Where to Purchase Jeti
New to Jeti. I have 3 scale helis I will be building this winter. I was going to use Spektrum but instead use Jeti. I’ve already stocked up on some equipment and have Bavarian Axoms and all the servos and power systems like turbine, gasser, and Kontronic ESC etc as required. Where I stopped was the RXs. I also plan on purchasing a DS-24.

What is different about their Special Edition TXs?
Do you have to purchase all that software as I read someone posted on HF? Or are the additional special options?

I’ve been looking at Esprit and everyone says use Aeropanda. I look online and I see Jeti USA. I look further and see all three have the same zip code. Are they one in the same? Is there a particular rep I should talk to that favors helis?

I purschased my second Jeti TX from Esprit as well as the majority of RX (LHS now stocks some Jeti RX and batteries). I recommend a DS16 (dual freq.) as supports 24 channels. Granted 16 channels is plenty. There's a little learning curve, but that normal. Not to mention Esprit has a great support video aside from whats available on the web.

The special edition is subject to each owner. I went from a DS16 2.4 standard to DS16 2.4/900 Carbon Black Diamond ($100 cosmetic add-on).

I've always used Esprit for Jeti. Jeti USA is the central webpage. The equipment is all imported. Go with the dealer you're comfortable with.

Aeropanda vs Esprit - Haven't shopped Aeropanda. Esprit has always provided great service, prompt communicaiton and delivery. Its my go to for Jeti.

Thanks Sean 911sc. That does help me quite a bit. Is the Special Edition custom loaded with software and stick buttons and levers or specific options that the buyer wanted?

It sounds like Jeti has a base or basic edition and you add channels, satellites, and sensors you need or want. With other brands they are built-ins or internal like sensors. A
Are the Central 100 or 200 recommended?

A standard DS16 is fits the majority of users needs. The only option I've added was a lock-out switch for throttle hold (simple swap out). I haven't need to add any addtional software as of yet.

Jeti USA has a TX comparsion page: https://blog.jetiusa.com/jeti-trans...the-difference/

The ability to read sensors is included: 40 telemetry parameters with the DS16/24. The sensors simply connect to RX or extenders (similar to USB hubs on computers). Sensors are accessories.

Review the models avail and select one that mets your current needs and allows for growth.

Central 100 or 200: Depends on the project.

Re Aeropanda, Esprit, JetiUSA: Esprit is the the importer for Jeti and is the same company as JetiUSA. Aeropanda is a couple guys who used to work for Esprit but broke off and started their own shop.

I’ve gotten good service from both (I was part of the Esprit Flight Team about 12yr ago), however I order all my stuff from Aeropanda. Danny (one of the owners of Aeropanda) provides next level service and support and is a great guy. If he doesn’t have something from Jeti in stock he drives over to Esprit and gets it to ship out so your orders go out immediately. In addition they have a discount program that knocks down the price a bit as you earn points.

Esprit is also a good shop, but I prefer to support Aeropanda. Ultimately Esprit still gets part of any sale Jeti sale because they are the importer but the guys at Aeropanda work hard and deserve the business.

As for which radio to get there is a chart on the Jeti site that shows the features of the different models. Most of the modules don’t really apply to helis. Check out the DS12 SE, it’s much less money than the others and is much lighter and if you fly in the winter significantly better because the plastic case doesn’t freeze your hands. It does all the same things as the larger models.
