Mode 2 to Mode 1 conversion


I am a new MZ-24 owner.

My thanks Matt at OH for his guidance and further notes on the procedure to convert the transmitter from Mode 2 to Mode 1 operation.

For those who may be interested, the MZ-24 transmitter can be 'Mode' converted without removing and transferring the coil spring (!). No need to open it up and unplug looms, perform 'micro-surgery' using tweezers to transplant the gimbal spring, extract and replace itty bitty screws, etc. Brilliant.

Changing the electronic setting to any Mode you like is also a snap. Too easy.

I now have the throttle on the right with drag and ratchet 'custom set' by me to just how I like it. Twisting a screw in the battery compartment disables 'elevator' spring centreing and reversing the action on the other screw enables it on the 'new' elevator side. You adjust the spring tension by turning a cam screw in the battery compartment, accessible with the battery lid off. Convenient. Again, no need to open the shell to do it, unlike every other transmitter I have owned.

The rubber grip also comes away from the back of the case with gentle lifting, so you can access and adjust the stick drag / ratchet cam screws hidden under the grip on the chosen side for the throttle stick. Start by lifting the grip rubber on the corner near the slider lever and take your time. When you are done, the grip hold-down studs pop back in the case without a drama. A little finger pressure and you would never know it has been lifted. Quality moulding means the parts match closely for a smooth, ripple-free join line.

**

My work station won't accept the driver for the firmware 14 upgrade . No issue, I'll just try to load it on my home laptop.

**

A cautionary note for owners of the MZ-24 who like to fiddle ... err ... explore / change settings, just to see what will happen.

DO NOT change the Tx battery spec from LiPo to NiHi with the set powered. I did . Now the delightful lady inside won't stop telling me my Tranny battery is low. No getting out of the warning screen either. I am going to have to power up with a 4.8 volt NiHi pack patched in (using a 6" extension lead) to shut her up; and then switch the battery setting back to LiPo.

With the speaker on '5' her voice is plenty loud enough .

I have a question about Trim assignments. In the Trim Step menu there is T1-4 which is self explanitory. Then there is the ability to assign DT1 and 2 to a particular channel. Is there a way to assign the the different rotary knobs, side sliders or DV on the MZ-24 as trims on the other 6 channels?

No that is not possible. You can assign these controls only as a channel of your choice.

Would be a nice option to have though.

Its confusing that all these controls positions are viewable through the Trim Step/View menu. If you can see them there you would think you could use them as trim controls.

I am programming a full house sailplane. I could set them to a channel of my choice to "trim" the surface but I don't have enough mixes in some flight modes.

And could we stop it from beeping every key press?

I mean, telemetry voice is so low with volume at 1, and when it's at 5, the beep is freaking loud.

Noted.

If you like you can mail me your model file and I can have a look at it.

So you want to be able to disable the beeping unrelated to the volume setting of the telemetry voice volume?

Yes sir, with the option to turn off the beep separately from the master volume would make this radio perfect for me.

I am quite satisfied that I replaced my hitec aurora 9 with graupner.

The ability of turning off the beep was what I miss about my hitec.

Please make me forget my hitec

Hi,

I own now a MZ-12, after an old MC-19 + 2.4GHZ module. Happy with it, but is it any chance to see the german handbook translated to english soon ?

I speak about a english version of the great 208 pages handbook, full of great informations and exemples about how to program the radio and use HOTT system.

I got the german one with my radio:


but even if I speak german a little bit, many subtilities are beyond my sentences understanding.
I really hope THIS handbook will be translated in english and french (as were all the MX line ones).

Thanks anyway

We are in the process of translating and reviewing some of our manuals to other languages. We will notify our forum users when they will become available.

Meanwhile if you have any questions please feel free to ask and we will help you out.

Hello,

I wanted to upgrade my MZ-12 to the last firmware 1.051, as I already did for a MX-12 V2. So I used USB adapter 7168.6 + cable 7168.S, connected to upper raw back of the TX, but it doesn't work.

I user grStudio 3.7 and the same adapter-cable combination works flawlessly with receivers and modules.

In the SZ-12 manual it is said to use cable 6466.S. No way to use 7168.S instead ?
