This revolutionary, digital, 24 Channel, 2.4GHz, frequency hopping radio system is fully designed and manufactured by Jeti Model in the Czech republic. This is one of the most advanced radio systems on today's market. With their solid CNC aluminum case with a fully integrated antenna, a mini USB port, built-in speaker, headset jack, metal transmitter gimbals with Hall sensors (4096 step resolution) and 9 ball bearings for precision movement, a large 320x240 backlight display and many other features the Jeti DC/DS-16s are sure to become the new standard in transmitter performance.

One of the attractive features of the Duplex 2.4GHz line of products is it's full integration with all Duplex telemetry sensors. You can easily observe up to 40 different parameters in real-time directly on the transmitter. Or, by using the JetiBox Profi (sold separately) you can see your data in parallel mode giving you and your copilot valuable real-time information (see video).

One of the most important features of Jeti's transmitters is the gimbal and switch function assignment flexibility. With the DC/DS-16 you are free to fully customize your radio. You can swap switches or sticks (Mode 1-4) and the on-board computer will recognize your changes and assign functions anywhere you like. Other important functions are programmable Sounds/Alarms and even user-recordable sounds. This audible alarm feature was specifically designed to keep you informed while also keeping distractions to a minimum. We think this is the best way enhance both your enjoyment and your model safety. You can simply set a receiver battery capacity alarm for the desired capacity used and once that number is reached the system acoustically and visually gives you warnings.

Glad I bought the Jeti DS 16

I fly thermal duration sailplanes and wanted a transmitter that would give me voice so flight modes would be announced, ability to move switches, a large screen and a telemetry mainly for altitude, battery voltage and the strength of the transmitter / receiver connection. The Jeti DS16 sticks are as good or better than the JR 12X I was using, has a solid feel and fits comfortably in my hands. Programming the transmitter isn't difficult. I have turned to the Jeti RC Groups thread and YouTube videos for when I need some programming help. The people at Esprit Models have been most helpful as well. The DS 16 is a fabulous transmitter !
None better in 2014 at this price!

I purchased a DS-16 and later purchased the gimbal switch and some 3-position switches. When I added them to the transmitter as instructed, it developed a memory problem. I sent it in for repair to Esprit Model and they actually replaced the entire transmitter. (Esprit Model ROCKS!). While it was in for repair I could not wait for it to be returned so I purchased a second unit from Esprit (yes i own 2 now!). I own high end Futabas 9ZH and TM14, Spektrum 8, Airtronics 12 and Walkera 12 and many other radios and this one beats them all hands down! I even created my own voice prompt files. Programming options seem limitless and more in depth than other radios. The only other radio that comes close is the Futaba T18MZ at the cost of $3000.00. The only complaint I have is that it does not come with a receiver which is why i gave it a rating of 4 otherwise a 5+. I own the Jetibox, Rc switches, receivers etc...

I just received my DS16. The unit is substantial and has a nice heft to it. I spent a bit of time working with the features to get used to the programming. It is rather straight forward and easy to understand and get it to do what you want. In fact it is almost too easy!r I did my first flight with it today. The trims are kind of non standard i.e. FUTABA or Spektrum and take a bit of getting used to . The Auto Trim feature is really neat as I engaged it on my second flight. I really like the extreme programming/setup flexibility and the ease of use. I am looking forward ot adding telemetry features and the jetibox for my larger aircraft to improve overall reliability. I think serious modelers will really appreciate what this TX offers.
