Is the Jeti DC-16 good for sailplanes? You bet it is.


Just to open up the choices people have and for those who don't know about this radio yet, the Jeti DC-16 and the DS-16 are very nice radios and can do anything you like for sailplanes.

I have had an JR 9303, a JR 12X, an Airtronics SD-10G and they are very good radios, but it took me a while to learn their programming idiosyncrasies, which I never did very well. For me, the Jeti is pretty much a breeze. I'm not saying it has more bells and whistles (which I like), just that for my aging brain it made sense more easily.

Here are links to 2 threads about it. They aslo have great videos showing the features and programming steps.

I won't go into all the details about what it does. If you're interested you can find them here: http://www.espritmodel.com/jeti-cz.aspx

Yes, it is. Been shipping in the U.S. for a few weeks now! I've got mine about two weeks ago.

Interesting since I could have sworn that ZB told me at the AMA show it was not yet certified. Maybe I heard wrong? Beautiful looking radio with great features.

Your information is out of date. Go to their website. Plenty of them available today. Both the tray version DC-16 and the thumbs version DS-16. http://www.espritmodel.com/jeti-dupl...o-systems.aspx

I am having a blast with mine (in New Hampshire). I hope this clears up any confusion.
