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.
We would like to take some time to thank our customers. This last year has brought great growth to Esprit Model/ Jeti USA and it is because of you! The enjoyment you get from your new products is what we live for; it is why we love our jobs.

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.

We would like to thank the guys at Orlando Heli Blowout. We enjoyed the demonstrations, demolitions, and delicious food. What a way to end the year! We hope to see you next year!
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 Corum”

08/22/2013 New From Jeti: Jeti High Voltage Capacitor Module AddCap
AddCAP 820 and AddCAP 1640 are add-on capacitor units designed to enhance battery power supply for drive systems using low-impedance electric motors (1-2 pole), mostly Electric Ducted Fan or Geared Inrunner motors. They should also be used when the wires from your battery to your ESC need to be lengthened more than 200mm (8"). In cases where the wires are longer, use one AddCAP 820 or AddCAP 1640 for each 200mm (8") section. Another advantage of adding an additional capacitor is to reduce possible interference which may be caused by current moving through your power wires. Recommended for use with 2.5-6 mm2 (14AWG - 10AWG) wires.
Esprit Model and Jeti USA would like to congratulate all the winners of the Les Ailerons ALES event in Quebec, Canada. We were glad to be given an opportunity to help out. A giant thanks goes to Dany Brazeau for the pictures, keep soaring!

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!

05/07/2013 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
