Header Overview

The Jeti Telemetry system allows you to receive information from your AscTec UAV and to set custom parameters.

Received telemetry includes:

  • Battery Level
  • Flight Mode
  • Height/GPS Position/Orientation
  • ...

Overview

The telemetry system consists of two components:

  • Jeti Box Profi, attached to your RC
  • Rsat2 receiver, mounted on your UAV

The Jeti Box Profi replaces the normal RC antenna. Always make sure the Jeti Box Profi is attached to your RC and the cable is inserted into the back of the RC.

You may bind multiple UAVs to the same Jeti Box Profi. They can be distinguished by a profile name. See configuration below.
Make sure only one of the bound flight systems is turned on when using the RC!

Binding procedure

Usually your RC and your UAV are delivered to you already binded. If you want to connect your RC to another jeti-equipped UAV follow these steps:

  1. Switch off the UAV and the RC
  2. Remove the connector with a single orange cable from the Rsat2 receiver
  3. Insert the red connector with the label "bind plug" into the Rsat2 receiver (see picture below)
  4. Now power on your UAV
  5. Switch on your RC
  6. On the jeti box profi press 'ESC', go to setup (via arrow keys) and select 'Set-Up', press 'Enter'
  7. Select 'Duplex' and press 'Enter'
  8. Press the down arrow once to select the 'Start' label below 'Binding'
  9. Press 'Enter', the bind process happens instantly
  10. Press 'ESC' three times to go back to the main screen
  11. The icons next to the antenna symbol in the lower right corner of the screen should now display four bars on each side to signal a successful binding
  12. Switch your UAV and RC off again
  13. Remove the bind plug and reconnect the connector with the orange cable

Jeti Box Profi Configuration

When you bind a Jeti Box Profi to a receiver for the first time, you need to setup the Jeti Box Profi to display the correct values.
Please make sure you followed the above procedure to bind the RC to your flight system before you continue reading. Make sure the flight system and the RC are turned on.

If you ordered a flight system in combination with a RC with telemetry package these steps have already been done for you in production.

Parameter Setup

  1. The display of the Jeti Box Profi will only display empty values with the titles "PARAMETER1", "PARAMETER2", and so on
