I got a DX8 with telemetry this past weekend. I now have a bunch of cool new data to confuse myself with for hours.

What should I expect to see for a tempature range? (OS 32 , Tempature sensor is on the head near the exaust.)

My test flight got to a high of 223 Deg F (just hovering). I dont plan on relying on this for tuning. Smoke, sound , loss of power are still my main tools.

If I remember right settings for a Carb Smart (which is used to tune ) were from 90degrees C to 110 degrees C. What ever that is in F is the range you could expect to see depending how you have it tuned.

100C = 212F
-40C = -40F

Just in case anyone cared

degrees in F minus 32 multiply by 5 divide by 9 = Centigrade
