Nope, this is like blaming computer that it did something wrong. Computer did exactly what it was told by Human programmers. We do not have AI, or none I have ever seen yet.

I am 1000% positive that somebody assigned/programmed something wrong. We have literally thousands of Assist receivers out there.

I consider trim buttons one of the best feature of my DS-16. For thumb flyer, the location is just perfect. Whoever designed it knew what he was doing for sure. In natural circular motion without releasing the grip, I drop my thumb right on the buttons. From there, I can feel which one is right-left-up-down. Now, I hate those trim tabs on my 12X.

Espirit, I was standing right next to the pilot when this happened. He rolled fast on high rate and all rates went to low. Moved the switch to low rate, then back to high and high rates returned. He did it again, rates went to low (without him touching anything) he tried toggling the switch to get high rates back and they never came back. At that point he didn't have enough altitude to recover.

I have a DS16 and love it. Haven't tried the assist receivers yet. Not trying to start something, just vouching for Ed.

I’ve known him for almost 20 years and trust me, we have had many arguments.
I truly wish he would stay off the forums.

I'd bet the percentage of customers and potential customers who look at FG or RCG is relatively low, and of those I'd be the percentage who are going to let Zb's behavior get in the way of using a really nice radio is also really low.
I'd also bet that there are people who watch the videos / follow the links is Zb's offensive posts and get interested, maybe some that even buy something. Nobody would admit to that especially in a conversation like this one of course, but it might happen enough to make up for the tiny tiny number of sales he looses by alienating people.

I have a Jeti DS-16 and I love it, and I'll buy more Jeti stuff.
I am annoyed by Zb's behavior on the forums.
I can live with that dissonance.

I fly Jeti. I could care less about ZB's (?) behaviour online. My only bitch is a have to turn the volume up on his Jeti Short's video's because I can barely hear him.

Hello ZB, I know I asked this on the RCGroups forum, but I think it got lost in the clutter.

Do you know when the new CB2XX central box will come in that can support the ditex servo telemetry feed? A student project I'm advising wants to know since their aircraft will fit a CB200-sized module, but a CB400 might cause issues.

Thanks!

WoW didn't know you own a full size plane, you must be rich too.
the Jeti owner could have much more $$$ in his bank account even though europe is his main market place

Lol
You donít need to be rich to own an airplane. You just need to be willing to work hard and put your hard earned money towards what you want

I have owned JR, Futaba, and now Jeti. I go for the features and functions of a radio or any equipment i use in my birds. With that being said, I love my Jeti DS24 and my wife loves hers too!! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that is what is supposed to be great about this country. So, if you don't like a particular brand or a person, the choice on what to do should be obvious!!! Go with what makes you happy!!

I don't understand all the ZB haters. I have yet to read something that I thought was offensive. Those who complain about him would probably not buy Jeti anyways.
