Setup for using a Jeti Tx/Rx

Normal EXBUS Connects like SBUS
Betaflight Provider Setting

Always start with a reset/new transmitter model!

NOTE: You will use the 3-Pin to 4-Pin Male to Male cable provided to connect the Jeti Rx to the FLEXF3. This is the same cable arrangement shown on page 15 of the manual for the Futaba connections. (Non-Telemetry)
These instructions supplement the printed manual. Please read the manual before proceeding.

CYPHER/Betaflight Settings

Use one of the Betaflight configuration tools to make these settings. Be sure to SAVE the page after adjustments.

Configuration Page

Receiver Mode            ->  Serial Based Receiver (Cypher Default)
Serial Receiver Provider ->  JETIEXBUS
Telemetry slider         ->  OFF        (Cypher Default - Unless configuring with telemetry
                                         based using the other supplementary instructions)
SAVE the Page

Receiver Page

Channel Order            ->  TAER1234   (Cypher Default - Same order as Spektrum)
SAVE the Page

JETI Transmitter settings:

DS-16 Mode 2 transmitter and R3 EX RSW Receiver used for validations
(Most common models expected to work the SAME)
As always, start with a freshly RESET transmitter model.
You can verify the completed settings using the tools using the BetaFlight Configurator Receiver page.
