TBT: Head Back To 1978!

A note from another satisfied Jeti customer.

Recently, I purchased a Jeti radio system (DS-14). I wanted to let you know I have been flying RC for 62 years and this Jeti radio is by far the best radio I have ever owned. In the past, I have been on the Futaba and JR teams but this Jeti radio system is exceptional. It brings back the excitement I felt when I first started to fly. The controls are ultra smooth. I have won the National Championship Pylon Race (1978) and have continued to compete all these years so I know a good radio system. I plan on using the radio at the 2017 NATS and wanted to sincerely thank Chief Aircraft for making it possible for me to possess such a quality piece of equipment.

Regards,

John McDermott

Well John, we are happy to hear you are pleased! Good luck at the NATS, and thank you for sharing with us this great photo from your 1978 win!

To All The “Heroes” – Today Is For You

“A father is someone you look up to no matter how tall you’ve grown.”

-Unknown

There are many things my father and I spent time doing growing up, but I particularly remember tagging along with him to the flying field. Little did I know that it would become a huge part of my adult life. He inspired me, and although the part of the hobby that interests him is different from what I have grown to enjoy,  he will forever be my role model. It is wonderful when we (as a shop) head to events and see all the awesome fathers who bring their kids, teach them, and show them just how fun this hobby can be. We are lucky to have great fathers like that in our very own shop. So here’s to all those DADS out there – Today is for you! Keep on showing us things, and we will keep on learning!

New Opale Power 2.7 Paramodel

The Power 2.7 made a big impression on us when we flew over canyons in the Southwestern US. With the strong and changing wind conditions we faced during these flights, we can say that the Power 2.7 was tested under the toughest conditions. These were truly unforgettable moments for the test pilots. And for those who think that we just scaled up the Power 1.1, rest assured that this wing was designed and developed, from the drawing board to the production model, with the same longing for perfection that guides all Opale development. The results of that single minded pursuit; simply astonishing.

Jeti Data Logging and Data Display, Useful or Useless?

Recently we have gotten many questions about how data logging and the capability to immediately display data on your transmitter screen post flight can help you become a better pilot. There are many areas where the Jeti system answers all your questions giving you detailed information about performance of individual components that could explain, improve or even prevent a catastrophe. We have to remember that the Jeti Transmitter is a scientific instrument and in our hands it will become the indispensable tool which helps us with improving performance, enjoyment, and safety of our hobby.

Jeti systems enable you to display, modify, delete, zoom in/out, and compare sets of data at any time without using the computer. All of this happens in your hands at the field. Once you finish your flight you will be holding all the answers to your questions in your hands. The Jeti System displays the activated alarms and all telemetry data right in front of you.

Live Equipment Test

Rx A1 Antenna Signal Strength Am I getting 9, should I relocate antenna?
Rx A2 Antenna Signal Strength Am I getting 9, should I relocate antenna?
Rx Q Signal Quality Am I getting 100%, should I relocate the receiver?

Live System Optimization

Mezon Battery Amp (A) How many Amps is system pulling with current propeller?
Mezon Battery Voltage (V) How is battery voltage holding in correlation to the load?
Motor RPM What is the correlation between battery voltage and RPM?

Post Flight Evaluation

SBEC Current (A) Are the servos overloading the Rx or BEC?
ESC Temperature Increases over time, Am I overheating the ESC?
Motor Temperature Increases over time, Am I overheating the Motor?

Post-Crash Diagnostics (Unfortunately in Happens)

Rx A1 Antenna Signal Strength Did we lose any of the antennas, were they shielded or damaged?
Rx Q Signal Quality Was the 2.4Ghz spectrum clear, any interference?
SBEC Output Voltage Did we lose power over the flight?
