I am upgrading my 2nd Rex with a Mega 16/15/3 and I have a
Jeti 30 3 plus ESC will this work? Planned on using a Thunder Power 3 cell 2100.
I am still in the "nervous when I fly" stage. Is this a good setup?

Thanks,

Mike

Do not use Jeti ESC unless they are followed by "Heli".
As an exemple : Jeti Master HELI 40-3P
Without the "Heli" your esc is a standard flight controler and will not
allow you to land softly when your battery is exhausted.
Standard ESC = Hard cut-off when low voltage reached.
Of course, you could be safe if you add a lipo - guard or a safe lipo ( a kind of device monitoring voltage and sound-or-light warning you when current drops).
Also be aware that your Jeti 30 is not suitable for 4S lipo.
Found this, hope it helps : http://www.strat.at/download/Sensorless_EN.pdf

I'm sorry but you are incorrect.

You can set any of the controllers up with hard or soft cutoff. I had to do this to mine. I've also flown it down to LVC, and got a soft cutoff. The only thing different about the HELI controllers is that you can choose either standard motor control or use gorvering mode.

So far I don't have a "heli" esc in any of my birds. Most helis cannot maintain hover long before LVC kicks in.
The only problem I have with Jeti(I have 5 of them) is they are a bit large and heavy, but if you have one go for it!

Thanks, the majority seems to feel it's ok to use. I'll give it a try.

Thanks,

Correct me if I'm wrong but there's no soft start with that esc is there?
I've seen a friend hand spin the rotor before moving the throttle stick forward. He said he did it to prevent the motor Mega from stripping the main gear.

Look at http://www.strat.at/download/Sensorless_EN.pdf
When it is not explicitly mentionned, it is NOT implemented.
So No soft start, no governer mode, ...
I have 2 Jeti, none have a soft start and I do like nrthwing's friend : hand spin the rotor before moving the throttle stick (but it is not to prevent stripping the main gear since it is a auto rotation hub)

Sounds like it has a soft cut-off to me.

Final solution
OK thanks for all the input. After much research the Jeti (my model) does not have a soft start function. This is not good for helis!

I have sent it back to the dealer and just tonight purchased a Castle Creations 35 amp.
Case closed. I feel better not having to quess and wonder.

I really like the CC ESC and the USB link makes programming a breeze. I have three of the Castle Creations EScs and they have worked flawlessly.

Thanks for all the input. I can always count on good feedback from my rc brothers.

hi
are these Jeti 30-3 programmable?? I have one, bought it used.. it has red shrinkwrapping.. Can I program the cutoffs?

I read somewhere that I need a program "card" to do this?
