The fedex guy just dropped mine off, I gotta say the quality and feel of the tx is amazing, the gimbal action is the best I have ever felt on any TX!!! also the case is really nice and esprit did a great job packing it, thanks esprit for bringing these TX's to the states!!!

Chris

PS. any news on when we might see the usps man dropping off the rx's? I can't wait to set it up on some of my smaller models to start flying on it.

Hi Guys,

What do you think about starting a thread on DC-16 programming?

If you search back past the recent posts related more to release dates & marketing etc then there have been quite a few posts relating to using the radio and programming it. Several core threads on the DC-16 as well as this one.

Dave, I was suggesting as we new users deal with programming issues, we can look in one thread that is devoted to this topic rather than sorting through this more general thread.

Great suggestion to start a new thread, even when it is for fixed wing pilots.
Please let us know.

Regards,

PAT

Yes, this is a good idea. +1 on JETI DC-16 thread for programming solutions.

Still waiting on mine, but I did request it ship with the receivers and other JETI goodies that I ordered. Maybe in a week or so I get mine. I can be patient.

Looking forward to next week, my DC-16 and accessories arrives Tuesday and my Bergen turbine heli arrives Wednesday.

Let's all keep our fingers crossed the FCC cuts the receivers loose on Monday so we can have them in our hands and hopefully flying by next weekend!

Can you please create a guide of how to switch to PPM on an R9?

We are hoping for tomorrow (Monday). I was hoping for Friday’s surprise, but unfortunately did not happen. The R11, R9, R7, R6 and R6i will be shipped right away. We are planning on contacting all people with different choices and have them swap receivers for FCC approved ones.

I'm hoping for Monday too! Will the 7i's be available with that group or are they on the next batch with the R5's?

Zb,
I have a DS-16 on order and anticipate it being available sometime in early January. I want to have a number of receivers at the same time. Should I order the receivers now or will they be still available about the same time as the DS-16? Thanks

Howard
