We have all heard it, maybe even said it; ” I don’t run updates because it breaks my device”. While this may be a common belief, it is simply not true.
Jeti devices were designed with upgradable firmware for a reason. That reason is so your device, be it a speed control, receiver, sensor (select sensors), central box, or transmitter, stays relevant to today’s applications. Jeti believes that your device should be able to adapt with your needs. Engineers take user feedback and make any modifications they deem necessary. These modifications can now be available to all users, past and future, through a simple download.
Firmware updates often solve problems. Many times, when new products come out, they are intended to run in a certain manner. This doesn’t always happen, especially when communicating with older devices. Most of the troubleshooting calls we get are easily solved with a quick flash of the newest firmware available. By running the most recent firmware, you not only have the newest modifications, but you are also ensuring that your devices are able to communicate each other.

Another valuable tool with-in the Jeti Transmitter is Device Explorer. Device Explorer allows you to configure and communicate with various EX Bus devices. When in your radio, you can access Device Explorer through Main Menu > Model > Device Explorer.
Some of the things you can accomplish through device explorer include your receiver programming, receiver failsafe set-up, and channel assignments. You can also utilize the Device Explorer tool to complete the final steps when setting up dual path, or to program a power distribution box, such as the Jeti Central Box.
Check out these great videos from James for some helpful tips on how to accomplish the above tasks.
Another batch of Jeti Transmitters are “FCC”‘ ready and just itching to head out that door! Thanks to our assembly style process, we are able to bring these transmitters up to USA compliance in no time!
See as James individually tests each transmitter for quality control!
We discussed last week how the 900mhz backup feature is a highly recommended, under utilized feature, but we also want to talk about another feature that gets overlooked. With Jeti, as with most systems, you have the ability to set up a fail safe on your receiver. Fail Safe is a feature that tells your aircraft what to do in the case of a communication loss. This is important, because a communication loss can be catastrophic and cause an aircraft to do unexpected things. When you lose control of your aircraft, people can get hurt, and all of us want to avoid that scenario. To prevent such a series of events, you can set up a fail safe to carry out a specific task, like turning off your motor, in case of a communication loss. While this seems like a natural thing to do, many pilots are so excited to get a new model finished, this step is often overlooked. It can be the difference between a minor scare and a really bad day. Don’t forget to test the failsafe before you get to the field as you want to make sure it is functioning before you need it.
Check out this video on how to set up your fail safe.
