Help!
Futaba 12FG

Got my hand on a 12FG

Looked through the instruction, and could not find any info on that little slider switch next to the SD card slot. Probably has something to do with the SD card?

There is no mention of software update in the 12FG manual!

May be it is time to call on Futaba.

If you register your new Transmitter with Futaba.. you will be invited to join the Futaba Flyers Club..
This provides you access to Futaba's Forum for the 12Z and 14MZ Owners which inturn provides you access to all upgrade software..

There are also instructions on how to utilize the SD Card and switches to perform the upgrades..

I sent a message to support@futaba-rc.com (got it from Futaba website), and it bounced ! The message is return via Mailer-Daemon@hob-gw-01.hobbico.net

I have a 12z. That switch is the program update switch for the transmitters software.It is not used for model file or model programs just for updates to the TX.First your insert your cf card then you flip that switch, then you turn on the tx power and it updates.ALways insert and remove the cf card with the power off, wether your adding model files or updating the TX software.In my manual that info is on the very last page, almost like it was missed and added as an after thought.
