Default Kolibri 140 LV

I see Helidirect has this particular ESC, but I'm curious if all the newer 140 LV models are the "I" version with integrated telemetry? I only see one version on Kontronik website, leading me to believe they don't even make the original anymore - I'll double check with Helidirect, but most certainly would want the telemetry version.


Also, for those with the Kolibri, is the main BEC lead removable? It's hard to tell from photos.

As far as I know the Kolibri range came out with telemetry support, there never were any "older" models. The master and slave wire leads are not removable.

Actually, the slave wire is removable. The master is not. And telemetry just requires running a wire from one of the ports in the front. They supply a fairly long one (and it is removable).
What you should do to see the port setup is download the manual from the Kontronik site. There is a diagram.

They must have updated something, at least cosmetically as the "Kolibri" text has changed and now says "LV-I" on them, but perhaps they've always had the integrated telemetry. I'll confirm with Helidirect tomorrow.

Also, I skimmed through the manual but it was tough to tell if that master lead was removable, so thanks for clarifying that!

Every KOLIBRI has had telemetry. They just added "-I" to the name to reflect the product's telemetry feature. The part numbers are even the same.

Bingo! They just updated the label/font etc, so all good. Looking forward to giving one a try.
