Default External Bec and voltage alarm

I'm looking at buying a Spirit fbl for my Diabolo and using it with a CC Edge esc, an external Bec, a Spectrum SPM4649t and also with my dx8 gen2.
I want to be able to set a voltage alarm for the Bec voltage (will use R2 buffer as backup, so would need an alarm).
My question is: if my Bec is external to the esc, can I still have Bec voltage telemetry? I'm not sure where the Bec voltage actually gets measured for the purpose of the telemetry alarm.
Chris

Hello Chris,

SPM4649T has external port for measuring a battery voltage.
This can be connected also to your BEC.
In your Telemetry settings of your radio go to the Rx and there you can put Alarm in a way you wish.

Okay, so at the very least,
I can measure Bec voltage. That's great. I guess it has nothing to do with the Spirit fbl.
I'm hoping also to be able to measure flight pack voltage at the same time with telemetry. Does the Spirit play any role in this? Or is it strictly based on my choice of the other components?
Thank you
Chris
