Version 1.5.0 was released!

It brings many new features and improvements:

  • Brand new Quick Flashing Process:
    • From now you can flash new firmwares more smoothly, faster and reliable.
    • Firmware flashing can take just 7 seconds!
    • Once flashed, new firmware will boot up instantly with no need for re-power.
    • All settings are preserved as usually.
    • New Flashing Procedure will take effect after 1.5.0 update. Then next updates will be much faster.
    • Incorrect firmware flashing is not possible anymore.
    • NOTE: Transition from older firmwares is the most important to complete properly.
    • NOTE: Make sure that your computer can flash firmwares properly prior this upgrade. This is required only for this update, since old flashing method is still used (only first time).
    • NOTE: We recommend for Mac OS X users to make this transition on a Windows or Linux computer due to known driver issues. After this update, updating with Mac will be perfectly safe.
    • NOTE: If you want to downgrade to an older version, it is possible to obtain old compatible version upon request. Original old firmwares will not work.
  • New easy Recovery mode:
    • In case that firmware flashing was interrupted for whatever reason, Spirit unit will boot up in recovery mode automatically.
    • You can finish the flashing once unit will start to blink with LED quickly.
    • Enter Recovery Mode when Status LED is blinking quickly, select firmware and just press the Flash button.
  • 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 take 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.
    • Suitable for all models.
  • New parameter Stabi Correction:
    • It enables additional corrections from a Motion Sensor for further precision improvement of the Rescue and Stabilisation modes.
    • For models with a high vibration level it is recommended to leave default settings. (Disabled)
    • Enables the most advanced Rescue and Stabilisation technology.
    • Located in the Advanced/Expert Settings window.
    • Feature is turned off by default.
  • New Vibration Level measurement:
    • Vibration Level telemetry value is calculated by a new algorithm from all axes.
    • Vibration Level is more precise and is corresponding exactly with a real vibrations of the model.
  • Updated Sensor data processing:
    • Improved Sensor Data processing allows better rejection of possible interferences from connected peripherals.
  • RPM Signal Processing:
    • RPM signal measurement should be more stable and reliable.
  • Support for Spektrum SRXL2:
    • Support for Spektrum SRXL2 satellites and receivers.
    • New SRXL2 adapters for wiring will be available in our E-Shop.
    • NOTE: Spektrum SRXL2 receiver wiring guide is available at the Wiki page.
  • New function F: Output to AUX2:
    • Spirit Pro, Spirit 2 users can assign special function F: Output to AUX2 to directly control the port with a free channel.
    • Spirit RS users can assign special function F: Output to AUX to directly control the port with a free channel.
  • Function F: Output to CH0 and AUX2:
    • Output at CH0 and AUX2 is controlled from the beginning even during initialization.
    • This can allow for example smooth control of the retractable gears.
  • 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
    • Units are already available for order.
    • More information will be available at Spirit System information channels.
  • Futaba SBUS/SBUS2 enhancement:
    • Each data frame is examined to match correct time synchronization.
    • Additional protection from corrupted packets.
  • Support for three SRXL2 satellites:
    • From now Spirit 2, Spirit RS, Spirit Pro and µSpirit units can be interfaced with additional satellites.
    • You can connect them at the satellite ports with SRXL2-satellite adapter.
    • NOTE: We still recommend to use full size receiver + satellite receiver together.
  • Improved Spektrum Integration:
    • Entering and closing the Integration menu is now more intuitive.
    • Only once menu is completely closed with sticks, you will see CLOSED label.
    • During closing you will see CLOSING label.
  • Improved detection of SPM4649T receiver:
    • Receiver is now detected properly so that integration should work always well with all Spektrum radios.
  • Spektrum DSM2/X protocol:
    • Spektrum satellites are switched faster on signal loss.
    • Temporal signal loss during satellite switch is only 100ms long.
  • JETI telemetry tweak:
    • S RPM parameter has RPM extension after value.
    • This can be usefull for voice speech output.
  • HobbyWing ESC telemetry:
    • Temperature will corelate with ambient ESC temperature now.
  • Spirit Settings - Messages:
    • Spirit Settings software will let you know what is needed to do in unusual scenarios (Version Mismatch, Updating)
  • Spirit Settings - Log Viewer:
    • Fixed problem with a non standard Documents directory location.
    • Logs should always open whenever Documents directory is located.
  • Spirit Settings - In-Flight Vibration Analysis:
    • Vibration Analysis can be selected for any Special Function.
    • Previously only first 3 Special Function assignments allowed to see In-Flight option in the Analysis window.


No need to change any parameter after update from version 1.4.

WARNING: Make sure that your computer can flash firmwares properly prior this upgrade. This is required only for this update, since old flashing method is still used (only first time).
WARNING: We recommend for Mac OS X users to make this transition on a Windows or Linux computer due to known driver issues. After this update, updating with Mac will be perfectly safe.

RESCUE users: Once Rescue is engaged, please verify the model is reacting correctly.
STABILISATION users: Once Stabilisation is engaged, please verify the model is reacting correctly.

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