I had to bribe guy at Jeti, I promised vacation at South Beach in Miami.
After that he swore on his mother’s grave, next week October 2nd.

We finished all revisions already 2 weeks ago.

Jeti Duplex 2.4GHz Telemetry Overview!!!!

We just made nice video about Jeti Telemetry, you will see nothing is complicated.
This system works like a Swiss watch.

Jeti Duplex 2.4GHz Telemetry Overview!!!!

One of the attractive features of the Duplex 2.4GHz line of products is it's full integration with all Duplex telemetry sensors. You can easily observe up to 40 different parameters in real-time directly on the transmitter. Or, by using the JetiBox Profi you can see your data in parallel mode giving you and your copilot valuable real-time information (see video).

At this point it's 5% work and 95% waiting. You cannot progress (schedule another test) unless you finish current one. Every lab has 7-14 days waiting list. It’s just all so frustrating.

Hi,

Are there any differences in the RF power output between the US version and the European version of this radio?

Thanks and looking forward to it being on the market!

How many more tests are left? This info would help us all guesstimate the release date

Waiting patiently,
Steve

Another potential buyer here... thinking of dumping my DX8 and Kontronik / YGE ESCs on my helis and going Jeti for the TX and ESCs. I'm running a tray with my DX8 so I'm strongly leaning towards the DC16 (but would like it to have shorter sticks!)

The Mezon ESC's say they're compatible with an external governor; do the Mezons have a built-in phase sensor that is compatible with say Vbar or is a separate phase sensor required? If using an external governor, are there separate spool up and response parameters like the YGE so you can have a smooth slow spool up and then once spooled up it has rapid response to the throttle changes from the external governor?

Also, can the Jeti TX serve as a Jetibox to program the Mezon or do you need to buy a Jetibox to setup the Mezon?

Nice to finally read it !

After a quick read it answered many of the questions that I had, and some that other people had been asking. Some notable points:
  • You can set up receiver failsafe settings from the transmitter (albeit through an emulation of the jetibox functions, which still looks to be a bit fiddly)
  • It looks like aileron differential can be progressively suppressed as a control (eg spoilers) is deployed.
  • Mixes can be cascaded together through "master link" and "slave link". I'm not sure this will still be as powerful as the MC4000 mixing paradigm, but maybe it isn't an issue except for extreme situations.
  • If you want to use it as a game/sim controller, just plug it in with a USB cable and it will be automatically recognised as a joystick device by Windows.
Oh, spotted some minor errors on page 18 (two "FIX THE NUMBER" entries)

Kiba - The stick lengths are adjustable, but are a bit on the long side to start with. You may be able to find some shorter stick ends to fit. Sorry, Zb will have to answer your question about the Mezon ESCs. The transmitters have full Jetibox emulation built in, so if you can set it up with a Jetibox, you can set it up from the transmitter.

Zb - Thanks for the translation - many more will be grateful!

Very good eye!

I think "FIX THE NUMBER" is the name of the "MODEL" and probably appropriate in both cases.

Many things I like but especially, the "Auto-Trim".

Found like 7-8 small mistakes, already on it.

Congratulations on the manual. Typos notwithstanding, it seems pretty clear to me and the more I read, the more I like this Tx.

Jeti, please hurry up and get the DS-16 production line rolling!
