I was told by Horizon Tech Support that it will be released soon. Ads in magazines have at least a 60 day lead time. I believe the sensor will need to have a standard male connector and because all available positions are filled in the Setup Menu, we will have to use the Parameter Menu for setup. Obviously, new written instructions need to be provided.

I posted on this a few weeks ago in the Flybarless Section.

Unfortunately the nitro met an untimely demise due to the AR7200BX overcompensation from the head overspeeding so hopefully by March ish I will have her back in the air.

I've been waiting for gov to be added to the 7200bx. Thus...SWEET.

My only question remains will I be able to use the same sensor for both the governor and telemetry? I have already eliminated the Align sensor on my Trex 600 and 700n. To get telemetry on both machines required the installation of two Spektrum pickups on each on the backplates. Having tried to "Y" connect the Align controller and the Spektrum sensor into the TM1000 I blew it up. So I now have two dedicated pickups on each machine. How will this work after the upgrade? I am waiting to hear if it can be done with a single pickup. But in reality I don't care because I have already bit that bullet twice and the horses have left the barn.

I'm going out on a limb here and predict that the telemetry data is going to be fed from the AR7200BX back to the TM1000 through the Bind/Data port on the BX. Just like they do the receiver voltage. That's my story and I'm staying with it.

I believe the TM1000 supplies regulated voltage to the sensor. If you removed the red (+) wire from the controller, it would probably work.

The TM1000 was not made to accept RPM information over the RX Dataport connection.
The TM1000 measures the RPM itself on the dedicated RPM input line.

To use one sensor for both (Gov and Telemetry) you simply have to connect the RPM input signal cable (from the TM1000) additionaly to the signal cable of the RPM sensor. (only one wire, no ground, no power), that should work.

Walter

Tidbits from the manual...

1. An RPM prescalar is available of 1 through 7
2. Minimum gear ratio is 6.0:1
3. Maximum gear ratio is 12.95:1
4. RPM "range" is 350 to 3000 RPM

What does that mean? Well, it would seem to indicate that the maximum RPM sensor pulse rate it can handle is 3000*12.95*7 or 271,950 pulses per minute or 4,532.5 Hz.

I put range in quotes on number 4 because by using the prescalar and gear ratio you can get about any maximum "headspeed" you want. Just using a prescalar of 2 (when the real system is 1) would get you up to an actual 6,000 RPM max.

Hmm, what does that mean for electric? Thinking...

Has anyone been able to find the firmware? Part number SPM9560 still does not "exist" on-line.

It kinda looks like they're not intending this for use with electrics. I hope they do. My main use for one of these would be on smaller electrics.
I always use an optical or magnetic sensor on my electrics anyway as I've never trusted the phase sensors. But if they don't develop the algorithm for electrics, it might not be very good.

Ok, nothing in the instructions about Telemetry RPM? Do you need a separate sensor for the TM1000 Telemetry unit?

You can use any number of RPM sensors like the Spektrum backplate version, the multigov sensor, the Align sensor and so on. The TM1000 doesn't need another sensor, it just ties into the sensor you are already using. I'm using a Multigov sensor on my models and then to tie in the TM1000, I use one of these......

http://www.experiencerc.com/store/i....EXT.0021-1.jpg

You just remove the two unused wires (red and black) and then solder the white wire into the signal wire of whatever RPM sensor you are using.

Check out this old thread and specifically the pictures by jschenck and you'll understand what I mean.
