Default Spektrum missin' the boat ?

Don't get me wrong: I love my Spektrum radio ! I've been flying my DX-8 for quite some time now and it fits my hands perfectly. Also, I was one of the early adopters back when Spektrum put the 1st edition of the DX-7 on the market. Everyone was switching to Spektrum back then.
Now, most of the guys in my club however fly either Jeti's or Graupners and their telemetry suite and programming features are capable beyond anything that Spektrum has produced so far.
It's beyond my comprehension why I have to use an extra module (TM1000) to even be able to have telemetry on top of these already annoying satellite receivers.
This would all be acceptable if at least they would provide a mAh "fuel gauge" indication / telemetry feature!
Anyone know if they are working on something innovative so my next radio can be a Spektrum again...!?

Is this one (which finally came to life recently) not working?

It looks like the AR7350 and AR9350 have the functionality of the TM1000 built in.

Sure. But it can handele only 150A for only 20"....

Specs:

Type: SPMA9590 Aircraft Telemetry High-Current Sensor
Measures: 10150A (positive or negative). Capable of 150A with direct solder
to sensor (PCBA)
Resolution: 1A
Dimensions (LxWxH): 34mm x 24mm x 15mm (1.4 in x 0.9 in x 0.6 in)
Weight: 29 g (1.02 oz)
Wire Gauge: 13 AWG
Input Connector Types: EC3
Input Voltage: 4.2V to 60V
Continuous Maximum Current: 150A (20 second duration)
Calibration: No user calibration required

Not gonna cut it for high powered Heli applications...

I was thinking more in the line of an HighVoltage AR7210BX that can pull all those data from any ESC (at least the ones that have data log capes...).
Not a fan of extra boxes...
If JLog can do it why shouldn't the receiver be able to ?

I admit I have not seen those, but you'd still need all the separate wires/modules...

I read somewhere here on HF that for higher Amps applications you can just change connectors or take it apart and solder your wires to the plate...

Yes, that's what allows the 150A. But I believe your missing my point here.

I get your point, but still, this phrase did not correspond to what I know, so I mentioned that sensor.... if it's not a viable solution for a pumped up 700, does not mean it does not exist...

I apologize, you're absolutely correct. Didn't mean to come across like that.
I was just hoping for Spektrum to rather be more innovative than reactive, just like they used to be when they stirred up the radio market by introducing 2.4GHz.

Oh, I'd love that too!

So to avoid the pain of the learning curve with Jeti (not soon, but thinking about it...)
