I Have them both (well, not any more I sold the Assan system). And I can say first hand I like Frsky better.
I noticed when flying the assan system that the servo movement is very notchy, and it suffers badly with resolution when using cheap servos. It only chooses 2 frequencies right? Like spectrum, and a friend of mine bench tested it with interference and it does not appear to be able to hop back and forth between the 2 channels like spectrum, it will jump to the second if the first gets swamped, but will not go back if the second gets swamped with noise.

I have a Futaba 9c.
I bought a FrSky Telemetry DFT 2.4Ghz Combo Pack for Futaba w/ Module & RX. I can not get a range sound alarm from TX. Anybody know why ? Do i have to turn the alarm on , or is it a faulty TX ? I went so far away ,that the receiver start blinking and still no alarm. Is there a beep from tx when turning the transmitter on ? I have no sound at all.

Thank you, EVA. I will get the RS232 cable, and learn more before giving it a try. Since I am not yet using any telemetry yet, I have time to learn. All the FRSKY equipment I have now works flawlessly. One transmitter, three eight channel receivers, three four channel and two yet to be installed eight channel telemetry receivers.

Thank you once again for your assistance,
Larry

Hello Bob,
I just checked my private messages. I don't have anything in there, except one from EVA a couple of months ago about two cell A123 receiver batteries on non HV receivers. Would you try a PM again please? I'm sending this response to your private message because maybe somethings wrong with my PM inbox.
Thanks ,
Larry

Larry,

The PM was for Eva (Chase Wu). And I STILL have not received a response. I guess I'm on the "NO RESPOND" list.

Glad you other guys get responses.

Dear Robert,

There is no radio so far with such feature, will be available for Royal EVO soon.
With any radio fitted with telemetry combo, you will have audio feedback (beeps) for he most important things you need: out of range (signla quality) and two onborad voltages.
If you want quantitative measures or logging, you need a laptop.
Are you suggesting FrSky will be releasing a hack module for the Royal EVO that integrates with EVO's programming? Or are you talking about Multiplex's M-Link that provides this functionality already?

I suppose in this case it is meant that the Evo and actually also the Cockpit SX each in m-link version are supporting together with telemetry-ready m-link receivers displaying measured data on their displays.
As mpx isnīt giving away detailed information about their used technics, it will be hard for frsky (or any other manufacturer) to provide such an interation to the transmitters.
Have in mind, that mpx devices are far away from beeing as popular as futaba or JR, so the market for those products will be (too) small to aim for. And mpx users are usually closely connected to their brand. I also like the programming and usefulness provided by their transmitters. (admit i have not played around with much others, they all have their benefits)

Programing V2 and V1 receiver (2 way and not 2 way)

Hello all.

I have a FrSkay 2 way JR combo and and 2 receivers not two way.

Do I need also to program the non telemetry receivers (not 2 way) to work with the new 2 way transmitter software?

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Manuel

Hi All.
Has anyone succeeded in transmitting gps coordinates (NMEA strings or binary protocol) from the Frsky telemetry RX to the TX? I've had a look around and found a few have tried but i haven't found any that have succeeded.
Cheers,
Nick

FRSky 2.4 Conversion

Based on what I've read in here my 8UAFS will get an FRSKY module. I can't justify $299.99 from Tower Hobbies. And Japan farms most of their work out to China just like us. So why not go with Hobby King.

Sam an JollyJoker: the MPX protocol is patented, and, as a result, very well described in the patent
So well, that I am working now to a translator device able to drive directly the EVO display with data from FrSky protocol.
