- No special transmitter is needed.
- 34 variables for logging, yet this number is unlimited for future updates.
- Everything is logged seemlessly to a dedicated Memory chip.
- All variables can be logged at 1 - 50 Hz rate, yet technically even 1000 Hz is not a problem.
- Automatic PowerUp counter with one User counter.
- Even 8000 logs can fit in the memory!
- All ESC telemetry and GeoLink module variables can be logged too.
- Each log can be debugged and examined carefully.
- Memory Usage can be checked at any moment.
- When memory is full, logs are automatically erased. Logging then continue without interruption.
- Logging is started automatically once a rotor will start spinning.
- Support for Saving and Loading the Log Files.
- Demo mode allow to View saved Log Files.
- Support for new receiver type - FrSky F.Port:
- Telemetry, integration and channels are transmitted through a single cable.
- Almost all older FrSky receivers can be updated for this protocol and utilize it.
- Integration speed is noticeably enhanced when compared to S.PORT.
- No special cable is needed.
- Support is available for Spirit GT only now.
- Upcoming update will allow support for all Spirit units too (with FrSky integration cable).
- For more details please visit FrSky F.Port Wiki page.
- JETI receivers with Spirit GT:
- A stright cable is enough now.
- JETI integration cable is not required here.
- Futaba S.BUS2 and FrSky receivers with Spirit GT:
- A stright cable to RUD port is enough now.
- FrSky integration cable is not required anymore.
- Brand new Rescue mode for Spirit GT:
- Because Spirit GT has integrated Pressure sensor it was possible to reach next level and implement enhanced Rescue mode.
- Rescue (Automatic) can save your model whenever it will drop under configured altitude level.
- Set Stabi/Function to Rescue (Automatic) and once model is in the air, engage the feature by assigned switch.
- Spirit will engage Rescue for you if model is too low. Rescue and model will ascend until it will pass defined altitude threshold.
- Rescue is great addition for beginners and for radios without a momentary switch.
- Rescue - Smoothing Factor parameter update:
- Transition is smoother and will finish always with swashplate in the center.
- Value 1 is now configured as factory default.
- JETI telemetry - New Altitude and Speed parameters:
- Altitude and Speed telemetry variables are available from now.
- Variables are calculated from GeoLink module or Spirit GT - depending on what is available.
- Spirit Settings - Backup tab:
- When loading older settings file Antigravity and Rescue Smoothing Factor is not loaded.
- This will prevent from unwanted values.
- FrSky S.PORT telemetry update:
- Telemetry data are sent in a faster rate and they are sent all together.
- New Altitude telemetry variable is sent with Spirit GT.
- No telemetry loss is present even when integration menu is active.
- Spirit GT does not require FrSky integration cable at all.
- FrSky SBUS protocol support enhancement:
- Support for updated protocol in FrSky ACCESS receivers in 16-channel layout.
- Spirit Settings - Update tab:
- Software will detect if Spirit Server is Offline or if there is some problem.
- Software will detect if user has working Internet connection and will display notification during a problem.
- Spirit Settings - Connection tab:
