Joacim,

That's serious e-power!

We have been waiting word on the new Jeti 12s and 15s ESCs here in the states but have not heard anything. Can you tell us anything about these new units?

Thanks.

What i know is that they are on the way, and should be relesed in europe any time now, keep an eye on http://www.flightpower.co.uk/
they should have them soon.


Thinking of testing 29 or 30" prop to break the 10kw barrier will do some more flying today. After 5min flight time, the system was cold and i had only used 1800mAh.

Posted maiden flight here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=542947
