hey lop flyer,
i just ordered this today, and it will arrive friday.
i use Jr transmitter, not with telemetry.
1. spektrum TM 1000 DSMX full range module. This gadget fits in your plane. it hooks to your receiver. it, itself has an antenna, and it will transmit a signal somewhere (tell you soon). it comes with 2 sensors. one sensor is a temp sensor for an engine (gas,glow,or electric). the other sensor is for battery pack power level. the sensors connect into the module.
2. Spektrum STI telemetry interface. this plugs into your i-pod, i-phone, or i-pad. once your airplane module is connected as well as this, you do a bind, to connect all 3. (you need to go to ipod store and search , i forgot, either spectrum or telemetry). once you download, you will see something very cool. it looks like an instrument panel on your iphone. if you press one of the gauges, it will say out load, what it is (more on that soon).
3. Spektrum Aircraft GPS sensor. this will collect ground speed, altitude, pressure, direction.
4. Spektrum RPM sensor.
so i connect all this up, go to flying field, and attach earpiece from my iphone to my ear. you can then program for it to relay this info on a 1 minute interval or so. it will say: RPM is ....., head temperature is ........, altitude is .........., ground speed is .........., pack voltage is ........
you gotta check this out.
Hi Microdon, i feel so bad to hear that. i too lost my P51, blue nose, but it was on its maiden flight. i fly out in wide open area, over farmland. Sosorry again.
