Forward Programming. One of the two big features of these two receivers.

when did this start? I emailed HW about this exact things a few months ago. They said they didn't have anything to connect telemetry to Spetrum xbus.

+1. Isn't mAh one of the most popular pieces of data people want from ESC telemetry? Basically it is the fuel gauge.

As long the SMART ESC deliver no telemetry over X-BUS is the SMART telemetry useless at TM1000, AR6600T*-AR9xxxT*, AR20310T*. Your One Wire telemetry deliver in PWM mode no "full ESC & battery telemetry".

*As long as they don't get an update for SRXL2 over the throttle port.

JLog as example or Spektrum Telemetry reverse engineered, make DIY sensors !

There is no space under the ESC address for capacity, so you have to use the FP capacity.

As already mentioned, under the ESC address there is no entry for the capacity available. In this case the FP capacity sensor address would have to be used additionally. With X-Bus you just have to program a multi sensor, with SRXL it is just an additional address you have to address. Really no rocket science.

SRXL, X-Bus, FP, PWM - it may not be rocket science, but it's written in Greek as far as I'm concerned.
I'm sure over time it'll make sense but I'm fine taking it slow learning the basics.

JLog32 is the solution and has been for several years.

Yes, I found out about that when I was digging into. I looked into it a little bit. The website was more than a little obtuse. Looked like a lot of work.

Fact is Hobbywing ESC's were not compatible with xbus directly when I asked them. Seemed like people here are saying that they are or will be or the usual nonspecific comment with no example or links.

Hobbywing ESCs need a JLog, which uses X-Bus.

Spektrum ESCs use SRXL2 for control and telemetry instead of X-Bus plus a standard servo port.

People are confusing the two, I think.

So what’s SRXL2?

Hobbywing got into a conversation (I think) because a few posts back, I suggested that the new line of ESCs needs a 12S model so we can use the new RX/ESC's in 700-size helicopters. Then someone said that Horizon was buying HW. To which I replied, they will still have to redesign the ESC's to support SRXL2. HW has never directly supported Spektrum telemetry.
