Default Body material question.

On Jeti's website it mentions a Magnesium body rather than aluminum.

http://www.jetimodel.com/index.php?page=article&id=25

It shows the page was updated in September of this year, but it also says available Summery of 2012.

Is this information just out of date?

Main advantages:

- magnesium body
- aluminium sticks variable in length with bearings
- scanning sticks position by hall sensor
- 4096 throttle steps resolution
- 3,8 inch display with backlight, 320 x 240 pixels
- internal 2 GB memory
- digital trims
- full telemetry in real time on a main display
- recording telemetry data
- integrated antenna
- jack headphones
- loudspeaker
- USB mini connector for PC connection
- firmware upgradable

interesting - its only the English translation on their side that says magnesium. In German (Metallgehäuse) and in Czech (kovový obal) it simply says metal case.

So it most likely is a translation mistake.

I would guess its a magnesium/aluminium alloy. 5000 series alloys I guess.
