    • This document is a full workshop manual (at over 80 pages) for the Futaba 9Z series of transmitters (9ZAP or 9ZHP, WC1 and WC2), which are also known as the "Futaba 1024Z" and have the official Futaba designation "T9Z". However, many of the procedures in it are the same as you would use for servicing virtually any type of Futaba transmitter - the details may differ, but the approach is pretty standard. This manual goes way beyond just accessing the Futaba service menu; it gives a 'How To' for for pretty much every repair, calibration, service or upgrade that you'd ever need to carry out; including: finding the User Password, changing Stick and Version Mode, replacing the Back-up battery and much, much more.
    • Download the Futaba 9ZAP WC2 - Service, Repair and Upgrade Manual  @ www.jamesandtracy.co.ukThe procedures in this manual have come from my own disassembly and reassembly of my Futaba 9ZAP WC2 and in many cases have been fully tested by me. The manual makes servicing your 9Z simple and anyone with a small amount of modelling knowledge should be able to carry out pretty much every repair and upgrade process described. There are a few processes that will require specialist kit (e.g. a multimeter) but these are clearly marked in the text. In all cases, please read the disclaimer at the start of the manual - this is an unofficial manual and has been put together through experience, it is not an official Futaba service manual and so you should not assume that the procedures in it are the 'correct' or 'authorised' way of doing things.
