2) the eme60 and gp61 are forces to be reckoned with Anyone that would buy a da60 needs some bolts tightened in their heads,with such smooth potent alternatives, lol

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I flew glow today. The magic 300th (likely missed a few in the book) logged flight for the year! I only own 4 gas engines, and have had good luck with the DLE30/DLE55/DA50R and the EME120.

Out here in the toolies I can only dream (and read) about the other Brands of engines. Now I'll shut up and watch the show!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Let's talk TX's tonight, well for a bit anyway.

What about the new to N. America Jeti 16.

Few of them around. Anyone had a chance to own/try one?

I need (want) a new TX, although I have a Futaba shirt wondering if the Jeti is a viable option.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Lots of reading today!
Well I'm home, hide in the Dungeon while Arlene watches the Ball game. I'll be up to "Check" the score a few times
I have no intentions of changing brands of transmitters. Mostly because I'm just getting real comfortable with the potential of my current equipment.
