Maybe you want to know the voltage of your onboard battery(s), how many RPMs the motor is turning or the temperature of your ESC. In this day and age R/C is not just one way communication anymore. Traditional radio systems transmit signals from the controller to the receiver, but Telemetry-capable systems send real-time data from your model back to your transmitter. The X-BUS Telemetry Link was developed based on communication protocol disclosed from Spektrum® for use with specific Spektrum® radios and compatible Castle Creations ESC’s. Telemetry data can be displayed on the transmitter screen, or for parameters where you only want to be notified when a defined threshold is exceeded, (battery voltage, ESC temperature, etc.) you can configure a vibration or sound alert from the radio.
First and foremost, we need to review essential compatibility parameters.
|Compatible Castle ESC||The ESC must have the ability to accept a bi-directional communication protocol that gives it the ability to transmit real-time telemetry feedback. This feature is called Link Live™ and needs to be enabled on compatible ESCs using Castle Link™. Click here to view the Castle ESC Compatibility Chart.|
|Compatible Spektrum Radio||These selected radio’s support bidirectional communication. It is also necessary to utilize a compatible Spektrum Telemetry Module. Click here to view the Spektrum® Radio Compatibility Chart.|
