I am 73 yr old and don't really want to stand out like a young race horse so I got the black one also ... but several months before it was released I saw the ads for the Jeti 's new aluminum Tx holder and their tx was black but had red carbon fiber hand grip type pads and it really hit me that I do want some color on my TX ... So I looked on line and found some red raised carbon fiber vinyl and put some on ... thinking it would also help the gripping just a little as pure plastic is kind of slick . Any how this is what I finally came up with . Enjoy

I also fly several VTOL aircraft including an expensive Rotormast V-22 and with no side slide lever on the DS -12 I could not fly it comfortably ... and the work around of putting a lever on the top rotatory knob was in such a twisted position that these old fingers could not do it comfortably .
So I decided to mod the TX case and stick the ch 6 rotatory knob pot on the side of the case and install a blank switch in place of the rotatory knob on top
Now I can move it comfortably with my index finger . It looks like a sore thumb on the TX ,,but my fingers are not the ones being sore ,,,, to bad Jeti didn't make it to have indented ones like all the other TX's that they make ?????
Again enjoy

It has the wren 44 turbine / SK 360 FC with a Spartan 670 tail gyro ,, BLS251 futaba DS tail servo, and JR DS 8717's cyclic .
Low hours ( 10 hrs) It really flies great ..and the sound of a turbine is just awesome .
It has only been flown normal type helicopter flight - no crashes .I really hate to sell it but life is getting in the road right now , so I would rather it go to a new home where it gets a chance to get off the shelf .

I need to get 4850.00 plus shipping on this ... don't really need to sell ,,but hate not being able to find enough time /energy to fly it .
Will be some what broke down to save on shipping as it is big ....Continue Reading

And just these two do all the flight control for hover and airplane flight .

Notice the big scoop (marked in pink on the first page ) that goes down into the fan blast to bleed roll control air off to the wingtips.
