The SD card on my DC-16 is a Micro SDHC card in a socket on the LH side of the RF deck and can be removed.

It's already 4GB, how big of an SD card do you really need in a TX?

For the last couple of months every other dealer in the world as well as Jeti themselves has been stating early Feb as a delivery date for the DS 16. I wouldn't raise your hopes too high to be holding one in the month of January despite Esprit claims.

It is just Esprit Models who have claimed an earlier date. How they the they think they can have them before the manufacturer does I have no idea. The early Jan date, and now the late Jan date Esprit claims was just for getting some deposits in methinks. Understandable, though not really very professional.

And as always with Jeti, expect the delivery date to be an intended date and not a fixed in stone one.

Still, I am almost tempted to put down a deposit. It seems almost, but not quite, my ideal radio and the Esprit pre order price is a good deal.

Why would you want to? The system files use approx 15 mb and then each model approximately 15kb, so there's space on the card for more than just a few models!

I came to the limits by a lot of music files. I changed to 8 GB, which is the maximum as Jeti said.

I think it would mostly be music files if I decide to go that route. I also saw the 8GB limit posted on the Jeti forums. It was attributed to Jeti, but no one could provide a source. I know at least one user on there said he was using a 16GB with no troubles.

We are working hard with Jeti to make the January date. We have daily calls with them and as of this morning they are planning for January. Our website will be updated if this changes but for now it is January

In the current version there is a limit of 4GB. Please be careful if you use larger cards. This limitation will be removed in the upcoming version 1.07.

Attached are some photos of the DS-16 that Danny had at the Orlando Heli Blowout. I much prefer this version over the tray, and you can tell a lot of thought has gone into it. For example, the switches above the gimbals are angled in such a way for a more natural sweeping motion of your finger instead of pulling it straight down. It has a great feel to it, and the programming options are mind boggling!

Note: From what I've been told, the production versions will not have the black antenna housing sticking out of the top of the case, all antennas will be internal.

The switches and gimbals can turn to face any direction your hands prefer on both DC and DS radios. I prefer the less cluttered DC16.
Any news on the new PPM out firmware? Also any reason why if you setup a 2nd rx into clone mode you cannot revert it back without a Jeti box?

When a receiver is in clone mode the link is not bidirectional. The transmitter will not receive data from the receiver and as a result doesn't even know it exists never mind program it.

The jetibox connects directly to the receiver using a cable. The transmitter jetibox emulation only uses the radio link.
