No Facebook?


As one of the last holdouts (no Facebook account), I appreciate folks re-posting info found on Facebook and other sites that not everyone accesses.

Thanks, very much appreciated.

Professional idiot
Don't have to use Facebook to see public pages. It is just another website you can visit.

I originally googled 'jetimodel' & 'facebook' & came up with this link which I simply bookmarked: https://www.facebook.com/jetimodel

Another useful link that I and others have posted recently is: http://www.jetiforum.de/

I don't think you even have to be a Facebook member to view certain profiles like Jeti.
Try this https://www.facebook.com/#!/jetimodel
All that is is Facebook is hosting the Jeti/facebook page. At one time it was AOL, now facebook and for most of us we're used to RCGroups.com. They are just hosts.

It should take you straight to the Jeti facebook page. You just can't make any comment unless you do have an member profile.

Oh should have read your post wildpalms. You already posted the link.

Does the DS-16 has a "shaker" as the Futaba 14SG?

Looking around the web, there are a few conflicting statements of the weight of the DS-16. I'd be very interested to know the size and weight from someone who has a DS-16, a tape measure, and a scale! Hint, hint @Zb/Esprit Model

No but it Talks, Sings, and has programmable alarms.

Hi, ca 1.2kg and size 210x230mm, the main body is 40mm thick. Shaker is not included but it will recognize when you shake it to the left or right :-)

Thanks, that's useful. :-) That doesn't show the dimension I'm most interested in though, which is the depth. Is it the same (40mm) as the DC-16?

Reason I ask, is that I mainly fly DLG, and the idea is that when you spin round, the model goes in the air and the transmitter stays in your hand, not the other way around! So it's important to be able to get a real good grip on it. Weight's important too - any chance of sticking it on the scales ?

Thanks,


Jony

I have the DC-16 and very impressed with it. I had a chance to pick up and handle the DS-16 at the AMA show, there are rubber grips on the bottom of the DS-16 for your fingers to wrap around providing a positive grip and very comfortable. The bottom of the TX is not flat like the DC-16, I would like to get a pair of the grips to install on the bottom of my DC-16. I replaced the long stick ends with very short ones so I can use my thumbs like a standard radio.

At first the DS-16 feels top heavy and tippy with the display on top but the sensation went away after a few minutes of handling. I think the grips made the difference.

A little note on the negative side, I purchased the double end neck strap (Deluxe) and find the 2 clips to be very low quality. One end is allmost impossible to open. Yesterday I was walking with my quad in my hands and the radio suspended around my neck and one of the clips managed to unlatch and droped the radio to the ground. No damage! I am going to replace the clips with something of better quality, a fabric outlet store nearby has a big selection to choose from. Please check the clips on the straps. The two neck strap brackets protected the front of the radio when it hit the ground.

Thanks, Ed

Actually with the Bluetooth TX module, does it carry audio out? Will it audio out hand shake with bluetooth ear buds etc? Thus remaining silent to others like a vibrate notice.
