Obake - what hasn't been sufficiently explained here is how signal strength is interpreted by the system. AFAIK, the 'Low Signal' warning given by the transmitter is based on the level of signal strength being received BACK from the receiver, which gives the telemetry functions. This signal can be lost completely, yet you will still retain full control over the model. I take the 'Low Signal' warning as just that and will normally head the model back toward me on the rare occasions that I receive it. As Wildpalms has stated, the dbm figure is of no real consequence to most users and, here, has only served to confuse.

From my working days, my marketing colleagues would often complain that we engineers sometimes tended to confuse the customer with facts. I can almost hear that conversation taking place in Jeti at this moment!

Of course the more damning criticism levelled at us, usually through gritted teeth, was that an engineer, when put under pressure, was inclined to tell the truth!

Signal Alarm


Simple said, the “Signal” alarm comes on after you loose telemetry downlink from receiver. Because the attenuation of the receiver downlink is higher, you loose data telemetry coming down but you still have control of the model. It’s kind of clever way of letting you know that you are getting to the edge of the range. I used R18 w/Satellite on my 6m/30 lbs. Scale Ventus 2cx, model was 400m/1300’ high and almost 500m/1650’ from me and the model was still fine, but I could not see anything. That was extreme, will not do it again.

FCC Update DC-16, R11/9/7 & JetiBox Profi


We would like to announce major step towards FCC certification. As of October 24, 2012 we have finished all required tests and officially filed documentation for FCC certification of DC-16 transmitter, R11/9/7, R6/6i receivers and JetiBox Profi.

As of now we are expecting to be officially ready to start selling and fully supporting Jeti Duplex 2.4GHz products on the US market in next 7-14 days.

We would like to extend our gratitude to all customers who stayed with us and keep supporting us during these difficult times.

Just placed my order for a DC16, a couple RSATs, brackets, and a tray.

I was going to wait until next week hoping for a Halloween coupon might show up in my email but there was only 1 tray left in stock and I didn't want to let that disappear!

I've never flown a tray radio, and there are no tray radios being flown in my local clubs...but I'm very keen to make the switch, but I'd like to fondle and fingerprint one first.

I've only been flying by thumb for 35 years, so I'm concerned I'll hate it, even though I want to like it. I don't make changes to my Tx easily or often. I flew the same JR 10X for 20 years before buying the 11X. I looked at a lot of TX's before buying the 11X, and it was the feel and the ergonomics that made the sale.

Are there going to be any dealers, where I might handle one? Or are these only available from Esprit?
