Ditex telemetry servos can be used with any other (Futaba, Spektrum, Graupner …) radio control systems. At this time advanced telemetry features are available only using Jeti Duplex RC systems.

Monitors:
Impulse, Angle, Torque, Voltage, Temp, Velocity,
Current, Max Temp, Max Current

Just when you thought you didn't have enough information.
You can even "manually" adjust center.

perfect for the bench monkey whos anal retentive nature of endlessly tweaking everything to perfection takes up 95% of the time at the field only to spend 5 minutes hovering... only to land and make an excuse that "something doesnt feel right"

then that one dude shows up with a 7 channel running plain digital servos proceeds to 3D all over the place perfectly all day with a franken heli built up from 5 different brands held together with JB weld and the tracking being so far off you'd think he was flyng a co-ax.

Skill over Tech... 100% of the time.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Oh man RM3, sooo true, every word of your post!!

I have seen those at every funfly over the years; sit at their table ALL day
long w maybe a flight here or there, then back to tweak, adjust, etc etc.

Maybe that is what they get out of the hobby the most, and good for them.

So there is a new feature you don’t see a use for. Why get upset? Maybe someone else is better able to make use of it. Stop living in the past. Nothing is ever 100%. Glad I learned of this today.

I think this is pretty cool. I personally would'nt want to get into SO MUCH detail with my servos, but it's great to be able to, if you wanted.

I would like to have a telemetry function shown on my radio for pucker factor. if it gets to high I know when to go back to figure 8`s

my problem with that would be the sensor mounting...

When you can't get out to fly , why not do a near perfect setup?

I have little interest in seeing this information real time via telemetry. I wouldn't know how to look at it while I'm flying. I can envision a room full of support people looking at data streaming off the heli. Maybe someday- not today.

But I would love to download it post flight. Sorry- I'm something of a geek and I love data. It's part of the hobby for me.

Despite my love of data, I do fly. I promise. And my stuff isn't cobbled together. It's pretty nice if I do say so myself - but I do throw it at the ground.

I agree with you there, Bill. I'd love to have all kinds of telemetry data. Man, Imagine what you could do with it...not while flying, of course, but if you're a performance-minded type or a tinkering type, it would be a really fun tool to work with.

IMHO - not helpful until your trying to track down a glitch caused by a bad servo, then it would be priceless. Set an alarm and save a crash.

He's not getting upset, just a bit of 'tongue in cheek' fun. Come on man it was funny!

An immediate use for this data might be this... Recently I changed blades on my 700XN. I went from 185 gram Align blades to 215 gram VTX blades. The installed iKON did a wonderful job of making this change meaningless. While this was a comparatively large change, the flight controller did its magic and everything kept swimming in close formation with little change in flight performance.

What I'd like to know is how hard the servos are working with the different blades. These are radically different blades and I'd like to know what the servos and flight controller are doing to mask the change. It would be fun to know that with one set of blades the servos are doing little to nothing and with the other, the servos are working their asses off.

I can infer some of this information by carefully looking at fuel consumption and battery usage/flight but there is nothing like hard data.

I could respond to this buy I'm left with the clear impression that anything I say will result in you chanting "Bench Monkey"...

I know this because I had brothers and sisters.

Now tell me I'm wrong.

yeah I guess it can be fun to dote over all the special tools, settings, graphs, beeps and buttons... ...if your dream job is being an accountant and taking selfies at an insurance seminar is what you call "living it up"

let me guess... do you bring a printer to the field for hard copies too?

I don't think servos will work any differently if the blade weight changes. If the chord wise C of G moves forward however, the servos could be pulling and pushing more but if the chord wise C of G is further back the servos might be doing precious little!

A heavier blade will increase stability which would mean LESS work for the FBL and servos to do... maybe?! Personally I don't care. Ha.

60% of the time, it works every time!
