The Futaba 18MZ – When only the best will do.

Jan 12, 2012 1 Comment by

I have seen some magazine ads for the new Futaba 18MZ, but here is a link to a video that describes it even better.

There are certainly no shortages of radios on the market, but there is only one radio of this caliber. When I look at the 18MZ – I mean at the video of the radio since I have never seen one in person – it reminds me that there are Porsche’s and Ferrari’s out there that people really do purchase. What we all really need to drive is a 5-year-old Ford station wagon, but who drives one of those? So, if you drive something better, we’re not talking need – we’re talking want. All of us try to have some of the finer things in life – and this is definitely one of them.

 

I have had a lot of radios over the years in this hobby, but if you’re looking for one you can grow old with – and only the best will do – I would think this is the one to consider.
