Futaba T14 Mz Mode configuration for all 6 modes

Here a quick guide how to set up your Futaba T14
I use 2 switches
  1st switch “SE” – 2 position switch
  2nd  switch “SB” 3 position switch

Switch “SE” – Master    Switch “SB” -  Slave

How it works:

 Switch “SE”    “UP”   position   switch “SB”  select modes 1,3,5

 Switch “SE”    “Down”   position   switch “SB” select modes 2,4,6

 Step 1 .To get the right min/max PWM output we first need to set the Endpoint of channel 5, in my case name of channel 5 is “ Aux 1”

Linkage menu > EndPoint (ATV) > ch5   Aux 1  Travel value 65% and 72% as showed photo
Step 2. Model menu >Prog. Mixes > select 1st mixing
Set Master “SW-E”  and Slave Aux 1  , Value “Offset by X and Y  +25%
To get "Logic " window:
Click second "On"  ( after green "on" )
What's all, enjoy..

Thanks, Alex. I've posted that in the manual here

Notice that my T14 had some different screens then Alex's so I updated the firmware.


Here are the instructions for anyone that is hunting for them.




I found the software updates easily enough off the main http://www.futaba-rc.com but the instructions were not directly linked from the same page.


Also, after the update, the radio no longer asks to be turned on or off at power up?


I will try and program the two switches with Alex's instructions next.

i m using 18mz, i m following 14mz instruction. Unfortunately, the SE switch didnt function and SB switch work normally. Any experience on 18mz mode selection config?

at futaba 14-18 MZ owners if it does not work try to increase both rates to %25 instead of offset ! this could be solve your problem.

Thank you Tamer advise.  Would you mean Rate A & Rate B?

Comment by ESC32 on November 20, 2013 at 8:59pm

Rate A & Rate B changed to 25%, it works!

I recently update the software of my T14MZP to Editor Ver. 1.7.0 and Encoder Ver. 1.47. I think this is the last update available. After the update, I saw that, on power up, there is no options to turn off the RF output to, for example, perform a range check. Exploring this issue. I realize the following procedure to overcame this issue:

- With the transmitter off, put the throttle stick all the way up

- Turn on the transmitter

- After the screen lights up, we have a Warnig to confirm to continue

- Put the throttle stick in lower position and... that's it.

Frederico Fernandes,
