Exhaust dimensions can easily be attained from a full drawing.

5 mins on Google and I found lots of different pics with dimensions, not that hard to do dale. Maybe some companies don't want to show everything. Does Cadbury tell everyone how they make their caramilk bar

Perhaps the new Jeti has the boys a bit apprehensive?

They build extremely fast. It even come with the stab extensions run through. This could be built in a weekend if a person had everything in hand.

Will definitely be fun for the 30 flights it sees this year!!!
Good news Jack. Can't wait to see you fly it

Don't think so, its the same ole story, "luv to fly but everyone can come up here". New old rule, after the third invite, I quit asking. The one guy wants some used servos.... and I'm building a kit plane for the guy, for free. Geez I'm stupid! But you guys knew that !

I'm happy to just to fly, isn't a team sport anyway!

Ah the Jeti, I am grounded using it until I get the gizmo to re-program the only Rx I have for it. Would work but I can't set the fail-safes programmed. Stuff happens when there is limited number out there.... not blamin' anyone, its part of the learnin' curve.

You're thinkin' you'll need the failsafes on the first Jeti flight?

Something I never use...personal preference thingy though!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Honest question.
Will you need to update the next (as in a new) receiver?

This must be a difference in the versions once the transmitter is current.
I fully expect they had a fail-safe when released.
