Just did a Jeti/Mezon update to mine. Ordered new arms for it as I used some leftover stuff that was way too big. My EPAs were in the 60s on the rudder.

Enterprise,

Do you have access to a Jeti Spinbox? If so you will want to program the controller to all the normal settings but the big one to change is the start power, it should be changed from Auto+0 to Auto+30 percent.

I have the DS-16 radio so I can do that in the radio. I also have a Profi if I need to do changes otherwise. I am running the A60-8S, but I assume the setting is the same as the 5S. Timing is set to 15 and I think the manual says to run a higher setting.
