VOICE, COLOR and TOUCH
Voice, color and touch is what makes the Graupner mz-18 one of the most versatile radio on the market at a price point unmatched in the industry. With its 12 channels and built-in real-time voice telemetry you will experience a new level of connection between you and your model. Usability is easy with the TFT color and touch screen. Navigating through the basic and function menus is simple with the touch of your finger, stylus or navigation keys.
The high-precision machined aluminum quad bearings gimbals are adjustable with a 4096 resolution precision for smooth and accurate flight control. High reliability is achieved by hopping over 75 2.4 GHz channels to secure the most reliable interference-free operating channel for a safe and worry-free flight.
Telemetry is integrated in all of our HoTT (Hopping Telemetry Transmission) radio systems and the mz-18 will not require any additional hardware for functions such as signal quality, temperature or receiver voltage. Like all of our HoTT receivers, the included 12ch and 6ch receivers provide telemetry functions that can be configured to notify you in case of an imminent system failure. Graupner provides a wide selection of telemetry ESCs, modules and sensors that can connect directly to your HoTT receivers for immediate operation without the need for external hub boxes or complex wiring. Our third-party partners provide additional telemetry products that will work seamlessly with your mz-18 HoTT radio.
Telemetry functions and notifications can be easily assigned to switches to provide information about battery voltage, used battery capacity, altitude, flight direction, speed and much more, increasing your situational awareness and adding extra flight safety. No more surprises from sudden depleted batteries or flying out-of-range situations! The real-time bi-directional HoTT transmission protocol will constantly monitor system health and notify you of any detected problems. Flight information can be logged on a SD memory card (not included) during flight with important data to help you later analyze your system reliability and performance.
PROGRAMMABLE VOICE ALERTS
Whether you want to hear that your landing gear is down and your flaps in landing position or even the flight mode you are in, the mz-18 allows you to configure any switch or control with a custom voice. Voices triggers can also be flight mode depended, providing you with countless options to set up voice combinations based on your flying needs and airplane conditions.
Creating your own voice files can be done easily with the free Graupner firmware update studio program.
Conditional control of your model based on switch position or controls adds a new dimension of control to the way we fly our models. For example, you can 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 combinations are only limited by your imagination.
The three channel servo sequencer allows you to set up timed events like retracting landing gears and opening/closing of gear doors all with the toggle of a switch or by setting a logical switch.
AUTO TRIM AND STEP
|Trimming your airplane, especially at its first flight, has never been easier! Just fly your airplane at level attitude and pull the freely-assignable auto trim switch and the mz-18 will automatically set the trims on your airplane.|
The mz-18 provides many options for controlling your trim settings resulting in a perfectly trimmed model.
OVER THE AIR SETUP
All HoTT products can be programmed and set up wireless directly from the mz-18 radio. No need for cables, computers or programming boxes! Need to reverse your motor direction, setup your flight controller or make receiver settings? The mz-18 radio provides easy access to all the available functions of any HoTT device directly from the radio.
SIX MODEL TYPES
The mz-18 supports model types for airplanes, sailplanes, helicopters, multirotor, boats and cars. Changing the model will change the available programming functions for each model type and with the optional free downloadable voice files you can adapt voice triggers to all your models.
Making good use of your investment in Graupner products is important to us. All of our HoTT products such as receivers, flight stabilization systems, multirotor flight controllers, flybarless controllers, ESCs and many more are all designed to be compatible with one another regardless of the HoTT radio used. This unified technology standard will ensure the same operation and user experience across all devices, increasing usability and ease-of-use when using Graupner HoTT products.
Our wide selection of HoTT flight controllers for flybarless helicopters, airplanes and multirotors will further enhance the usability of your mz-18 making it future-proof for new developments.
Interoperability is further extended with our Wireless Trainer Link where the mz-18 radio can be used with any other Graupner HoTT radio in Student Teacher Mode.
