We have gained two new employees! Our unofficial company birds – a few Sandhill Cranes – have become parents to two more offspring. Welcome Pepe and Pipi! It is such a joy to come to work and see these little, fluffy guys (even though they won’t stay little for very long). The addition of these two, there are four other Sandhill Cranes living on/around the grounds. In about three months time, these colts will be several feet tall, and by eighteen months, they will have reached adult size.
Now that the OV-10 Bronco build is complete, it is time to start something else. What do you think of a little TopModel CZ, Jetec, and Jeti action? We are thinking of installing the Jetec Sailplane power launching system into our TopModel ASH 31 Mi Scale Sailplane… and of course we will be running Jeti!
Jeti user John D. got to maiden his Seagull Models Ercoupe last weekend, and by all reports it flew great!
The Ercoupe model is built with balsa and plywood, allowing it to be sturdy and light. It has a wingspan of over eight feet and is over five feet long! On this particular model, John is running a REX12 Assist receiver, 900mHz backup receiver and R3/RSW double path redundancy, an Elite 35cc electric motor, Mezon EVO 85HV ESC, 12s battery set up, Fiala 20×8 prop and Promodeler servos.
It is that time – time to say good bye to our beloved Jeti Test Drive FunCubs. Both of these beautiful airplanes are up for sale, each being sold for $375.00 USD.
These are store demo aircraft, like NEW, only used a few times for demonstration purposes. The model is a Multiplex FunCub 55” (1400mm) Battery & Rx Ready sport aerobatic airplane equipped with motor, ESC, servos & removable battery tray. Models have been expertly built and detailed at our shop, they are no longer needed in our fleet.

It is always cool to see what you guys (our readers, builders, and pilots) are up to. A big thanks to Mr. Rick Davey for sending us this awesome video of a test run on his recently acquired Nieuport 24bis.
The Nieuport 24bis is a 1/3 scale model that sports a 107″ wingspan and weighs 53 pounds. However, this particular model is quite impressive because it was built without any servos in the wings or tail. Instead of servos, Alan Yendle (the builder) designed the model so that the control surfaces operated through a series of cables and torque rods, as in the full-scale version. As Mr. Davey also explained, this aircraft is rather unique. The original, full-scale aircraft flew for the first time in 1917, but would never make it into service. The design was flawed and needed a tail from the Nieuport 17 to fly correctly – hence the “bis” designation after the name. “Bis” indicated “diversion or change”. Once the issue was solved, the aircraft went into service under the name Nieuport 24.
Let’s take a look at what Mr. Davey has set up inside! Of course, he trusts his Nieuport to Jeti (we knew that), but you might be wondering “what exactly does he use?” Well, we found out! He flies a DC-24 transmitter, which you can see (and hear) in the video. Currently, he runs four Jeti receivers in conjunction with a Central Box 320. His primary receiver is a Jeti R12 REX Assist, a standard R12 as a backup, an R3 REX 900 as his 900mhz failsafe, and an R3/RSW used as a wireless switch. The receivers are powered by two Jeti Ion 5200mAh battery packs. The engine is a Moki 250cc engine, pumped with a Hacker fuel pump regulated to 30% output with overflow. The fuel system is finished with a Rotoflo tank and a servo on the choke. He runs Jeti and Hacker servos where servos are needed, has a custom propeller from Seidel Props, and a pilot (Andre) from Axel Scale Pilots.
Check out what Mr. Davey has to say about the video and his Jeti DC-24 System.
I wanted to show in the video how I hand start a COLD Moki 250cc engine, and to showcase the Jeti radio I fly, a DC-24, especially the “sound on events” feature. Announcing the actions of the switches is a significant safety feature. No time to have a senior moment, I’m 75. When you fly several complicated planes with the same radio, switches often have different functions, depending on the model. It’s a great double check, a refresher, and coupled with the PreFlight feature in the radio, makes things much safer.
The Windex 1200C is a powered sailplane for amateurs construction build by WINDEXAIR AB. Windex 1200c is primarily a high-performance sailplane, but its unique concept with a low-drag fin-mounted engine installation and a variable-pitch propeller turns it also into an efficient touring aircraft with a cruising speed of 210km/h (130 mph). In addition to this the airframe of Windex 1200C is designed for aerobatic routine. The model is very well reproduced and belongs into the super scale class, with its outstanding cockpit interior, beautiful gel-coated finish and excellent flying characteristics. Flying is just amazing due to the acceptable wing loading, it thermals well without any bad behavior and smooth and predictable handling.
But, what are we running in it?!? Jeti of course! We have no worry when it comes to this guy. Jeti’s redundancy gives us that piece of mind we need to focus on our flying. Check it out.
