Futaba MTC-FM Trainer Cord Round to Round Plug
Round plug style (not the 2002 square plug -- FUTM4415).
This trainer cord is designed to go between two transmitters for training student fliers how to fly R/C aircraft. The trainer cord plugs into the "teacher" transmitter first and then into a trainer compatible "student" transmitter. The trainer switch on the teacher transmitter is used to disable or activate the student radio.
Includes: One Black 10ft FM Trainer Cord
Comments: Only SOME Futaba radios are trainer compatible. Use the 1994-1995 Futaba catalog (Page 4) compatibility chart for most radios.
Radios that use the Round Port: 4NBF/P, 4VF, 5UAP, 6DA, 6NF/PK, 6VA, 6X(S), 7UF/P(S), 8UF/P(S)
Radios that use the Micro (square) Port: Tower 4-TH, 6EXA, 4YF, 9C
This trainer cord will work with any ROUND TRAINER JACK radio (7U,8U,4V.) that is FM or PCM (switched to FM/PPM)
Note: For all radios except the 6X and 7U family radios (1), the master radio is always in the same modulation as the receiver, and the student radio is ALWAYS in FM/PPM mode.
Example: Rx is R148DP. Master is set to PCM, student is set to PPM.
** If using the 6X and 7U: If the Receiver used is PCM, you CANNOT use this trainer box. **
This is compatible with most FM-trainer compatible radios from 1984-2002.
As of 2002, the new trainer cord style is a flat square plug. See FUTM4415/20. New radio models after the 9C will all use the square (Mirco) plug. To use a round-plug style (this cord) with a square-plug style (9C style), use FUTM4420).
Radios using this cord CANNOT be buddy boxed with Futaba AM radios.
This trainer cord can be used with Hitec radios as "students". If using Hitec radios as a "teacher" radio, use HRCM8310 cord. It is recommended that the "student" radios should be shut OFF.
