Guys the small FDD (or FLD-01 or LCD-FDD_Lite) unit seems at closer look to be purely intended for use as a toolbox field programmer. It does not (at this stage) save the values you set on it for the voltage dividers, meaning that each time you use it you need to set Ain1 and Ain2 again to read the real battery voltages in the model.
It does save the alarm values to the DJT or DFT modules though, just like the PC software does (it's intended function).

So yes, you can use it to display the voltage telemetry, but you will need to set it the divider ratio at every power up. Hope that makes sense.

I think the intention is that if you want proper full time telemetry display, you buy the DHT-U unit.
If I hear of find anything different to what I've just said I will update the post.

Edit 27/07/11: It seems that there will be another device coming soon to plug into the DFT and DJT modules that will give all the Hub info.
