Just my 2ct.

Well really nobody had a chance to see the programming and the structure of the Jeti software. This is a fact !

I guess that there will be possibility to setup 4-servo wing without troubles, in spite that "most advantegeous tx" had troubles with such task..
e.g. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1260111
- that is not exactly the same as I imagine when "unlimited programming" is said.

I would not take Skyrocks statements so serious. He's after everything that's not A9 or Hitec. He has absolutely nothing to offer to this, and many other, discussions and should just be ignored.

The fact that he is on the ignorelist of quite some users on this forum says it all IMO.

Happy flying folks

I agree he has nothing to offer here but it's kinda fun reading some of what he says. BTW, do we know why he's so loyal to the Hitec A9? Does he work for them? Perhaps he wrote the wonderful software or implemented the touch screen that you need to "press firmly and wobble your finger about or use a stylus".

I have to ask this:

What's up with those big pizza box, tray transmitters? I know they are popular outside the USA, but why?!?!?!?

Together with a good harness (multiplex at least used to have one) they offer superior stability and frees up the hands/fingers from stabilising the transmitter (aka central neckstrap or handheld "hedgehog" style transmitters) to actually control the thing (IMHO). The pizza box format or "pultsender" has been popular with most competition level pilots in europe for years.

Like slowswede said, it's all about stability and control. In my avatar I'm using the Multiplex harness to secure my p4000 transmitter (see below). Although in my avatar picture I have one hand on the transmitter I could take both hands off and the tx does not move. Great for high-powered electrics knowing that the tx can't flail around and knock the motor on by accident. Also great for slope soaring when you need to walk to the landing area, sometimes over/through gates. But they do take some getting used to. I bought mine in 1999 to replace an old Futaba FF7 and my flying suffered initially.

One other advantage is the ability to place switches wherever you want them and assign them to do whatever you want. Nowadays this is less of an issue since most high-end transmitters allow you to assign switches to do whatever you want, although if Spektrum/JR/Futaba/Hitec put a 2-position switch where you would prefer a 3-position you are still stuck.

I like tray transmitters because I have a bad neck, so I use a cross-over strap for my Mpx P4000. I can fly all day long and I will not get tired in my neck, arms or my back. It is very relaxing to use cross-over strap.

And so, we must not forget that people often look at what others are using.
F3A pilots often use pult transmitters, but many of them use only a neck strap attached to the radio. It must be great pressure on the neck and back.
Glider pilots on the other hand often use cross-over strap, if not handheld like many F3F pilots do.

Well they are especially popular in my home country. The reason for this is that one hour with them on the air field substitutes already for half an hour being in the gym.

Personally I am flying my Futaba T12Z and T14Z holding the TX in my hands and controlling the plane with my thumbs and fingers. This is why I don't have an need for such a big pizza box.

People pick different radios for different reasons. Here in the UK it is fair to say Hitec have made no dent in the market when the switch to 2.4 occured. I have no brand loyalty and look at everything. For me Aurora was looked at and dismissed. I currently use Jeti in a Profi 4000 and will get a DC16 when it comes out no doubt.

Jeti price seems comparative to the competition from JR and Futaba. The Walkera looks good but they offer no choice in receivers for me.

Jeti were a winner for me based on RX's. I need everything from the 3g JST plugged micro RX for F3P to a big full ranged one for F3A.

I get out and about a fair bit and fair to say here Spektrum dominate followed a fiar way behind by Futaba. Seen a few Jeti as well as ACT and Weatronic systems. Have yet to see the Hitec outside of one of the bigger shops.

As for FCC approval I'm not sure Jeti seem to care. Was pointed out that the total European market is bigger than the US market. Maybe they feel that is big enough for them. Not alone there as the Multiplex system (of which I've seen a few) is not offered for sale in the US.

Hehe. I have to agree with you on that. He is kind of funny in some ways, but after a while it just gets annoying

Why he is Hitec religious? Well, he claims to fly Futaba's so who knows. He's most likely paid to try to influence users on this, and other, forums

It is a bummer that JETI will not consider a marine program.

If you look at this picture you will see an icon that says "User def BOAT" so perhaps they do have a marine model type in mind?

What special features or behaviours are needed for marine use?
