Hmm, yeah. Servos ain't what I had in mind mulling F vs S. S worked perfect in the RF dept every time I just got cheesed at them doling out tech a bit at a time and hitting your wallet every time and still being miles behind OS etc. Maybe they have caught up a bit. Saw a couple tid-bits but have not really studied it close.

Man I wish I owned or had use of a private field, I would give everybody the middle finger and use whatever I want.

It's not as if IC is actually going give a flying hoot unless there is a complaint.

Re: FCC IC and Insurance

Yes I know servos aren't part of the issue but the fingers just typed it in.....LOL. I know when Jeti USA/Esprit began bringing in the Jeti radios that they had the shipment on hand when they had submitted the transmitters and receivers to the FCC for certification and as soon as the approval numbers came rolling in they labeled and shipped. I don't know if you might want to call their operating system an open OS or not but many of the more knowledgeable guys
are really helping in aircraft setups as there are many ways in which a person can do it . One is not stuck with any particular format to get the job done. I don't recall if there were any fixes but earlier in the year they did an operating/program update ( or addition) adding in more channels and features/flexibility ; including Quad programming. While the quad programing , apparently not perfect was a start as I don't think quads are as popular in Europe as in NA and Asia . From what I hear is that Jeti , unlike Futaba , does listen to users "wants" and they try to get it right the first time before release.

Re: FCC IC and Insurance

Brent : all your Jeti transmitters bought in NA will have the IC number attached and same with the receivers. If the receivers are even number of channels those may have been bought outside of NA and not certified. All odd numbered channel receivers should be certified as that was what was shipped to NA for sale. That way, if service was ever required then Jeti USA would know as NA distributors will not touch off shore equipment. At least that is what I have gathered in most cases.

http://www.espritmodel.com/jeti-usa-...nly-radio.aspx

Here is a link to Jeti's latest very low cost budget radio that is compatible with Jeti receivers and telemetry. Very ,very low budget; but not for me .

At the moment ; on Esprits r/c website they have shown the bridge setup ; again; on how to setup a simple Spektrum bridge , to be able to operate all the Bind'N'fly aircraft.

Re: FCC IC and Insurance

All that is lovely but of no help. We can all see what is IC and what is not.

It sure won't be Jeti that I will switch to. Could prob rent a private field for the rest of my life and do what I want for what it woild cost to outfit with Jeti.

Going to have to spin over to the field while there is some flying season left and see if I can get some different Tx guys to show me how programming works on Futaba or JR or whatever theu have. Maybe some hands on will help.

If anybody is actually interested in this, believe me, don't hold your breath.

Anybody have a good DX18G2 for sale?

Re: FCC IC and Insurance

I have some 12 and 10 channel Jeti REX receiver and they have IC and FCC certification on them.

I spoke to Jeff at Thunderbolt RC and he assure me that all Jeti Transmitter and transceiver (that the way they call telemetry capable receivers now) he sell are IC and FCC certified.

Re: FCC IC and Insurance

Yes, yes. We all know the situation with Jeti which is a non-starter at the prices.

Did you ask him about Graupner?

Thanks Mike....I guess the initial batch of odd number channels were the first to get IC and then they must have added the others when the new dual input telemetry plugs were added as the REX series

Re: FCC IC and Insurance
