Mounting the JETI Box Mini to the Graupner MX16s Transmitter

August 15th, 2010

Last week I received the JETI Box Mini from RC-easy. Perfect timing after the modification of my MX16s with the JETI 2.4GHz Transmitter.

So I mounted the JETI Box on my Transmitter and here are some pictures:

This is the JETI Box Mini:

Now I had to find a nice place where I can mount the Box to the MX16s. I decided to place the Box directly in the middle of the transmitter.

Then I put the signal wires of the JETI Box through the hole

Modification of Graupner MX16s to JETI System (35 MHz – 2,4GHz switchable)

August 10th, 2010

Some weeks ago I decided to buy a new remote control for my Mikrokopter(s). I took the standard model (MX16s from Graupner) which is recommended for Mikrokopter pilots.

At the same time I had to think about 2.4 GHz remote control – But I would like to have the choice between the two frequency bands (35 MHz and 2.4 GHz) so I modified the MX16s 35 MHz remote control with the JETI System to have the ability to switch between 2.4 GHz and 35 MHz at any time.

So I can use 35 MHz for FPV flights and 2.4 GHz for “normal” training or fun flying. (Maybe I will buy a 5.8 GHz video set in future, but that is not a requirement in the moment.)

Below you can find step-by-step pictures of the modification of the MX16s remote control.

Good luck with your modification and happy flying 😉
