When turning on the 14MZ, you must let the system cycle through before turning off. There is a sequence that should be followed to get you started. R5014DPS Receiver Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch Ch H-4 Swash Throttle Rudder Aileron (Left/Right Cyclic) Elevator 1 (Fore/Aft Cyclic) Pitch Elevator 2 Gyro Governor 1 Governor 2 Needle Auxiliary 2 Auxiliary 1 All Others Throttle Rudder Gyro Aileron (Left/Right Cyclic) Elevator (Fore/Aft Cyclic) Pitch Governor 1 Governor 2 Needle Auxiliary 3 Auxiliary 2 Auxiliary 1
First you should know the 14MZ receiver (R5014DPS) has a different layout than the standard layout Futaba has used in the past. After you have all your servos installed in your helicopter, youll want to use one of these charts to plug the proper servos into the R5014DPS receiver.

Direct Keys

After turning on the power switch and pressing No for transmit. This will take you to the Home Page. Press Linkage Menu then Model Select then press New, and then press Yes. Press on Swash Type and choose from one of the 7 different Swash Types in the diagram that corresponds with the type of control system on your helicopter. Youll be asked Check Change, if correct, press Yes. After selecting the swash type you will come to the Frequency page. Select the frequency by pressing the Pink Box and then select the frequency or channel you would like to be on for this particular model. After selecting the frequency, press Enter at the top right hand corner of the screen. Youll be asked to Check the change. If Yes, youll need to make sure you have your battery plugged into the receiver but no power to the receiver. Once you press Yes, then turn on the power to the receiver to program the receiver to the frequency you just selected. You must have the transmitter antenna very close to the receiver antenna when doing this. Please follow the steps in the manual on page (26) How to change the Frequency. Then youll need to turn off the power to cycle through for the frequency to take affect. Turn the system back on. Press Yes for Transmit. This will take you to the Home Page to start setting everything up.
SETTING SWASH MIXING At this time you should install and set up your servos as per the helicopter manufactures instructions. While at the Home Page, youll notice on the left side of the screen THR Stick Pos. and Pitch just under the Timer. As you move the stick up and down, youll see the numbers change. Use the Pitch numbers to center your collective pitch servo as these numbers read out stick position in tenths of a percent which is more accurate than the THR Stick Pos.
Press the Linkage Menu and press Swash. In the Swash AFR section to the right side of the screen, youll notice that all the values are set to +50% for Aileron, Elevator and Pitch. These are standard values and will apply to most helicopters. If your collective is moving backwards, change Swash AFR +50% to -50%, to do this press the box for Aileron, Elevator or Pitch and youll have two arrow and single arrows for up and down and a reset to the right of the Swash AFR settings. The single Arrows move the settings in increments of one percent. The two arrows move the increments in ten percent. Reset will reset the settings to +50%. Check the left/right, fore/aft cyclics and adjust these values if needed through the Swash AFR from +50% to -50%. To get back to the Home Page press Swash button in the top left corner of the screen and then press Linkage Menu in the top left corner of the screen.
If while moving the collective stick up/down one or more of the servo is moving against the others, youll need to go into the Servo Reverse menu. To do this from the home page press on Linkage Menu and press Servo Reverse. This screen will tell you what each channel slot is on the receiver. Select the servos that need to be reversed by pressing on NORM. You will be asked Sure?, press yes, if not no. When finished youll need to go back into your Swash, Swash AFR and repeat the check. Be careful moving the sticks to the extremes as you could bind up any of the servos. If the swashplate (pitch) is traveling too far or binding, go to the Linkage Menu and then Swash. Under Swash AFR reduce the Pitch percentages to stop the binding or over throw of the swashplate (pitch) to give you the pitch range you need.
CHANGING MODEL NAME Press Linkage Menu, Model Select. At the bottom right side of the screen press Rename. This will bring up a key board to use in naming your model. You may want to use the Stylus for pressing the small letters. You can enter up to 32 Characters. At the bottom of the page youll notice a box with a flashing cursor. To erase New Model-1 just press del. Use the keyboard to input the desired name of the model and press Return to save the name. When finished, press ESC at the top left corner of the keyboard.

ACTIVATING CONDITIONS From the Home Page press Model Menu, select Condition Select. In the red box youll see the word Normal. This is your normal hovering condition. Press Add at the bottom of the page. Now press Idle Up-1, press Null on the right side of Idle-Up 1. Now you will select which switch you want to activate Idle Up 1. Press the desired switch to activate Idle Up-1, usually Switch E (SW-E) then press the On Posi for on position. If using Switch E for Idle Up-1 the drawing on the screen will show the 3-position switch and the current position of the switch. The middle position of the switch is automatically in the off position. Press the OFF button to turn this position on. Make sure the other positions are in the Off position. Press Close. Press Idle Up-1 to highlight (red), and then press Add again. Using the same process, add as many Idle Ups as you desire or need. You must add Throttle Hold at the end. If you are using two Idle Ups and a Throttle Hold, you need to have them listed in the correct order. Example: 1) Normal 2) Idle Up-1 3) Idle Up-2 4) Throttle Hold They can not be listed in any other order or they will not function properly. Now go back to the Home Page. Make sure that all of your switches are in the off position. Under the picture of the helicopter, youll see the word Normal. Pull your Idle Up-1 switch (SE) and the word Normal should change to Idle Up-1. Do the same for the other conditions youve just set. SEPARATING PITCH AND THROTTLE CURVES, AFRS, EXPOS AND DUAL RATES Press Model Menu, Pit Curve. Just to the left side, about center of the graph you will see a red box with files Gr. In a small blue section. Press this box to change to single and press yes. This will allow you to program your different pitch curves. Do this for Normal, each Idle Up and Throttle Hold by flipping the corresponding switches. Press out of PIT Curve, press THR Curve and do the same for all conditions. Press THR Curve to exit and then press AFR (D/R). Youll see Aileron next to the file cabinet. First change the file cabinet Gr. to single and press yes. Then press Aileron and press Elevator and do the same process. Press Elevator and press Rudder and do the same process. You are preparing these flight condition parameters for later adjustments. This will allow you to make changes to Pitch, Throttle, AFRs, Dual Rates and Expos in one condition without affecting other conditions. Turn off the transmitter to allow saving of the settings. ATV'S From the Home Page press Linkage Menu and press End Point (ATV). Typically any adjustments made in ATV will affect all conditions. Many pilots will prefer to use the AFRs settings to adjust endpoints.

CHOOSING A PITCH AND THROTTLE CURVES You have many types of curves to choose from for both Throttle and Pitch. From the Home Page, press Model Menu and then press PIT Curve for your Pitch Curves or THR Curve for your Throttle curves. Youll have a word Linear on the right side of the graph. Press Linear and youll get six different types of curves to choose from. Spline is the curve that is most adjustable. It will give you 9 points that can be adjusted. Any of these 9 points can be removed or you can create your curve settings. Press on Rate, use the Double arrowed (up or down) box on the right side of the screen to move any selected point. The double arrowed (up/down) will move in increments of 5%, the single arrows (up/down) will move the points in increments of.5%. To highlight a point in the graph you use the >, < or >>, << to move up or down the line to select the point you wish to manipulate. If you wish to remove a point, highlight the point and press Delete. The Offset will move the curve up or down as you prefer. THROTTLE HOLD In Model Menu press Throttle Hold. Throttle Hold is on the right side of the screen. When you pull the Throttle Hold Switch (SG), youll notice the word Normal at the top of the page changes to Hold. But we need to activate Throttle Hold for it to operate properly. Youll see ACT/INH with a box to the right that has INH and a box with files (Gr.). Press the Gr. To turn it to Single. Select Yes. Next press INH and it will turn to ON. At the bottom of the box there is Switch, NULL. Press NULL, chose the same switch that you chose for throttle hold in the condition menu, this should be SG. Press SG and ON Posi. To make sure that the switch is operating in the correct direction. Press Close and it will take you back to the Throttle Hold page. In this box youll see Mode. Make sure that his is reading Manual. GYRO From the Home Page press Model Menu, press Gyro. Here you will see three rates that can be selected and activated by any switch. The Gyro gains can be set to automatically change when switching from condition to condition. Look at Rate 1 (top Row), on the far right side of the page, youll see a column called Group under the Group column is a GR. Folder. Press on the GR. Folder to change to SNGLE then press Yes. Do this for every condition to allow different gyro settings for each condition. Column with ACT (Left side of the screen), you should see On in a green box, if not press INH to change to ON. This will activate the settings you just programmed. In the next column youll see Type, it should say GY if you are using a Futaba GY series of Gyros, if not press for NORM. Next column Rate should read AVCS if you prefer the gyro to operate in heading hold mode, if not press the AVCS and NOR will display for normal mode. Also under the Rate column, this is where you will make the changes to the gyro gain. This number will need to be set for each condition. When you press the percentage box, youll get the double and single arrows pop up on the right side of the screen. Use these to set the percentages required. (Double arrows in 10% increments and single arrows in 1% increments) Next column is for Switch selection. You should have NULL in the box. Press NULL and it will take you to the switch selection menu. Program to what switch you would like for this function to operate. FUTZ8652 for FUTJ9405, FUTJ9408, FUTJ9411

This is the helicopter version which will default to helicopter settings when powered up and does not have a ratcheted throttle stick. If your transmitter's region code is something other than the United States,the TM-14 Module sold in the United States is not compatible with this transmitter. As such, it is necessary to purchase the TM-14 module which matches the region code of the transmitter. For the latest information about the 14MZ visit the manufacturer web page at or FASST FEATURES: Futaba's FASST (Futaba Advanced Spread Spectrum Technology) shifts very quickly virtually eliminating signal conficts and interruptions unlike other 2.4GHz systems that only stay on one or two frequencies Dual antenna diversity enables FASST system to automatically and seamlessly select the best reception between the two antennas built into the receiver ensuring that the aircraft stays under constant control of transmitter regardless of altitude Pre-Vision Packet Screening technology scans incoming data for potential problems and applies sophisticated error correction techniques for solid impenetrable link with model Easy Link system features a unique ID code in the transmitter that links to the receiver insuring that receiver only follows commands from this transmitter-with over 134 million possible codes there is no chance for a conflict When performing a ground check, the Power Down function allows modeler to reduce power from up to 50+ paces away-like retracting the antenna on a conventional transmitter No hassle Fail Safe programmed through transmitter-no complicated set-up steps or binding plugs Purpose built custom IC chips for key functions; no off-the-shelf IC chips GENERAL FEATURES: Real-Time Response Double the resolution of PCM1024, the 14MZ's breakthrough PCM G3 2048 enables servos to pick up even the slightest stick movements. It's the closest to actual real-time response possible, for unprecedented speed and precision. The 14MZ is also backwards- compatible, so pilots can still use 1024PCM and PPM receivers Large Color Touch Screen Only one company in the world could make the 14MZ's an engineering triumph in itself. The HGVA screen features crystal clear 640x240 pixel resolution. It uses transflective technology (layered transparent and reflective surfaces) plus adjustable backlighting and contrast for easy visibility, even in direct sunlight.
