Good to know! Using only a Spirit RS on a nitro bird, would I be able to run RPM sensor and temp sensor?

Hi,

for Spirit RS i am using the 'classic' Mikado tail boom antenna mount (or similar). it's simple and working perfect! (signal strenght/quality)...

Jeti mrpm sensor will work of course in parallel (as it is EX too... and you have 2 ports free on Spirit RS: EXT and E1 - just never use E2. if more ports are needed there are port-extenders). but if it is for Spirit nitro governor someone else has to jump in... no experiences with that one

The Jeti RPM sensor I tried to use on a 450 (quite a while back) has a motor RPM limit, so did not work with small motors rotating very fast. It maxed out and the RPM number was low, of course. I can't really remember what that limit was--long ago for me-- I was thinking about 25000 RPM. Just something to be aware of. You could email Esprit or Jeti and get accurate info.

Yes, the Mikado antenna mount works perfectly! However, you must remove the shrink wrap from the end of the antenna for it to fit in the tubing. This is not a problem, because the tubing protects that antenna conductor.

Thank you! Looks perfect.

Do you know if this will fit an Align Trex 600? Im sure if it is slightly large, I could somehow adapt it.

+1 for the Mikado mount.

I donít have yet a 3D printer so it saves me some begging also.
