I have four different ones like that and they are all flakey in their accuracy. Use all four and you have four different sets of numbers!!
The FRsky FLVS-01 is very accurate - at least mine seems to be. So the other four are half useless rubbish really! (all those look similar design to your pic)
So I only use those as a very quick rough check to see if a battery is used/charged or not. Ignoring the exact cell voltage reported.
I didnt think to use it but I got one of those on my un used NAZA (its good to have a rich wife!) . I will take a look at the readings useing that instead.

Yeah check that.
Can still also be the charge, and/or breaking in, too.

Also check and make sure your charger is also calibrated. I know I had to calibrate one of mine that was over then under charging lipos.

Hmmm... the airbrake driven by the Ram is also a possibilty....
Seeing I have the open cavity area after the hatch now. Though a messy 'crossover' of fuselage stuff feeding into removable (hatch) stuff. So maybe not so useful....
Or the Ram drive servo MIGHT fit under the rear end of the hatch - there is room there.
A bit of pondering to do....

Anyone use this programmer before? Is there one better suited for around the same price? I need something to reverse one of my elevators. Thanks

I have that one and it works great. I'm assuming you have Hitec servos?

Right now just the HS-5085MG's. Planning on more as soon as I find a good fit for the wings. I'm also thinking of using all Hitec in my Elan project so I'm looking for a decent programmer. The only thing holding me back from flying the SU is switching the direction of one elevator. I would rather do that than adding a reverser.

The only place I've seen that one cheaper is EBay for $6 less. I just did a quick check on Tower, Servocity, Troybuilt, robotshop, Esprit etc. they are all $70.
You may search around to see if anyone still sells the older HFP20 but the HFP-25 is the better investments because is services a wider range of Hitecs newer servos.

You don't have to use digitals on everything. An analogue 65 or equal should do for the wings.

Just wanted to make sure you had the digitals because I believe they are the only ones you can program for reverse direction with the programmer.

How come you didn't go for the SBACH instead of the 29? ... Oh wait... SU4Ever if its not an SU you don't fly it
I have an SBACH clone but will switch up to the Seabart 50E once I crash it.
