[QUOTE=theKM;29739018]...you could run small 2S and 3S planes, and connect an X10 to the motor pack which doesn't drive any servos. Drive your servos off the Nano or a second Nano/X10 bound as slave with normal power... voila! motor pack telemetry

So now there is a need for an X10 with only receiver pins and power pads, no servo pins!

As you sugest you now need 2 x Nano and a X10 or even 2 in a small 2s or 3s plane. Apart from the expence, space is a problem. And a lot of wires.

The two nonos were just what could be done, an idea. for small planes all u would be adding is an X10 board only attached to the nano and two small wires for voltage monitoring.

In that case I could imagine I am Donald Trump and then I am rich. Just an idea.

Thanks to whoever has the answer.

And I still don't have an answer that I understand. I guess I have to ask a convoluted question to get a straight answer. A simple yes or no would be helpful.

I should have said also that my A9s each have an XPS module.

The answer is no. The Nanos do not, and will not, support this. If you want to get RX voltage on the A9, you have to use an RFU, or one of the older "full size" receivers. And if it is main pack voltage you want on an EP setup, as is provided by the Hitec Optimas, you will have to add a telemetry system for that.
