As of 5:30PM of EST the Jeti Duplex DC-16 radio is FCC and IC Canada Authorized. After spending hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars we finally can say that we are in the Jeti business.

As we promised, all orders will be processed and shipped early next week.

Does Jeti have any history with transmitters? The DC-16 is something that I am definitely interested in, but I'm not an early adopter. Those of you that are buying now, are you basing your decision on the quality of other Jeti products? If not, what gives you the warm and fuzzy about buying the first transmitter that Jeti has ever made?

Jeti has significant history in Europe with 2.4 conversions (TX modules and receivers).

I had an opportunity to spend a fair amount of time evaluating the DC-16 transmitter software as I was transitioning from the Profi 4000 to a contemporary 2.4 system. In many respects the DC-16 is a modern version of the 4000: true open programming, the ability to name every servo input, any RX port can be used for any servo function, elegantly simple and powerful programming with next to nothing pre-determined by a guy you never met, the ability to adjust mixes in flight and state of the art features like Hall effect modules replacing traditional TX pots.

I bought the Futaba 18-MZ and really tried to like it, same with the Graupner MC-32. Neither comes close to the DC-16.

If programming is not an issue or if you are comfortable going along with lots of pre-programmed mixes, etc., just about any radio will do the job. But if you enjoy the benefits of true open programming and the other features the DC-16 offers, it's a tough act to follwo.

My 2 cents,

Steve

I appreciate your 2 cents. I had a 3030 back in the day and very much agree with you about the benefits of the open programming. Once you got used to it, it just made more sense than any of the Asian radios. The problem with Multiplex is that it was a boutique radio in the states to start with. I had some problems with mine and had to send it to the only guy that serviced them in the US. He was great to work with but I always worried about him getting hit by a bus. Then Hitec took over and basically abandoned the Profi line. At least with the major brands, you have a few independent shops to back up the importers. Jeti may be the same type of situation. I hope Esprit can provide adequate support. That being said, I'm going to wait and see what the early adopters say and maybe look at one next year.

So does the DS-16 have to go through the same FCC certification? Is it going to take months to approve, or is January a realistic time frame?

The DS-16 must go through same FCC certification, but it will be much less complicated, DS is like a clone of DC. Software and Hardware are settled, as well as all protocols. All is prepared, we are expecting to be done before Christmas.

Indeed... in the past attempt the receivers were those who failed, not transmitter...

The manual says that the battery is a Li-Ion 3.6V. Only one cell? Is the output power less for the Euro market?
