As all of the forums have posted, the 14MZ will be 2048 PCM. This is double the resolution of the 9Z radio (1024). Futaba is the first to provide a 2048 PCM system - no one else in the industry has it. This is the 3rd generation in PCM Technology from Futaba.
Not only has the resolution doubled from the 9Z - the frame rate is now 40% faster. The 14MZ speed is 17.6 milliseconds, compared the 9Z speed of 28.5 milliseconds.
How will all of this benefit you? The combination of 2048 PCM and the frame rate speed produces "Real Time Response," the closest you'll be able to come to real-time flying. No radio except the 14MZ will give you the unprecedented precision of "Real Time Response."

The 14MZ will have dual internal processors! One uses the Windows CE operating system and functions as the brain for the 14MZs operating, communications, and programming functions. The other is a Custom Futaba Processor that will manage all of its flying functions.
Why is Futaba using two processors? To ensure that neither the Windows CE operating system nor the Custom Futaba Processor will bog down. This improves the efficiency of the flying functions as well as the operating, communications, and programming functions.
