That looks pretty cool. I use telemetry on my DX8 but that is a much simpler set up that is a whole lot cheaper.

I have used the 5S version of this a couple years ago and it did work. I set up my TX with a throttle activated time and checked voltage and charge amounts and dont use these devices any more.

Yes, pickup in Knoxville. I'm towing my trailer down behind it, then my wife and the kids will likely come on down in her SUV later in the week. I can't wait.....Nall is so much fun.

I agree. I love watching the vids but then I'm like ugh I need to go out and practice some more.
I'll share a video from earlier my wife shot. And apologies to Mr. Smith I borrowed a song I heard in one of your videos. Lol. It's just a great flying song.

I could fly the mCPx inside but I was always nervous became if I were to hit something there was gonna be damage. Not with this little guy.

And it's only $150 for the BNF and that comes with two 150mah batts. I bought three more and I'm good.
Is it the same 1S Connector on the end of the batts, like the mCPX Batts have?

No. Different connector from the mCPx. Standard 1S connector.

Looking into getting the 48" EPP extra for my first 3D plane... Any thoughts? I can fly really good on the sim (hovers, KE, harriers, minor rolling harriers. And yes, I know the sim is alot easier than real life) I can do most basic moves. I really want to learn 3D and I think this is a good first choice.

This is really nice telemetry if you don't have it built into your tx. A guy at my field uses it. You just have to buy one screen/receiver and then put one transmitter in every plane that you want. Then just plug the balance lead of your battery into the transmitter. It's not too expensive.

I have had one of these in the past. Works pretty good. It's small but once it's on your transmitter, it seems big and bulky. I no long use it for 2 reason: I was constantly looking down at the screen. And 2nd, I know it has an alarm once it gets past a curtain voltage but you would have to be at low to mid throttle to get a good read out on the battery voltage. Because at full throttle the lipo push more volts and drops past the voltage alarm. So when the lipo was getting low but not to low to stop flying, the alarm would go off at full throttle. My advice would be, make 100% sure your batteries are fully charged, set your timer, and don't fly past the timer. You will have no issues with running your battery dead

Yeah, but that's the way all telemetry is. Lipo's voltage sags and causes the alarm to go off at a higher throttle setting.
