In addition to JR and Eagletree, you should maybe consider the FrSky range of sensors. They even have 6S cell voltage sensors that can be chained for monitoring up to 12S.

We won't be supporting the chinese brand radios. The sensors are too unreliable and I don't want that associated with our product.

Thanks

Yes. Just like the Hitec's sensor display shows the Rx voltage. The signal strength (RSSI) shows up in the GPS signal strength, even though there is no real GPS - it was a convenient way to show the strength since Hitec does not offer this feature.

Thanks. So what has to be done to get this using Nano's? Expander??

Jeti Telemetry Sensor Li-Poly Battery MULi 6s EX. The MULi6s EX sensor is used with a Duplex receiver to monitor the voltage of your (up to) 6 cell Lithium battery pack.

Nano's don't have the telemetry stream... will need the DivBee RF + expander

Nano's do not output telemetry information. There is no voltage detection circuitry in the Nano because they run down to 2.1v. However, they can send telemetry - but at a limited distance because they are very low power output devices. So, you could use the Nano with the expander to send telemetry info.

The expander will be programmed just like our current 8 and 10 channel receivers.

Does that programming exist or is it something to look forward to?

It exists already - it's in our 8 and 10 channel receivers right now.

like this, but the DivBee module will have a case around it to hold the antennas and such...

Great. I just never saw the three prong plug. Now it all seems to make sense. Thanks

Jim i didnt mention it when i was at your booth at the ama, I think the DivBee separate receiver and expander board(s) are going to revolutionize our hobby!

hi, you did not model for this by any chance?
