I've been uber-busy but I'm here
Few people with Bruce's level of knowledge and ability's are anything but...
I hope to get the documentation finished this week and start uploading all the details to the site next week.
And, the FrSky telemetry system looks okay -- but I think most people will find that once they try a system with voice output, the concept of having to look away from your model to find information on an LCD screen becomes unattractive
U-beaut, and I still hadn't found that body to sacrifice... tho I'm still looking
re voice output;
I believe that it's the no. 1 feedback option-of-choice for telemetry. I'd deduced this as well, based on all the expert comments I've read, mostly here... with the LCD screen the cream on top; With all parameters being recordable (time & date stamped maybe?) within the same portable unit (not requiring constant connection to a host e.g PC), well that would be the cherry on top,
I already have an on-ear stereo headphone that mounts across the back of the head and over the ears for this voice telemetry. You see this keeps the solar dome clear & free to continue generating power to charge the sex machine (below it)
Re the LCD I've been wondering if a large proportional bar-graph for remaining fuel (primary battery or liquid) for a (very) quick glance would have merit? (This of course is much easier with a graphical screen.) Especially for longer flights... this could be in addition to or instead of the numerical read-out. Resolution and contrast in the great outdoors of course feeds into this. This would be better for people like me that need reading glasses to resolve critical info on-the-fly. (did he really write that?!)
My entire RC model collection is still only a couple of coaxial helis! (umm... err
ok, 6) Wisdom from Bruce and others from this forum (and some elsewhere) is saving me a veritable bucket of money! The free exchange of good advice on RC models in general is quite heartening.
