Jeti DC-16

{i} The transmitter is only availabe in Mode5-configuration (with spring in the gas-stick also) in this Online Shop.


The Jeti-EX-Telemetry is only supported from FlightControl V2.1 and software version V0.90.
Informations about the Version 0.90 you can find here: V0.90

Instruction for the DC-16

The instruction for the currently valid version can be downloaded directly from Jeti: Jeti DC-16 Instruction manual

Set transmitter + bind receiver

The easiest way is (for beginners, too) to control the MikroKopter in Mode2.
The function "Throttle" and "Yaw" is on the left control stick, "Nick" and "Roll" on the right control stick.

Set Stick Mode

You can get the Jeti DC-16 transmitter either way in mode 1/3 or 2/4. For the use of the MikroKopter the transmitter in mode 2/4 is recommended.

A subsequent change afterwards i.e. Mode1 to Mode2 is via an appropriate software possible. For this purpose the control sticks must be mechanically exchanged against each other. (See instruction: Changing the control mode)

To change the mode you proceed as follows:

Main menu
choose "System functions"

and open the menu point
"Transmitter configuration"

Switch here to
"Control mode"...

...and set the desired

Mode 5

There is a special hardware-version of this transmitter available in the MikroKopter-Shop (here). In that Mode 5 -transmitter the throttle stick (gas) has also a spring - that akes flying with vario altitude hold very comfortable.

Bind the receiver

The transmitter and the receiver need to be binded to each other.

For the use on the MikroKopter a receiver with PPM sum signal is necessary. The receiver R9 which normally comes with the transmitter cannot be used.
Here you can use i.e. the RMK2 Duplex Receiver: Shoplink
/!\ If the transmitter was purchased in the MikroKopter-Shop, the right receiver will be in the package.

To bind the receiver you proceed as follows:

  • Transmitter and receiver are switched OFF.
  • Connect the BIND PLUG to the plug EXT on the receiver.

  • Supply voltage to the receiver.
  • Now switch ON the transmitter.

    The receiver will bind automatically with the transmitter.
    This procedure will be acknowledged with an acoustical signal on the transmitter.

Update receiver

It could be possible that older RMK2 receiver provide only 8 channels. That you can change in the settings of the receiver.
If the change to 12 channels is not possible for some reason, you can update the receiver with the following software: Download
(Description of the Update: Link)

To set the receiver via the transmitter you proceed as follows:

In the main menu
choose "System functions"...

...down to "Jetibox" and
open it with "OK"...

...switch with a right-click
to "RX" ...

...down to "Receiver Type"

(To enlarge -> click on the image)

To have no mixers or other links in the new model we choose here directly the model type Truck&Boat.
The switches on the transmitter will be set in the new model memory in that way, that all switches are "OFF" when pointing away from you.
To achieve this, the function of some channels need to be reversed with Rev..

In our example, all channels have been reversed with "Rev." but not channel 1+3.

Choose in the main menu "Choose model/

Telemetry Settings

With this transmitter, like the Graupner HoTT System, you are able to get warning messages for the individual functions via voice output.
The necessary voice file need to be downloaded to the transmitter.
The voice files need to be copied in the transmitter to \Audio\en and \Voice\en.
(Different languages need to be copied correspondingly, i.e. \fr \nl \es)


Here you can download the appropriate voice file: Deutsch - Download + English - Download

The voice files are listed here:

Assign voice files

The voice files are assigned to the functions via a morse code. So that they are announced accordingly, you have to assign the newly copied voice files in the transmitter.

In the main menu choose

...and the entry

Open the first
entry with "Enter"...

...and switch on the alarm with "Enter"


(To enlarge -> click on the image)

Now each morse code sign from A to Z will be displayed with the appropriate voice file:

(To enlarge -> click on the image)

Now you need to assign to each morse code the before copied voice files new.

You proceed as follows:

Morse code A ".-" contains the voice file "_MK_A_MK.wav.
Morse code B "-..." contains the voice file "_MK_B_CALIBRATE.wav.
Morse code C "-.-." contains the voice file "_MK_C_STARTING.wav.
Morse code Z "--.." contains the voice file "_MK_Z_GPS_FIX.wav.

After selecting the file which need to be modified the available language files appear. Now you can look through all files using the double arrow.
Here are all voice files listed:

Create voice files by yourself

For that reason that the voice file is in wav-format you can create files by yourself.
This you can do i.e. with the Windows Audiorecorder and a microphone.
You can do those files also with a "Text-To-Speach" generator from the Internet (i.e.: Link).

Play VARIO-altitude regulator via loudspeaker

Like the voice output, a tone can be played via the loudspeaker automatically with switched on altitude regulator on the transmitter for climbing and falling.
