I have been working with a few of the Horizon team guys to clarify how to properly set up the Telemetry feature in your Spektrum transmitter and how to use the telemetry receiver ports. This series of instructions might help you get it right the first time.

* For the Receiver voltage to be read plug in the receiver battery (harness with switch or magnetic switch connected to the receiver battery) into the Battery or Bind/Data slot.
* For the Flight Pack Power voltage to be read connect the supplied extension between the battery and the speed control power leads; then install the JST connector into the port for FLT PK Volt.
* For the Temperature telemetry to be read you will need to install the Temperature harness JST connector into the port for TEMP.


In the Transmitter:
  • Access the telemetry menu
  • In each of the telemetry positions 1 9 select the EMPTY option
  • Position 10 will always be RX Volt
  • Keep the transmitter powered on
  • Turn on the Receiver power
  • In the Telemetry menu of the transmitter select the Auto Configuration function and wait for it to connect to the receiver and configure the Telemetry Menu
  • Select the values that you would like to use for the Receiver voltage limits and alarms menu

That is all you need to do to make Telemetry work
