Default Jeti DS-12 Spirit edition

Is the firmware the only real difference plus some included add-in modules?

Does it integrate any better with Spirit than a regular jeti?

I don't think there is any difference only that the one you get from spirit is basically ready to go for spirit. I have the regular ds-12 and it integrates just fine with spirit and I believe exactly the same as the one from spirit.

yes, that's it more or less (the firmware & options) btw: we do have one Spirit Ed. and "normal" one... (my wife preferred a blue one, Spirit Ed. is red only)

+ there is a separate menu option (1st line) for Spirit in Heli Assistent menu... launching Spirit settings integration directly.

+ there is a direct selection of "Spirit" in the create new model assistant (after selecting heli - page 3 iirc) configuring all the basic settings automatically for you. the same option existing in basic settings of course too.

+ device manager is accessible via quick button in many menus...

we've noticed no other important differences (does not mean they do not exist but we've not noticed during last 2 months more flyin' then settin' up). integration with Spirit is really great... really feels like one integrated system.

Ciao
Michael

thanks, good info!
Is Jeti keeping that firmware in line with all features/upgrades as their base firmware? Jeti still owns the programming of that? Don't want any feature delay or lack of parity over time.

... as both of our radios are registered the same way on Jeti's page and module purch. are done the exact same way (i've done for both), i would guess: YES, everything is in their hand. (and even if not i would not be in sorrow knowing the effort & speed of Tomas in bringing new features or corrections to us. worst that could happen is to 'downgrade' to stock firmware)

Are any of the customizations things that someone could modify in there radio configuration if they wanted?

(Like adding the Spirit Assistant to the main menu, or the Ikon/Brain setup in a similar way instead of going through the device explorer)

ooops... you know, i am DS-12 owner since +/- exactly 2 months. even i've really played with it a lot, i am not at all a geek on it today. i would say no, this cannot be done...

especially the integration in the create new model wizard or the basic settings dialog are not user configurable i would say.

the spirit settings start in the heli menu is not a superhuge trick... just open device manager, Spirit and you are there... it's more like 1 click instead of 4-5 or so. nothing irreplaceable... anyhow it feels more integrated like this. i know when using the Spirit Ed. or the other DS-12

... i would always buy the Spirit Ed. as a Spirit flyer.

Ciao
Michael
