I should have been more specific. I meant any further updates since 4.0’ that address the lacking function of telemtry with the 18sz and HW that we are currently awaiting direction from the factory on that was mentioned.

4.0 and 4.1 add telemetry for HW but we need to wait for HW to update their ESCs.

You need an extra module from Futaba which called SBM-2 to make the Futaba latest ESC (OEM BY HobbyWing, same as HW Platinum V4 ESC)telemetry work, and this module is not released yet.

Will this update work with the T12K? I tried to set up my new Scorpion 12-130a and the tx freezes up. Then I have to unplug the battery to get it to shut down. I was trying to do it using the manual on the scorpion website. Plug the esc data port to the back of the tx sbus port. I was worried I fried my TX.

There us no new update to the 12K that I am aware of.

i have an 18sz and tribunus , the telemetry works apart from the mah counter , the lowest value i can input is 10ah which is useless , is there a way to get the counter to read in mah? everything else , although it works , doesn't really mean much to me

Interesting. I haven't messed with mine yet. I am running another item on my rig that translates the previous output to what Futaba needs. I know it can read mah.

Curious as to which “plug in” you are referring too. I am anxious for the HW update to allow telemetry, but would like a plug in if available.
