Nice plane! I just finished mine up a few weeks ago.

The jeti receivers output either serial udi12ch - 12 channel or serial udi16ch 16 channel outputs. Will one or both work?

We are also using a Jeti r3 rx as a soft switch for our cb200. Any idea if that might work with the xps 24?

Thanks

You need to use UDI12. The switch might work if the switch is an actual isolated switch (not a switch that just provides power or ground), but remember the receiver would require power full time. To do that and not have power go back into the X24 you would need to remove the center (+) wire between the receiver and the X24.

Might not work then since the receiver used as a switch would need to still be powered up from the x24.

It apparently works. I got an email from someone who does this with their JETI and X24. The RX3 is always powered on, which makes sense as there would be no way to control electronics without power.

I have a local guy that has three X24's in his planes and flies JETI. I will have to let him know.

it would be great if we could confirm this. I really like no having to cut into the fuse sides to install on / off switches.

Thx

I didn't take it that way so thanks a million for clearing that up for me...

I have not seen it with my own eyes, but apparently by using the 'switch' option of the RX3 you can in fact control the power on/off of the X24 remotely.

I looked into a few JETI things today. I still don't have one to play with. I tried to buy a DS-6 but they are apparently back ordered forever. I don't want to buy a $1000 transmitter that I will use for 30 minutes and never use it again. I literally have a closet full of brand new transmitters. I hate to borrow one because anything can happen during transit. I will add support for UDI16. UDI12 is already supported. "ex bus" is just the protocol used by UDI12, UDI16, and the telemetry sensors. I am looking at adding some support for virtual telemetry sensors (data supplied by the X24). It's all free stuff because the X24 has a huge amount of free resources. I am using 7% of the code space and about 10% of the CPU time currently.
