I think this is going to save many lives out there since there is very little support for newbies like me in this specific matter.

Setting up a SUM signal with a GR-24L Rx and a Graupner mz-18/24 Tx requires you to connect a 3 pin cable (yes just one 3-pin cable) from your FC's (I am using Naze32) Channel 1 (white cable: signal, red cable: + current, and black cable: - or ground) to the channel 8 which is the designated channel for setting up the SUM signal.

After those connections are done properly and safely you want to get in the FC's UI which in this case I used cleanflight and you want to go to the "Configuration" tab then make sure you have the "Receiver Mode" checked into RX_PPM. Then move onto the "Receiver Tab" and make sure your channel map is setup to "JR / Spektrum / Graupner"

After that, assuming your Tx and Rx are bond, follow the following instructions to activate SUM in your Tx:

Changing the GR-24L to SUMO (single output PPM data stream)

On the MZ-18/24 select Function Menu > Telemetry > Setting and Data View, to go into the receiver settings.
When the RX Data View Screen comes up press 'ENT' 5 times till you get to the RX Servo Test Menu
Press 'INC' 6 times to scroll down to the 'CH OUT TYPE' line.
Press 'SET' to highlight the channel out type.
Press 'INC' to change the value to 'SUMO' (sum signal out/PPM out)
Press the 'SET' button again to select the number of channels to be output. (I chose 12 channels)
Press 'INC' or 'DEC' to select how many channels to output in the PPM stream.
Press 'SET' to exit and save the value.
Press 'BACK' 3 times to exit to the main screen.


After this go to cleanflight's receiver tab and all channels should be active and working.
