Default Jeti Mezon ESCs

Anyone tried one of these in a pattern plane?

Nope, just waiting for you to give them a test and let us know how it goes.... ;-)

I probably will. The weight of the 90 looks good (80 gm) and I'd like to try the BEC. It has to work as good as the Futaba/OS, and if it does I'll go for it. Somebody must have tried it.

Jim, I have always had good luck with my Jeti controllers (except early Spin models) so would be tempted also. Are they available yet?

Jim, what is the bottom line on the Futaba/OS? Pluses and minuses?

Thanks,

Thanks,
Pros:
1) It does everything I want an ESC to do.
2) Easy to program, quantitative settings in most cases.
3) Starts at idle with flip of switch, no need to jog throttle to get it to start.
4) Comes on and off brake with one click of throttle stick making brake functional on landings.
5) No anomalies like screeching under any conditions.
6) Runs very cool. Peak temps about 20F above ambient.
7) Reasonable price. $149 today. Available from well established source that can support the product.
8) I forgot - no spark.

Cons:
1) A little heavy - 4.4 ounces
2) Limited extras. Does store highest rpm during flight.

Until I see the Mezon I'd say it is the best buy out there.

Thanks for the recap!

I like the CC Ice2 as well, especially data logging, but I really wish the braking could be cranked above 30% without the screech.

I've got a Caelestia which is a surprisingly slippery airframe considering its volume, and it definitely accelerates on downlines and would probably benefit from more braking. However, I am "downpropping" to a Mejzlik 20.5x12 wide blade to see if that works. If that alone doesn't do the trick, I will likely try another ESC with better braking capability.

Looking forward to your observations about the Mezon...
