I have my Spektrum T1000 Telemetry mostly working on my Trex 700 Nitro with iKon2 unit. What is not working is the RPM sensor telemetry. I am using two RPM pickups on the backplate of the motor. RPMs are recorded on the iKon governor setup page with either pickup, but I get nothing on the DX9 telemetry display.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

I am using 1 sensor with a y harness. the tele won't show anything until it runs.
in the telemetry menu somewhere you can enter the gear ratio and get head speed instead of engine rpm

I'm using a dx8 and sk540 with tm1100

I turn the engine over with the starter. On the iKon pc app I get a reading of 300 rpms. I have used this method in the past with the AR7200BX and it always gave me an rpm reading. This is how I tested the AR to be sure the backplate sensor was working.

only thing left is either its not enabled in the radio or you got it in the wrong port on the tm1000

Thanks for your help. I think I will try swapping out the T-1000. It could be a bad port on the unit I'm using. I will let you know what I find.

I test ran the motor today and the rpm sensor is working. I have the telemetry ratio set for 8.2:1, but it is not converting the RPM down to the head speed on the telemetry display. I get a reading of 12785rpm, when it should read more like 1400 or so.

Any thought on that?
