How do I wire the TelMe into a vBar mini for use with VControl tx?

Quoted from the manual...
The TelMe module is connected with the blue 5 pole cable to one of the sensor ports of the ESC. The 3 pole cable (orange, red, brown) is connected to the receiver / VBC. Further connections are not necessary.
Not very helpful.

Also, nothing found yet on the Mikado website.

I apologize, I thought the link was working. It seems pretty straight forward with the 5 strand plug and the other lead that plugs in the rx.

The link works, but the manual you directed me to is vague, to say the least.

Now working
I'll leave some notes here because there is such little information available online.

Kontronik TelMe Mikado version comes with a spectrum satellite connector that plugs into the Sat Rx1 port on the Vbar mini.

I am using the Mikado battery ID system. The TelMe joins the ID sensor to create a daisy chain... TelMe plugs into battery ID sensor, battery ID sensor plugs into Sat Rx1 on Vbar. Note, the in/out arrows on the battery ID sensor look backwards from the flow of data, in other words, the data in arrow appears to point out. Just don't get discouraged if things don't work. You may need to swap the wires on the battery ID.

IMPORTANT:

Kontronik Jive Pro hv MUST be updated to the latest 1.10 version firmware. This in and of itself is another topic, and not as easy as I had hoped. The key point here is to be aware that the update can take an hour or so to process once initiated.

VControl must have the Kontronik esc TelMe app installed. Then ensure it is activated in the radio.

On the Vcontrol tx screen a "K" should appear. I don't know yet if the "K" will appear if using a user defined screen. I disabled my user defined screen function as a means to trouble shoot. I will now have to reactivate and create a nice user defined screen.

The gear ratio and motor pole count must be entered into the radio to see accurate rpm readings on the screen. Initially, I believe TelMe reports actual motor rpm, not head speed.

Note, I am using external governor on the Vcontrol because I like the Kontronik governor so much.

So far I have performed initial test hovers, but no full flights.

One note, you have to use the external governor with a KONTRONIK ESC unless it is a helijive. KONTRONIK does not support any governor control other than internal (except the Helijive which is not made any more)
