Thanks to all for your clarifying answers. So telemetry is the way to go.

As RENATOA pointed out, I wasn't plugging it correctly.
TX from USB should go to RX on receiver, and RX on USB should go to TX on receiver.

BTW, I don't know if it's the right place to put it, but in case anyone is interested:
2.4Ghz 7DB Antenna for FrSky Modules (And compatible Radios/Modules)

[S]$8.95[/S] $4.33* (buddy<br>price 52%, -$4.62)

Be careful with this antenna...it is very direction sensitive and I don't believe a great choice for normal R/C flight operations. Tried it and didn't like it! I know, not very scientific but I had very poor results with it.

Well, is not omnidirectional, so you have to point to the plane with the 180 that work.

Guys at FrSky,

Have you done anything about the fact that when a Jr Digital servo (esp. the Ds281, 285, 290, 387, 388) is attached to a telemetry receiver, it causes the servo to jitter? I know, probably Jr should do something about it but might as well ask both companies.

Was there any thought to being able to turn off the telemetry?

Will there be any 4 or 6 channel full range non telemetry receivers in the works?

thanks
Frank

Huh... it's on the shelfs, not in works !
V8R4/7/8 II receivers can now talk with a telemetry radio without transmitting back, of course ! I think the 7ch model is the closer to what you want:

Aaahhh but the V8R4 is short(er) range with a single antenna.

Looking for full range with dual antennas.

the 7 is more what I am looking for but in a 4 channel package.

I heard back from a customer that he used aluminum tape on a servo and it stopped the jitters. Strange enough aluminum foil had no effect. He picked the tape up at a local hardware store.

It is not a FrSky issue, but is an issue with the servos.

Nope, didn't reverse it but I would gather it's a pretty narrow "beam" output which drops off the edge pretty quick. Turn it 90 degrees and the signal is almost gone! Not for this guy! (Also, wasn't recommended by a popular dealer, either.) YMMV

It's useful for finding a lost model though if the Rx is still functioning and you can see the RSSI.

Great idea! I should try this and see if it really works that way (as soon as I get the telemetry part working properly). So much to do...so little time.

I can say it does, i lost my plane it a field in tall grass and i just followed the meter to help me find it. I have the FLD02 on my TX so it was easy to do.
