Esprit - When you say soon to be discontinued, do you mean by you in the US or by Jeti elsewhere in the world.

I know you are based in the US and are interested in US consumers but gets confusing as Jeti available the world over and this is a popular forum internationally.

That would be great! If it's not possible, it should just be a matter of implementing this in the TX software. It's not very convenient to bring a laptop every time you want to go flying.

Thank you Gordon, looks like I won't be able to use this 5 channel receiver then. I do not need the satellite feature.

That is what I thought also, put ZB previous post states that 5 channel is in FCC process and is full channel/satellite receiver.

I will call Esprit again to verify just what they are selling and when. If no 5 channel, non satellite 'full range' receiver is available, then I have no choice but to cancel order.

I wish I had more experience with this product line so as to better understand JETI offerings.

There seems to be developing a certain degree of confusion over what's available where and what will work with what. This thread was started by Esprit, so I guess we non-US citizens should largely ignore what's written here. Perhaps we need two separate threads - one for the USA only and another for the rest of the World.

Gordon, true there are some differences but without you European members helping us here, we would be lost on many of the common items for this radio.

Please stay.

Please you have to understand this is radio, not FPV plotting & tracking system.
You lose downlink you lose data without turning ON data logging.
There is still possibility of retrieving data at home, but you guys already carry tons of stuff and many of you have computer on hand. On other hand how often you lose model?

Please stop confusing things, Jeti Duplex R5 (Not on the web yet) is full range receiver that can be used as Axillary (Satellite) receiver as well.

You can connect it to any receiver that has SAT port (R18/14/11/9/7) or use it as FULL RANGE 5-channel receiver.

It will look similar to this one:

This means same for any dealer who decided to discontinue any of the Jeti products. Problem is that Jeti shows products on they web site that are no longer in production or has been substituted by better products.

Well, thanks, it's nice to know that somebody cares.
I only suggested the two threads because people are getting confused between what Esprit are doing for their US market and what's applicable to the rest of us. I'm happy to stay and help where I can.

On the other hand, displaying the last known position is just a matter of retaining a 20-byte string in memory. Hence, turning the radio into an FPV tracking system is just a matter of adding a few lines of code to the firmware, so why not do it? I bet it's useful to more customers than the accelerometer.

Actually I lost an FPV quad in the woods a couple of years ago. Never found it again...
