Great that you are writing up your experience with the Jeti. I am at the same cross roads as you were, have a 12x love the radio but would like to move to something that has telemetry and do not know what to buy so I will be following you closely. I am concerned that programming will be somewhat difficult at first. Please keep us posted interested in the radio. Thanks.Well after 12 long days I finally got my hands on a Jeti. Initial impressions are DAMN, this thing is nice. Surprisingly comfortable in my hands, it is heavy, heavier than my 12x was for sure. Build quality looks second to none. I was kind of suprised on the yellow color however. I was expecting like a Ducati or Ferrari shade of yellow, it's labeled "Sunburst Yellow" on the website but the box it came in is labeled "Dark Yellow" which is kind of a cub yellow but it looks really nice, I really like it.
I updated the firmware in the TX and the R7 RX, easy no problems. Then I setup my first model, I was a little concerned reading through the manuals that it was going to be complicated, but it was pretty easy. As you guys said once you setup a model it all makes sense and it does.
Due to the weight I may try the neck strap, I've only tried one once before and didn't like it. This felt pretty comfortable so I'm going to give it a try again. If not I'm sure it will be fine to hold it old school style.
So far I like it!
