and extra safety by easily assigning switches to telemetry functions and notifications to provide information about battery voltage, battery capacity, altitude, flight direction, speed, etc. 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.

PROGRAMMABLE VOICE ALERTS


Configure any switch or control on the mz-24 PRO with a wide selection of voice announcements. Set up countless announcement combination options based on your flying needs and airplane conditions with flight-dependent voice triggers. Record your own messages to customize your experience by downloading the free Graupner Firmware Update Studio Program!

LOGICAL SWITCHES


Control your model in every conceivable condition with logical switch positions or controls, adding a new dimension of control to the way we fly our models. For example, set up a logical switch that will not allow your gear to come down unless you have your flaps in the landing position. The AND/OR switch combinations are limited only by your imagination.

SERVO SEQUENCER


Set and save a series of up to nine timed events with the three-channel servo sequencer. With the flip of a trigger switch you can retract landing gears, open/close gear doors and have your pilot turn and wave to your adoring fans.

AUTO TRIM AND STEP


It's easy to trim your airplane, especially during its first flight! Just fly your airplane at level attitude and trigger the auto trim switch. The mz-24 PRO will automatically set the trims on your airplane. Freely assign the auto trim function to any switch for maximum flexibility during flight. The mz-24 PRO provides additional options for controlling trim settings, resulting in a perfectly trimmed model.

WIRELESS SETUP


Need to reverse your motor direction, setup your flight controller or make receiver settings? The mz-24 PRO radio can easily setup, program, and change all Graupner HoTT products remotely, eliminating the need for cables, computers or programming boxes!



SIX MODEL TYPES


Airplanes, sailplanes, helicopters, multirotors, boats, cars...the mz-24 PRO supports all model types! Each has been specially programmed with different menu function specifications unique to that particular model. Further enhance the model with assigned voice triggers using specially uploaded (or custom tailored) files.



INTEROPERABILITY


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, ensuring the same operation and user experience across all devices. Your model is future-proof against new developments with this unifying technology standard.

Enhance the usibility of your mz-25 PRO with our wide selection of HoTT flight controllers for flybarless helicopters, airplanes and multirotors. Graupner is committed to providing endless opportunities for you to discover all the mz-24 PRO has to offer.

Our Wireless Trainer Link allows the mz-24 PRO radio to be used with any other Graupner HoTT radio in Student/Teacher Mode, allowing everyone to learn or teach exciting experiences about this hobby.

MZ-24 Pro Upgrade
I really like the Graupner transmitter and the ability to upgrade. The instructions on the website were very good and I followed them to the letter. During the final upgrade, it stalled and locked up not allowing me to finish. I called tech support and talked to Doug. He was fantastic. Very patient and was able to explain and walk me through the emergency procedure. He must of spent close to 3 hours with me over two days. I cannot say enough about the support that Graupner and especially Doug gave me. I am a confirmed user of Graupner products and think they are the best in the market.

J’ai mis à jour ma MZ-24 dans les premières heures de la mise en ligne. Aucun problème depuis chez moi au milieu de la France. Les vidéos d’aide sont bien faites, il suffit de les suivre. Les modèles en mémoires sont toujours opérationnels et pas de default constaté. J’apprécie particulièrement les messages vocaux attribuables aux différents commutateurs et la nouvelle gestion du chronomètre 1. Bref que du positif, je recommande. Sylvain

I had been eager to get this upgrade. It was a low drama process as the videos were very clear about the simple steps necessary and even explanations of why they were required. I suggest watching the videos first before the real run. Make sure you have a good internet connection with no interruptions. The voice has changed to a different girl. She sounds nice too. I did not have to modify my model parameters at all. I feel I have amplified the value of the radio. I was so new to the regular MZ 24 that I see learning the Pro will be easy without any habits in place. I look forward to the new features especially auto trim.

mz-24 Firmware Upgrade to mz-24 PRO review
Hello all, As first I would like add my review about GraupnerUAS team: is real nice team and service! They answered for all my questions, did it fast and clear. A couple words about upgrade to PRO: for me it's the good chance have all features of PRO in your MZ-24. A lot good features like auto-trim, logical switches etc etc (more in documentation for sure :) ). Also they shipped face plates for me , like was promised. PS the wish from the customer: will be great also buy red panel like on PRO ;)

MZ-24 Upgrade to Pro software
At last, an upgrade to what I required for flying gliders. Voice announcements for each flight phase done simply, renaming the Q-link nomenclature to Flight Phases (which had stood Graupner in good stead for more than 20 years), and less confusion setting up trim for each phase. Thanks for listening. The upgrade was painless, apart from the looong wait. To be able to upgrade over the web meant this customer with a potentially long (and wet) walk (or expensive and uncertain postal process) to the nearest service centre could get satisfaction. Certainly worth doing.

Feature Improvements
The added features of this upgrade make the radio so much more versatile and have improved the capabilities of the programming. I now have audio information during my flight letting me know just what I want to know at the precise time I need that information. Way to go Graupner!

Senior Model Builder and Pilot
I feel the update is an awesome one, however the way it is presented is very confusing! It appears that you should purchase this and it will be sent to you, which is not the case! After three tries, where I had to purchase it, each time, before I could continue, I found out that all I had to do was to 'Watch' the four part video. Some sort of clarification needs to be put in place by Graupner to eliminate this confusion. One thing would be to remove the 'Put in Cart' button. Otherwise I am appreciative that Graupner have offered this upgrade to an already terrific radio.

Mz24 Pro software
In Germany we have to ship our Mz24 to the Service to get Pro Update, so I choosed Graupner USA to do the update myself. Everything is fine, no complications. The Pro Software is really worth to do this update

The software upgrade went very smoothly with the help of the tutorial videos provided by graupner. The new features and enhancements are great value for existing MZ 24 users and essentially gives you the top of the line radio for the cost of the upgrade. Graupners service and R&D continue to put them right at the top of the industry. I couldnt be happier.

Scale RC Sailplane Pilot
I just followed the helpful video posted with the upgrade and did not encounter any major problems. All my sailplanes appeared and worked afterward without a problem. Every anti-virus that I tried on my computer did not let me run the upgrade file on my desktop. After I disabled the anti-virus everything worked like the video showed. It took a little experimenting to get the voice working on my tow release switch. Maybe a short video would have helped. Now my sailplane tow pilot can hear "Tow Released" without me saying a word.

O MELHOR RADIO 12CH DO MERCADO !!!
Fiz a atualização passo a passo e estou muito feliz com o meu MZ-24 atualizado para PRO O porcesso tem alguns cuidados a ser tomado: durante o processo de atualização ate a versão 1.052 não se pode tocar na tela do radio ou acionar qualquer chave do radio Isso faz com que o processo seja cancelado 2) Na fase final de atualização para uma versão PRO em 2.021 é fundamental que voce utilizar uma conexão de internet por cabo, isso é importante para uma gualidade de wifi não para boa o processo também é cancelado Em fim, digo que um graupner veio com um produto para revolucionar o mercado e vai crescer muito em meu pais brasil Sou um entusiasta da marca. Montei recentemente um modelo extra 35% escala eletrico e estou usando 2 rx GR-12L .............. PERFEITO !!! O sistema é preciso e com um bind solido e seguro Novamente OBRIGADO GRAUPNER !!! Estou aguardando o novo rádio MZ-32 !!! Muitos pilotos de jets no brasil estão esperando um gruapner com 14 a 16ch !!! I did the step by step upgrade and I am very happy with my updated MZ-24 for PRO The process has some care to be taken: during the upgrade process until version 1.052 you can not touch the radio screen or press any key on the radio This causes the process to be canceled 2) In the final stage of upgrading to a PRO version in 2.021 it is crucial that you use a cable internet connection, this is important for a wifi quality not to good the process is also canceled Finally, I say that a graupner came with a product to revolutionize the market and will grow a lot in my country Brazil I am a brand enthusiast. I recently mounted an extra 35% electric scale model and I'm using 2 rx GR-12L .............. PERFECT !!! The system is accurate and with a solid and secure bind Again THANK YOU GRAUPNER !!! I'm waiting for the new MZ-32 radio !!! Many jet pilots in Brazil are expecting a 14-16ch gruapner !!!
