08/07/2013 The Happy Flyer – A Love Story
One of the best parts of our work at Esprit Model/Jeti USA is hearing how happy our products have made our customers. Robert from Anaheim, California is no exception. Here is what he wrote:
“I have been flying R/C for thirty years on the ham band of 53Mhz. When I moved after retiring I joined a local r/c club. Most of the members were using the same brand radio on 2.4Ghz. I really liked the short antennas so I bought their top of the line model. That was two years ago. I have been plagued with hardware problems. There were two recalls on my radio. The last was the worst problem because a bad capacitor was causing the transmitter to send a reboot signal to the radio. This was not a brownout or blackout, it caused all control surfaces to go full throw causing the aircraft to roll over into a dive and crash. After losing $3000 in models it was time to buy a different brand radio.
I was going to buy a Futaba because of their high quality but what sold me on the Jeti Duplex DS16 was that it has two RF modules and four antennas and the receivers have built in telemetry. And the quality of the design makes it a third generation computer transmitter. I have had my DS16 for four months now with dozens of perfect flights. I was so pleased with it that I converted all 17 of my models to Jeti receivers. I love this radio. It is like having a copilot with me giving voice confirmations of what switch I threw and via telemetry what the status is of different flight conditions. I know exactly when my flight LiPo battery is at 80% and it’s time to land. I never have to take my eyes off of my model. But best of all, I never have to worry about a loss of signal again.”
Being that Robert was the only one at his club with the radio, and there were many questions to be had, he found a creative way for the radio to do all the talking. Here is a transcript of the wave file that plays whenever someone asks a question.
“Hello pilot. I am the Jeti duplex model D S 16. I am called duplex because my receivers have built in telemetry for two way data flow. For safety I have two internal transmitters each with a horizontal and vertical antenna hidden inside my display mount. My large screen can be custom arranged in small or large font to show whatever data you wish. But there is no need to look at the display because I can tell you the status of any function. I am a third generation computer transmitter where all my switches can be assigned by you for any purpose. I have toggle switches, proportional switches, logical switches, tilt switches and sequencer switches. Every time you move a switch, I can voice confirm what you just did. You never have to take your eyes off your plane. I can give you gun, missile and bomb drop sounds to make your flying more realistic. I can tell you the name of your model when you power on or change planes. I can provide all the specifications about the model and the real aircraft. With my sensors I can accurately tell you when it is time to land when your battery nears 80% use and give you a countdown time. Your aircraft will be safe with me.”
We are happy that you enjoy your Jeti system Robert! Thanks for the feedback.

07/16/2013 Back in Town
Well the boys are back. Esprit Model and Jeti USA had a wonderful time in Lebanon, Kentucky this weekend. Thank you for having us Kentucky Jets! It was a pleasure to be there. Check out our new album with tons of pictures from the Kentucky Jets Air Show on Facebook!
Esprit Model and Jeti USA are well into their voyage to the 9th annual Jets over Kentucky. Here they will enjoy several days of action packed rolling, looping, spinning, and racing. Come join us on Friday July 12th for the Parade of Lights and the hour long Fireworks Festival! Join us July 7th – July 13th in Springfield/Lebanon, Kentucky.
Check out the unboxing of the Jeti DS-16 Video from Chris Mulcahy. This is the first installment from the upcoming series where Chris will be explaining programming, telemetry, construction, and overall idea behind designing such an advance Radio Control System.
Unlike satellite receivers, Dual Path provides a true redundant RF link. Utilizing the Duplex transmitter's twin independent RF modules in Dual Path mode you bind each RF module to a separate receiver. These receivers can then be used in several ways. For example:
- Both receivers feeding a Jeti Central Box or other servo distribution systems such as the Powerbox.
- Both receivers connected to the same set of servos via Jeti EnLinks
- Using one receiver for each half of the model
Using the Duplex transmitters Device Explorer allows you to access the full range of Duplex receivers, sensors, and Mezon ESC's, all directly and wirelessly from the transmitter. No computers, no program boxes, no power resets. Simply use Device Explorer, change the setting, and fly.
Never worry about scratching your new Jeti Transmitter with this mat! Made out of a soft cloth, this mat protects your valuable possessions from the harsh dings, dents, and scratches that could occur in your work area. Although made my Jeti, the work mat serves many purposes for many applications. Take a closer look below!
05/15/2013 New Jeti Electronic Switch Dual Redundant with Magnetic Key DSM 10
The DSM 10 from Jeti is dual input redundant electronic switch designed to operate with included magnetic key. The advantage of an electronic switch is that it offers a virtual unlimited ON/OFF cycles, unlike mechanically operated switches. The redundant DSM 10 switch automatically monitors and switches between two power supplies (Rx Batteries) keeping your system operational.
05/14/2013 Shipping of Jeti DS-16 is Firing on All Cylinders!!!
We are shipping Jeti DS-16 radios as fast as we can, shipping is running full throttle. We think this should be very good flying season.
05/14/2013 A Friendly Reminder....
Don't forget that we will be raffling off a BRAND NEW DS-16 TRANSMITTER!!!!! Come visit us at Joe Nall. Raffle tickets will cost five dollars each and the drawing will be on May 17th at the Awards Ceremony. All proceeds go to the Triple Tree Aerodrome.
05/07/2013 Jeti R4L/R4i/R5L/R5i Receivers are FCC Certified
Affordable and still made with the Jeti quality you’ve come to love and respect this new receiver by Jeti offers a great way to gain basic telemetry options on a budget. With a 2 year warranty against manufacture defects, and a 50% crash replacement option, how could you go wrong?
Jeti R5 receivers were developed as classic 5-Channel receivers with additional auxiliary port to be used as add-on to R18, R14, R11, R9, R7 receivers (Plugged to the SAT Port). Sort of sat/remote/auxiliary receivers. With R5L and R5i you have two receivers in one, this is an excellent value.
The new Jeti SBEC 40 is a switching BEC with high output voltages (40A) for your high-voltage servos. This BEC will satisfy the extreme requirements of most modelers. The SBEC 40 is designed to operate with a magnetic switch (included) which offers virtually unlimited ON/OFF cycles.
After a long time of development and testing we are able to release the current version of DC-16 firmware to the public. This update fixes known issues and comes up with new features:
- Device Explorer using the very latest EX Bus protocol
- Accelerometer settings and setup for DS-16
- RC-Switch dedicated options available
- Data Analyzer for offline viewing of telemetry log files
- Advanced digital trim settings
- Switches can be used to flip pages on the main screen
- The structure of the basic menu has been modified

04/11/2013 Alarm for in Flight Turbine Shut Down!!!
If the fuel pump draws 0,8-1A at idle rpm and the alarm trigger is set to <0,5A. If the ECU shuts down the fuelpump for any reasons, you get an audio warning "Warning, Fameout!" (Custom Sound for Example). Then you will know in an instant something that you usually need a few seconds, if not more, to realize and potentially safe your very expensive model.
The amp-draw information from the MUI 30A Current/Voltage sensors can be used as a flameout warning. Always easy to hear when others are flying around you.
