Re: Over 20kg model question

Re: Redundant receiver Jeti module

Looks like a clever little thing! The trouble is, it reintroduces a single point of failure into critical flying controls. If one of these is fitted to the elevator channel, if it fails you could well be left with no elevators at all. All the multiple batteries, redundant switches & dual receive...
