Yes this would be cool. I've retrofitted blue EL panels to many LCD displays but have not been brave enough to do it to my A9. Warranty issues aside, the thought of all that high voltage so near to the transmitter module leaves me cold. Now if I could just afford that Spectrum Analyzer.......

I know this has been suggested before, but is there any chance the Hitec team can implement Stick Priority Mixing?

Another one is when in the EPA menu and adjusting throws. I MUST use a stylus or else I end up adjusting channels other than the one I'm trying to adjust. I guess my fingers are too fat and end up bumping the channel above the + or -.

I got huge hands too. That's why I use my pinky nail.
Try it, it works.

I used a small lanyard and glued a stylus on it. Hooked on the metal handle. Quite handy.

It really blows my mind they didn't have the forethought to have a slide in stylus like the silly hand held games. Perhaps none of the engineers have kids.

<sarcasm> Maybe Hitec needs to put this into their advertising:
"Try our new transmitter, but if you're male and have big fingers (very rare), don't forget you will need an easily lost stylus, pen, screwdriver or long pinky nail to operate it properly because we couldn't design our screen better"

Funny, there's a tiny little mildly successful company with a popular fruit as logo, headed up by some wealth-challenged oke called Steve.

He said something underwhelming once: "If you see a stylus, they blew it" </sarcasm>

the stylus!!

Hallo,

for 1.08:

a delay for the battery warning
(peaks at pitch changes ...)

bye Joachim

Try using a capacitor meanwhile.

Stylus and Hiec in the same sentence sounds wrong btw I fat fingered my iPhone 2 times manuvering rcg, apple is great but not perfect.

hallo,

for big heli not the good way
1 or 2 sec. delay ar better.
or the delay at user setting

Interesting approach... perhaps you could share what the circuit would look like?

I fly a 550 and at times the beeping drives me up the wall when im pushing hard...

what size would you consider a "BIG HELI"?

I like the idea of a delay, however i would call it more "averaging"... If the TX could average say the last 2-3 secs of readings and act on that average, it would eliminate those annoying spike beeps...

If the user could select the average time, it would be even more interesting... Zero seconds for instantaneous reading up to say 5 seconds...

Thoughts?

Hello

battery, diode, capacitor parallel receiver SPC
But this is only a temporary solution because the voltage drop a the diode.

Hallo,

bis 6-10S

the delay should in any case be set for each model
a 250 heli requires a other value than a 600 heli

That is one of the reasons I would like the new Blue sensor station to have the ability to count milliamps. It would take the guesswork out of it.

Hi,
Current measurement (A) means that I must change the value for each battery.
I can only monitor the voltage independent from the capacity and age without always have to change the value.
the supervision of the milliamps is like the timer only one estimate.
look at the TT-innovator: there demonstrated like it also with the A9 should go

MfG Joachim

I know this has been asked in the past, but I haven't seen a mention of it lately: When will we see receiver RSSI in the telemetry? I think this is a pretty big deal, and really hope to see it soon. If it doesn't show up soon, I'm ditching the Spectra module and RX and switching to something that can deliver, although it will be a heavy, clunky solution. I'd much rather see a Hitec solution.
