more about the Jeti Duplex
DS- 16. In this second part of the Jeti DS- 16 review, I will briefly discuss some of the more advanced programming
options to fine-tune the radio or to use
Because the DS- 16 supports up to
10 programmable timers, I created a
countdown timer that is activated by
the throttle stick. When the timer was
created, however, I discovered that
it would only count down when the
throttle was above half. An additional
programing step is required to enable
the timer to continue to count down
anytime the throttle is on, regardless of
the throttle setting.
In the menu under Advanced
Properties is a selection for Stick/
Switches Setup. In the case of the
throttle, because any proportional
function can be set as a switch, you
must program the travel percentage.
The throttle stick is P4 and I changed
the value to 95%. This enables the timer
anytime the throttle is above 5% and it
coincides with the first ratcheted step in
This functionality can be used for all
sticks and switches, allowing for a high
level of customization.
The next function I wanted to
use was the accelerometer to get a
voice notification that states the time
remaining on the timer when the
transmitter is tilted. This was one of the
features that impressed me when I first
saw the radio demonstrated.
When you set up your timer, be sure
that you select “voice” as the report type.
After you have set up your timer, access
Voice Output under the Timers/Sensors
menu. Select your timer and make sure
the first area where you can select data is
blank and not showing three dots, then
go on to select the switch.
When the Select Input Control menu
is displayed, choose the GSENS by
pressing the F2 button. This will allow
you to select which axis you want for
the timer feature. X covers right/left and
Y covers up/down. I selected X, which
will be displayed as GX. You should
now be able to hear the remaining time
on the timer when you tip the radio.
