The module has beep alarms to indicate low and critical RSSI levels with D series receivers. This is enabled by default for RSSI. It can also be configured to beep alarm on A1 and A2 analog levels by using the fdd-lite configuration program.

There used to be a lot more information on it, including a third party config program that was better than the fdd-lite program, but I don't see it on their site any more. There is some additional information on the eflightwiki page http://www.eflightwiki.com/eflightwi...lemetry#Alarms

Yes, you will get RSSI beep warnings by default without any other programming or extra gear.

It also pips to remind you when you're on range-test low-power.

great but how does it work, what should I connect the rssi channel(channel 2) on the reciever to. I have a flight Control board connected via ppm(channel 1) but I have no idea how/where to conect the rssi

RSSI is handled internally within the receiver. You dont need to connect anything to hear the standard audio RSSI warnings coming from the buzzer in the DHT. What exactly are you trying to achieve?

Set up your tx and a spare rx. Put the rx & battery inside your microwave oven & close the door. Put the transmitter into low power mode, and walk away, and at some distance you should hear the rssi pips!

The odd beep now & then during a flight is fine by the way, any serious reduction in signal strength and the buzzer goes bonkers, dont worry about the occasional pip.
