New version 3.0.0 released!

  • Sensor Calibration process:
    • All Spirit units are utilizing brand new calibration process.
    • Calibration is more thorough in a low temperature making flight and rescue more precise.
    • Movement detection during calibration is more sensitive, resulting in an additional calibration.
  • Completely new algorithms for Rescue and Stabilisation modes:
    • New version of revolutionary Sensor Fusion technology for completely all Spirit units is here!
    • Rescue and stabilisation modes were totally reworked from scratch.
    • It brings significant advancements in precision, reliability and flexibility.
    • Model can be powered up, transported and left at any attitude during or after initialization. Yet it has no impact at Rescue and Stabilisation precision.
    • Model can be lifted off from an uneven surface without affecting Rescue and Stabilisation modes.
    • It can work reliably under the most demanding maneuvers and very harsh environment at the same time.
  • GeoLink - Completely new navigation system algorithms:
    • GeoLink features can operate more precisely and reliably with any flight style.
    • GeoLink Compass precision has been enhanced by one order.
    • GeoLink Compass Heading is now indepedent from mounting position in horizontal axes.
    • GeoLink is performing many additional calculations making it less dependent on the unit.
    • GeoLink know everything about model movements which can be utilized in a new features.
    • GeoLink can be mounted at a tilted surfaces from now.
    • GeoLink digital protractor feature is more precise and faster.
  • GeoLink - Firmware update:
    • Firmware updating is more reliable with all Spirit units.
  • GeoLink - Connection stability:
    • GeoLink logging enablement during model take off is more reliable.
    • Old (original) Spirit units are handling communication seemlessly.
  • GeoLink - Vertical Correction Gain:
    • Vertical Correction Gain range has been increased to 20 - 150%.
  • GeoLink - electrostatic immunity increased:
    • During high electrostatic discharges connection was prone for freezing. From now it is established again.
  • Support for Spirit RS units:
    • Full support for brand new Spirit RS units.
    • Spirit RS introducing control board and telemetry receiver in a single rigid package!
    • Specifications:
      • Dimensions: 36.8 x 27.15 x 15.8 mm
      • Weight: 23 grams
      • Material: Aluminium alloy AL6061-T6
      • Input Vultage: 3.5V - 12V
      • Sensor: 12-Axis Sensor Fusion
      • Processor: 32bit high performance ARM
    • More information will be available at Spirit System information channels.
  • Extended JETI integration:
    • JETI integration has major improvements and new features.
    • Improved appearance of the integration menu.
    • New verification for the Integration file version mismatch.
    • New Setup Wizard that will guide you through entire Spirit setup with all necessary instructions.
    • New Vibration Analysis screen - you can view Vibrations at the plot in a real-time (except first Spirit units).
    • New BEC Tester that can test power supply of the model.
    • New Log Viewer that will allow you to view all flight events in a real-time.
    • New Diagnostic screen that will display deflections of all channels and additional details.
  • SRXL2 protocol improvements:
    • Support for all full-size SRXL2 receivers.
    • All SRXL2 based receivers can operate flawlessly now.
    • Full integration and telemetry with all Spirit units is working with any SRXL2 receiver.
    • Wiring instructions were updated. See SRXL2 Wiki page.
    • IMPORTANT: Gyro Gain Channel has been reversed. Default channel reversing can be used now. Please reverse your Gyro Gain channel!
  • JETI EX BUS protocol improvements:
    • Default channel values with inactive receiver connection were updated.
    • All channels were centered.
  • Control loop enhancements:
    • New optimizations for all units in the control algorithms allowing even faster regulation processing.
    • Algorithms require less computing power which is beneficial especially for the first Spirit units.
    • Calculations are performed in two separate processor cores.
  • Tandem Helicopter support:
    • Support for twin-rotor tandem helicopters has been improved.
    • Elevator regulation is less sensitive making reactions more equal for all axes, resulting in a more stable flight.
  • Spirit 2 flight performance:
    • Flight characteristics were improved with faster response time.
  • Special Function - P: Pirouette Consistency:
    • Adjustable range was changed to 50 - 250.
  • Spirit Settings - firmware update:
    • Servo signal is turned off before flashing to prevent unexpected movement.

No need to change any parameter after update from version 2.6. and newer.

SRXL2 users: Reverse Gyro Gain channel.
RESCUE users: Once Rescue is engaged, please verify the swashplate is level after update. If not, please proceed according this guide.
STABILISATION users: Once stabilisation is engaged, please verify the swashplate is level after update. If not, please proceed according this guide.
GEOLINK users: Update GeoLink firmware to 1.1.0. Check protractor angles in the GeoLink/Module tab - at horizontal level both should be near 0°.

Update for the Spirit units, Wifi-Link, JETI integration is available in our Download section.

Unfortunately version 3.0 is temporarily unavailable. We have to make more testing to be absolutely sure everything will work well on all helicopters.

For this reason version 2.8 is available for download again.

Thank you for understading.
