Futaba 14MZ spektrum module mod
Someone's probably already done this but I thought I'd share my pics anyways. I drilled a hole in the top of the module for the sma connector and used a 2dbi antenna. This makes the module more like the tm-14 fasst module. It also allows it to fit in the carrying case without modification.
I heard a rumor on another board that spektrum is working on a new module for the 14mz. I hope it is like this and with latency similar to that of a dx7.
What look like scratches on the top of the module are just some remnants of sticker glue from the "don't turn on without antenna attached" warning sticker.

Been thinking about doing this.. Thanks for the pics. I wish there was a flat spot on the top of the module rather than round. Looks like your's came out nice though.
Where did you hear about the new module? I'm completely happy with mine, but I only use it on little foamys and stuff. I use the TM-14 on everything "nice" that I own.

Someone on RunRyder posted a message saying he heard they were working on a new module. I plan to use the tm-14 for the good stuff as well. Spektrum is good for the foamies because of the good selection of small cheapish receivers.

I have recently purchased a Spektrum Module for my 14MZ limited edition with TM14 (yes, I have just switched from JR/Spektrum 2.4Ghz, so I have a quite a few receivers).
I would love to do this mod, but I cant seem to get the module to work.
I can't change the frequency to PPM, it is stuck at Fasst 2.4Ghz and gives me an error message "No module found...."
Do you reckon there is a problem with my Spektrum Module, software issues, regional problems or do I need a FM module so I can change the frequency?
My details are :
WindowsCE : 4.2
Editor : 1.3.2
Encoder : 1.41
Area : Oceania/Asia
Spektrum Module : bought new from ebay USA
Thanks for all your help.

No Module found is normal. No big deal. You need to set the transmitter to trainer student mode PPM8, then you'll be all set.
