As for the Castle ESC: They are now solid and do not spontaneously burst into flames.
I’m considering using Jetti because I have a jetti radio witch is good for the telemetry. Any thoughts?
And, the Castle Edge does have telemetry - it is called Castle Link Live
It reports back in real time everything that is logged internally by the ESC (mA consumed, amps, RPM, main voltage in, main current in, FET temperatures and a bunch of other stuff).
It uses its throttle lead to send the data back to the flight controller.
The assumption is that the flight controller knows what to do with that data coming in on the throttle lead.
Right now, the MSH Brain 2 / iKON 2 both support reading and logging the CLL data stream.
I don't know of any other FBL gyro that can read it.
And, both MSH gyros use the Jeti receiver's bi-directional serial connection for the telemetry path to send the ESC's data and the gyro's data back to the transmitter.
Because it is bi-directional, you can actually do 99% of the gyro's setup and adjustments from the transmitter and also display real-time gyro data (like vibration analysis) on the transmitter's display
The nice feature is that by reading the ESC's real-time "mA consumed", you can set an alarm in the Jeti transmitter to alert with a voice warning and tones to tell you when it has reached the 80% point of the battery (IE: 5000mAh battery would be 4000mA consumed).
It is much better that a timer.
BTW: It is "Jeti" (not "jetti" )
I use the CC Edge HV 75 on my Goblin 380 and the CC Edge HV 160 on my Trex 600E.
I am 100% Brain 2 on all of my helis.
They all use the Spektrum telemetry to get the ESC's, gyro's and the receiver's data back to my DX9 transmitter.
Believe 1/2 of what you see and none of what you hear.
