The Flight Log data is what you see when you buy a Flight Log product SPM9540. It shows antenna performance (which is indicative of a good/bad installation). The difference is that with telemetry module attached instead of the SPM9540, you get it in real time on the tx LCD.
If your rx doesn't have a data port, you can still get receiver voltage since that is measured by the TM1000. The rx V is shown on the Flight Log telemetry screen, so what you'll see is "blank" Flight Log data but good rx battery data.
The Data port is uni-directional and provides Flight Log data (ie, antenna performance) TO the TM1000. The data does not get saved anywhere.
Okay, so when I get my backordered DX8 which could be in 2 weeks according to Horizons Website, with my 2 planes that have AR6200's, I can monitor: Main battery pack voltage and RF level? Will the displays be on the main screen readilly visible? Can you have the alarms set to any or all of them? That is really what I am interested in. What other sensors will come with it and what else will be options?
