Professional idiot
That photo quite clearly shows a protective film on the anodised metal facia. Mine didn't come with one (bought last August) but I'm not surprised that one is fitted to protect it during assembly.

That would make sense. Mine did not come either with one. May be they had some that got some scratch after shipping and they will be shipped with it in the future.

The protective film is always removed before shipping... The metal itself is tough enough so it doesn't need any protective film.

To Mezon alarm - please check the status codes after your flight (see manual what is the meaning of the codes). Look (through Jetibox) for "I" or "IM" - the "IM" tells that the factory current limit has been reached and it is possible that it produces alarm. What is your setup and average / maximum current? I would try a slower ramp.

From your picture it sure looks like it. When you press down on that raised bubble area does the underlying texture come through?

FWIW, my DC-16 came with film only on the LCD
The radio came in its aluminum case.

Lets not skip this question. There are lots of us wondering this same thing.

That seems a little scary! I can just imagine someone accidentally hitting the switch mid flight.

Really? I looked at the video and saw a two step operation: first the toggle switch and then the button to turn it off.
Apart from that the range is only 3-4m, so why is it scary?

My question is if the switch fails or wires come unplugged does the main module failsafe to on or off? Or is it programmable?

It's fail ON. Obviously if wires from a battery come unplugged you are hosed, but that's why there are TWO redundant battery connections.

Unfortunately introduction of this “Super Highly Anticipated Product” was not as simple as we have hoped (Nothing ever is). Jeti had made last minute strategic decision about upgrading DS-16 software to 2.00 version with new 100Hz software and add all the bells and whistles they have been slowly introducing over last few weeks. They made us come to work on Saturday and completely redo the pdf. manual to reflect all the updates. We had to line up FCC Labels, Freight Forward Company, US Customs, Manual Printing and Custom Broker in the order to make this transition as smooth as possible.

Conclusion:
1) All radios will have NEW software
2) You will have NEW Data Analyzer, Sequencer, RC Switch……………
3) Shipment is due this Sunday at Orlando Airport
4) Will ship to customers early next week, right after we clear US customs

That, of course, begs the question of when 2.0 SW will be available for the DC-16. :-)
