Default Jeti Mezon with Plettenberg Advance 30-10

This may be a cop out, but does anyone have a list of all the program settings for a pletty advance 30-10 on a jeti mezon 90? I have never used a jeti spin or mezon and I am not sure what all of the settings should be.

A step by step list of every single parameter would be fantastic. I am using a Futaba 18mz so fixed endpoints starting points would be appreciated.

I'm sure the info is posted here somewhere but my searches haven't helped.

Here is what I use with the Jeti Spin, should be similar I would guess. I still adjust the endpoints on the 18 to get it exactly right, but it will get you close.

Temp Protection - 100C
Brake - Manual
Dead time - 0s
Initial - 30%
End - 46%
Brake Speed - 0.5s
Operation - Normal
Timing - 24 degrees
Frequency - 8 khz
Acceleration - 0.5s
Accumulator Type - Li-Ion/Pol/Fe
# of cells - 4
Cut off - 2.8v
Off voltage set - 11.98
Cut off - Slow down
Initial Point - Fix
Fix initial point - 1.1ms
End Point - 1.9ms
Auto Inc End Point - Off
Throttle Curve - Linear
Rotation - Left
Start up power - Auto
Setting thr. RC - Off

Steve,

Remember to set your receiver to low speed mode when you use your Jeti Box to read the high and low throttle pulse for setting your fixed end points. The jeti box won't read the pulse with your receiver in high speed mode. then set the receiver back to high speed mode then your done.

By the way does the Essence have a servo hatch cover for the rudder like the Episode does? How about the servo for the elevator?

Hi Glen,

Thanks for the tip, that will save me some time scratching my head. I think I have it set up, I walked through things with Andrew Jesky on the phone last night.

The Essence servo arrangement is nearly identical to the BiSide. The servos are exposed and easily accessible. If you go with the fixed stab option, instead of the standard flying stab, then the servos mount inside the stab halves just like the Nuance and Episode.

The Mezon allows for fine tuning the Start Power (I don't remember what the Spin allows) and I found it makes a noticeable difference in how smooth the motor starts. I'm running it on Neu/Contra setups and find the lower the better so they are set to Auto -50 the lowest setting. The Neu is a 4 pole motor so I would assume a higher setting might be better on the Plettenburg.

Hi Jim,

I have not played with the start power on the Jeti Spin, so I don't know what options are available. With the Advance motor and Auto setting it starts very smooth, so have never had a reason to adjust it.

With Neu, I found the start power at -20 is adequate with APC props for a smooth start. For lighter falcon carbon fiber V2 props, the -20 setting still gives an impression of rough start. -50 as suggested by Jim probably is the way to go.

3 blade question and problem. will a 3 blade Falcon 19.5x13 work on a Plettenberg Advance 30-10 with a YGE 90HV? I think I just ruined the motor.

Chad,

Wondering why you have # of cells - 4. Should that be set to 10?

Thanks
Rick
