Default transfering models from 14sg to 16iz?

I have a Futaba 14sg and I am going to get the 16iz. Can I take my SD card from the 14sg and will it transfer the16iz and will it transfer the models to the new 16iz?

The 16IZ can directly convert 14SG models. However, you cannot take a 16IZ model back to the 14SG.

See page 226 of the manual

I got my new Futaba 16iz three days ago and I have been trying to transfer my models from the 14sg to the 16iz.
I updated my Futaba 14sg to the 9.0 firmware with sound firmware. Put back in my standard 32gb sd card and copied the models to it. Went to put it in the new 16iz and it does not fit. Because it takes Micro SD card. So I got a Lexar series E microSDHC UHS-I 32gb Micro SD card put it in the 14gs transmitter and it won't read the micro sd card. Took it out retry old it transmitter reads it ok. So I went out purchase another Lexor High performance 633X 32gb micro SDHC UHS-1 Blue series card and the 14sg still does not read it. It show no card in transmitter.
Do you have any suggestions?

Sometimes micro SD cards inn an adaptor do not get recognized. In this case I suggest copying the model files from the 14SG SD card into your computer and them copying them onto the mIcro SD card for the 16IZ.

I finally got a micro SD card to work. It's brand name SanDisk Ultra microSDHC UHS-I card with adapter! 16GB Speed up to 80MB/s..... Don't get the 100 speed it does not work. On the back of the card it says it is for Fire Tablets and Fire TV.
I hope this helps other people.
The transfer was so easy after having right card .
Editing the models and the menus are so easy to use. I like this transmitter. Futaba did a great job on it!

yep, super high speed cards don't play nice. Glad you got it worked out.
