Acrostar mk2 XL UPDATE!!!

The delivery of series product of Acrostar XL has started and here are some additional tipps / information.

The wing tube which is included in the kit, was changed due to my wish. More specifically the wall thickness has been enlarged to get a stronger tube. The new tube is also used by the manufacturer for another airplane. So It could be possible that you need to cut the tube around 10mm.

I recommend to modify the tail wheel as shown on the picture. Just one washer and no lock-nut between the bracket  and the wheel.

If you use long servo arms, it is useful to install the ball link below the servo arm. Otherwise the ball-linkage will touch the servoarm if you have big deflections.

 

I recommend to tape all control surfaces with flexible, transparent surgical tape.
The result is a much better effect of those functions.


JETI model duplex DS-12

Since almost half a year I tested the new JETI DS-12 in my airplanes.
In this report I would like to present some facts about this radio, because I really like it and it may helps someone to make a decision whether for or against the DS-12.

What I like:
– Software, menu navigation and even the battery charger!!! is same as all other JETI-radios
– Modelfiles exchangeable to all other JETI-radios (easily from DS-12 <-> DC/DS-14/16/24)
– extremely long battery runtime (In my case around 2 weeks)
– very lightweight radio
– includes the full JETI-Telemetry
– colored display which is even in bright sun good readable
– gimbals as in all JETI-radios with hall sensors
– integrated manual for all those who may not know to go ahead via „?-Button“
– various coloroptions for the radio, so everyone should find a color which suits 😉
– wireless connectable to all other JETI-radios as a trainer radio (I use this feature a lot with friends who test my airplanes)
– elegant and nice solutions directly from JETI also for all “tray-pilots“ (like DC-radios)
– optional 900MHz-TX for dual HF
– Update and telemetry visualization via JETI-Studio (similar to iTunes from apple)

What is the difference to the JETI high-class radios?
– only one 2,4-GHz HF, but dual 2,4GHz-HF-mode is possible
– optional 900Mhz HF-module
– some useful software upgrades are extra
– gimbals feeling little different compared to other JETI-radio due they are not fully aluminum
– box or case are optional

Conclusion:
After checking what the software and hardware is offering, after seeing the incredibly high quality and how it´s made plus the option to upgrade the radio to more features and more channels in my opinion the money for the DS-12 is well invested.
The idea of upgrading the radio via internet is not an idea from JETI, since years we use this technology in our smartphones and is just „state of the art“.
In my club there are also the first happy DS-12 users, some use it as main radio and others just as backup / trainer radio.
Even my father bought one DS-12 after playing with mine 😉

Athletes ceremony of Baden-Württemberg in Stuttgart

I followed the invitation from the secretary of state Baden-Württemberg, Volker Schebesta, to the new castle of Stuttgart on 11th of November. Sportswomen and sportsmen from more than 500 various sports classes were invited. All who achieved a podium ranking in 2018/2019 season in European or World Championships. My invitation was for the bronce medal on the 2018 European F3A Championship in Belgium.

In the white room of the castle the ceremony for athletics, bikers, boatmen… and aeromodellers too part! Besides me was one more rc-pilot. Marcus Haussmann, reigning F4H World Champion (scale class). I was happy to meet one more like-minded so we shared the experience together.

In small groups we went on stage to receive the gift from the president of the sports committee Baden-Württemberg, Mrs Menzer-Haasis.

 

After the official part during snacks we had the chance to meet and talk to more interesting people and exchange our experiences in our sport and events.

 

I was very pleased about this honor and want to thank the state of Baden-Württemberg for the event!

 


RT DESIGN duplex DC-24K

It all started when I was a boy with the Graupner MC-24 gold from my father. I thought it´s a cool and beautiful radio. That time I already knew I want such a transmitter someday!
Almost 15 years later I hold a JETI duplex DC-24 in my hands, with almost each part and switch 24-carat gilded. Probably the worlds one and only DC-24 with such a finishing. The name: DC-24K.
 
„When modern carbon meets classy gold to end up in world’s finest radio.“
 

But until I had it in my hands, it was a very long way. It took more than one year until the radio was completely finish. I think with the gold color it describes the quality and valence of this product best.

"Before gilding all aluminum parts, they have to be polished to a high level gloss and after that galvanic nickel-plated. 
The quality of the aluminum polish is decisive for the final result. Finally the galvanic 24 carat gold plating takes place." 
Only with the support of good friends we could realize this exclusive unique masterpiece.
Therefore a special thank you to: Lenka, Hendrik, Jörg, Jürgen, Jakub and JETI model!
