This might not make sense to folks from Europe, but I told them when I saw it here, that if they want to sell a bunch in Florida they should offer it an alligator skin.

I am not worried about that:

- The material is Alcantara. This is a 100% composite and easily cleaned.
- The two sections that are covered are clip-on-clip-off, so replacement or even for cleaning is very easy.

The main advantage of this covering is that the transmitter has a very secure feel and will not slip from your grip, even when you have sweaty palms during that competition sequence.

Cheers,

JanR

I’ve been flying mine over a month now, purposely not cleaned any part of it to see how the finish goes. It’s been handled by dozens of people and even today at a jet meeting where we had Kero on our hands, it does not get messy. If one of the people who blast glow engine exhaust over it, or are just plain messy with fuels...does not matter what the finish is!
I’ve seen 3 month old Txs that look like they have been buried in a garden...

I have only been flying EDF and props so far as some of the jet related programming was not installed into my Core Tx. That’s about to change, so my CARF Joker is ready to go Core. Martin Pickering was flying Core at Jet Power this year and the Elster 3-D boys too.

Best Regards

Dave

Can you elaborate on this? Does the transmitter have voice output?

It’s a latched on off button. You have to press and hold, release and press immediately and it powers up and down. A bit like the Digi and Gemini switch.

Yes, and if you name a function (write the description you want) and it will speak that to you...:-)

I was waiting for the latest software so I could use flight modes and now the weather is not playing ball. We have 40 mph winds this weekend again. There are quite a few of the test guys flying the Core in turbine models, as with any system there are ways of programming to get gyros etc working without FM and other options not activated in the original two software releases.
I’ll report when I have had the chance, we know the radio link is solid, the programming options will expand through the first few months after release and there are many plans in place for the future, the Linux processor allows so much flexibility. The telemetry system is going to be one of the fastest, almost real time update speed. The Bluetooth also allows communication with external devices. It’s mind blowing what is possible.

Interesting....would it be a transmitter that would persuade me to trade in my Jetti?
