04/14/2014 Meet Josh Brannon
Not everyone starts off in the RC World. Josh Brannon did not. Josh was exposed to aviation during his time in the Marine Corps. With working with Helicopters and Tilt-Rotors as a mechanic, supervisor, Quality Assurance, and a maintenance controller, for ten years, his passion for the hobby grew. In 2012 Josh started RC Flight with a Raptor 30 Nitro Helicopter. Soon after he ventured into electric powered Helis and has not looked back. Flying is not all Josh enjoys. " I enjoy flying my models, but I enjoy building and working on them just as much", he states. Being in the full scale helicopter industry for nearly 18 years, Josh enjoys bringing his expertise into his love of the RC hobby.
You can find Brannon flying at E-Week, Frosty Dog Fun-Fly, IRCHA, Joe Nall, and Heli Extravaganza. We look forward to seeing you on the field. Welcome to Jeti USA!
04/14/2014 Meet Jeff "Moose" Maruschek
Growing up around airplanes, both full scale and models, Jeff "aka Moose" has always had that inkling inside that would eventually lead him to pick up a model of his own. “I was infused with airplanes from my grandfather, who not only built his own full scale planes, but continued into his later years building rubber band powered stick and tissue models. These were the toys I looked forward to when visiting Grandma and Grandpa. As an adult, I picked up an RC airplane and never looked back." States Jeff.
Jeff has been flying RC aircraft for the past 6 years. Recently being named to Team 3D Hobby Shop, and now joining us on Team Jeti USA, Jeff is looking forward to attending his many regular events with his aerobatic planes, warbirds, wings, jets, and of course his Jeti DS-14. He is always helpful, always laughing, and always looking to learn more. We look forward to seeing you at the shows and flying alongside you!
You can catch Moose at these upcoming 2014 events:

02/05/2014 Meet “Oat”
Husakul Suvunnapaph, better known as "Oat" to hobby enthusiasts, needs no introduction. His work with Insane Canopy is only one of Oats great talents. Starting in the realm of fixed wing aircraft, oat began flying. His first airplane was a Hobby Shack Trainer 40. After three years of advancing in the fixed wing world, Oat had an itch for something new. After being introduced to Helicopters there was no going back for Oat, he found his love. Getting started on a 50 size Nitro Heli fifteen years ago, Oat now flys Kasama Helicopters. "I dropped all my other hobbies including nitro on road 1/8 RC cars, fixed wing, and go karts so I can fly helis most of the weekend," Says Oat. When he is not flying, he is busy with Insane Canopy, a company that specializes in customized canopy designs. Thanks for going our team Oat! Can’t wait to see you on the field.

01/24/2014 Meet David Soufer
It all began in 1991 for our new Team Jeti USA pilot David Soufer. He was hooked. Although familiar with many airplanes, David’s fleet consists of mostly BVM jets. Currently David owns a BVM F100 F, BVM F4, BVM Ultra Bandit, BVM Bandit MKII, BVM Bobcat, and BVM eBandit (14S), however since 1996, when he started flying exclusively jets, he has had a BVM Maverick , Hot-Spot, Blade, Skymaster F18, Rafael B01, Seven Bandits (Composite and Super) and a BVM F100 D. Alongside his many airplanes, he has had a chance to tinker with many radios.
“The radios I have used in the past have been JR10X, JR12X, Spektrum 18X, the 18XQQ and the best of them all is my beloved Jeti DS-16-Carbon.”
“I try to fly twice a week or as time allows” States David, so look for him on the field! Welcome to Jeti USA!
01/23/2014 Welcome to Team Jeti USA!
01/23/2014 Meet Jim McEwen
With about 30 years of both flying and building RC Planes, Jim McEwen has seen a lot. Since the early 90’s Jim has been immersed in the world of ducted fans and turbine propulsion systems. Come the late 90’s Jim made the move from Canada to the beautiful sunshine state. Once in Florida, he joined the RCACF field in Orlando where he enjoyed the Florida jet scene for a few years. After that, he continued on to Phoenix, Arizona where is has become involved with scale jet competition. He has held several positions as part of the organizing staff at the Jet World Masters in Dayton in 2011, then as crew/spotter at Top Gun ’13 and the Jet World Masters in Switzerland, and now as a competitor.
Jim’s fleet of scale aircraft includes several Gripens, a Rafale, a Mirage F-1, and a Tunnan which he is currently building for the Jet World Masters 2015 in Germany.
“I am an aerospace engineer and have historically focused on the engineering and systems that go into R/C planes. I was greatly impressed with the Jeti system (particularly the redundancy, telemetry, and warnings) and have been enjoying helping to introduce the system to the west coast and providing support to Jeti users” Says Jim.
You can find him attending most west coast jet events such as Desert Jet Storm, Tucson Jet Rally, Monster Invitational Jet Jam, Arizona Jet Rally, and the Best in the West Jet Rally. Welcome to the team Jim!
01/18/2014 Meet Ashleigh Heath
Ashleigh Heath, our newest Team Jeti USA member is not your average 14 year old. Just a freshman in high school, Ashleigh has already been flying for three years. At the age of 11 she received a Hobby Zone Super Cub LP and taught herself to fly. In the next few months, Ashleigh became the proud owner of a four channel fixed wing aircraft and she was hooked. Up until summer of 2012 small foamies had been her bird of choice. Joe Nall Week quickly changed everything.
“I flew my first gas giant scale plane at Joe Nall Week, a 3D Hobby Shop 104” Slick. I now have a few 3DHobbyShop 30cc airframes, 3DHS 87" and 103" Extras, and various smaller balsa planes and foamies. I enjoy this hobby very much and I’m going to stick with it for a long time.” Ashleigh states. Welcome to the team!

01/15/2014 Joe Smith’s Portable Charging Station with Jeti Wireless Telemetry!!!
Telemetry technology has allowed the Radio Control industry to come a long way, and Jeti's Telemetry System is no exception! The Jeti Telemetry System of transceivers and sensors allows you to monitor multiple parameters occurring in your aircraft in real-time, but why limit the telemetry to aircraft only?
Impressed at the fast setup of a friends system, Joe Smith, a Jeti USA Team Pilot, was in search of the perfect charging setup. As Joe set out to build his own charging case, he was determined to solve the problems that have plagued RC enthusiasts for quite some time. When charging batteries, several issues can arise, no matter what setup you use. These problems can be as simple as a bad connector or as complex as a corrupt circuit on your charging board. If, or shall I say when (since these problems will occur at least once in a hobbyist's lifetime), a problem occurs the result can be troublesome. You can end up with batteries that do not have a complete charge, are over charged, or have cells that are extremely unbalanced. In extreme cases, your battery pack could overheat and ignite. In the past, the only solution was to monitor the entire charging process. Obliviously this is not an easy task as batteries can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours to charge.
After switching to the Jeti DS-16 Radio, Joe had become quite familiar with telemetry technology and its uses, which led him to the question "If I could monitor and setup alarms for the temperature, voltage, current, and mAh usage of everything in my airplane while it was in the air, then why couldn’t I do this with a charging case?"
The answer was that he could. We know that through the use of a MUI sensor we can now monitor voltage, current, and mAh usage between each charger and power supply, the voltage of each battery, the current going to each battery, and the mAh that have been put into each battery. Jeti's MULi 6S sensor allows us to see the voltage of each cell in each battery pack, and the MT125 sensor shows us the internal temperature of each charger as well as the temperature of each 12V power supply. Now that we know what we can see, the question remains how do we see it. For that, there are a few options. Of course you can view all this telemetry information directly on to your Jeti DS or DC transmitter, but that may not be most practical solution. Jeti's Profi Box is a device, about the size of an Apple iPhone 5, that with the use of a Jeti receiver can receive telemetry data. This allows the ability to monitor your charging batteries, with the convince of mobility. Using the JetiBox programming feature in the Profi Box, you can program audible alarms for each parameter you are monitoring.
Therefore, if a problem should arise, you will know instantly. The advent of modern telemetry systems have not only given great insights about our aircraft during flight, but have simplified the processes that were once troublesome. With the line of Jeti Products, these systems are easily available, and as we are learning, the possibilities are endless.

But don’t just take it from us, here’s what you’ve told us!
“(I) just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how thrilled I am with my new Jeti DS-16 and accessories. Coming from Futaba, it was hard to put down a brand that I had been with for 30 years flying helicopters, large gas warbirds, and jets. (I) decided to take the plunge and I am very glad I did.
Also am impressed with the quality of the Jeti polo shirts I got. Seems that no matter what club I go to (and I belong to 3 in my area) people are fascinated by Jeti. Heck, I am even thrilled to show off what my new equipment can do!! Think I even talked a club member in Napa CA into getting a DS-16 today. OK, the quality and functionality of the Jeti had a lot to do with it.

11/15/2013 Congratulations Donald Corum!!!
We here at Esprit Model and Jeti USA love it when we hear positive stories from our customers. Donald writes;
“Good Day Gentleman,
My name is Donald Corum and I have recently switched over to the Jeti DS-16 Radio System. I wanted to personally thank you for such a superb and well thought out system. As a competitor in the unlimited scale racing association, aka the USRA, your radio system contributed greatly to my success. I won the unlimited class (the highest class in our organization) on 10/27/2013. In this class our aircraft reach speeds in excess of 240mph. I won the final, gold trophy race with an average on-course speed of 234mph. This was accomplished in direct competition against many notable, sponsored pilots including:
Peter Goldsmith, Andrew Taylor (Team Horizon)
Kyle Dahl (Team JR)
David Smith (Team Futaba and Current Record Holder)
I believe this is the first win in a major US competition. If so, congratulations to Jeti!!!!! And thank all of you for designing and manufacturing such a great product.
Thank you Donald and congratulations on your win. We are glad to hear you enjoy your Jeti Radio System and hope you continue to progress in your competitions.
