Voltage, Ripple Voltage, Current, Power, Temperature, RPM, Throttle %, Motor Power out, and Amp hours used.

That would be a world class product for both companies.

And include the JETI Spin and Hacker ESC's too.
They all have logging.

I am really anxious to get the Basic Telemetry Pack w/Magnetic RPM Sensor - does anybody know where is my best bet to place an order so I can be one of the first ones to get it? Tower usually gets bigger qtys, but their prices are rather high, and the descriptions are all messed up on their site....

I think there are too many issues with the castle logging right now. Any ice I use that has logging enabled causes my motors to 'bang'

I agree Towers info on the telemetry items is pretty sketchy at best.
These Telem packages are going to fly out the door just like the A9 did.

Tower is showing early to late August for the Telemetry parts.
When they do get them in you will probably have a 4 hour window to get your order in.
Or get on the back-order lottery train.

ESC telemetry is one of the first things we are looking to add along with a pitot tube and variometer.

Hobby Horse would be a good source.

Along the lines of Tx replacement batts, I thought I read some companies were going to produce some larger capacity Eneloop packs for the A9 as well, any links to those?

TX Balancer & Neckstrap for sale

Figured I'd let all you Aurora 9 fans know I'm selling my TX Balancer and Hitec Neckstrap if you wanted/needed one. The combo works great I just feel more comfortable not using a neckstrap.

Hey guys,

This set up sheet was posted by a guy on RCU.

I'm dumbfounded... I wish I could take credit for it because obviously a lot of work went into it!

You'll need Excel to open it. Just click on the functions to activate a drop down menu to input the data. This thing is SICK!!!!

Hello,

I just upgrade the complete system. The only issue that i found is that the hpp software stop's recognize the SPECTRUM module.

I did a little video related to this issue:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3h4evusL3CM

In the end of the video, you can see me try to connect it, i see some action, but the computer didnt do nothing.


Can someone help?
