Default Integration, Radiomaster vs Spektrum

Just curious what the integration is like on the Radiomaster TX16s ?

I have used only Spektrum for many years, and was pretty much all Spartan FBL until just the last couple years.

So now I am almost all Spirit FBL and started thinking about crazy stuff like telemetry and integration :-o

On the one hand, I don't really 'need' to change, but I'm curious, so I am casually looking.

Integration is pretty good and telemetry is great.

Depending on the Spirit unit you will need to use a FrSky integration cable from Spirit.

Once configured you can add telemetry just like you would for anything else and for integration you download the lua scripts from Spirit and install them.

I think I made a video on that but that was a while ago so I will have to go find it…

You can look around 9 minutes in on this video for the integration part…Using a Jumper R1 receiver so the wiring is a bit more complicated than a full size receiver.

Many thanks! One quick question: Can the TX16S save somewhere, the max / min values from the telemetry?

So for example if you want to see the highest amps drawn (assuming you have that data available from a sensor). Or lowest RX voltage... stuff like that. So that after you land, you can see those min / max values from the last flight.

You will need a lua to do that I believe and there may just be some around that can accomplish this. I have not played with this yet but maybe someone on the OpenTx forum can help with that
