    Hi

    I have mounted two TX on my ALTA, so I can monitor the current of Futaba (telemetry). Sometimes the numbers disappears, so it just say 0.00 volts. Shortly after figures reappear back again.

    I have constant control over my drone via my Futaba, so the connection is not lost to the primary TX ...

    Anyone experiencing the same thing?

    Hi Stefan,

    yes we were experiencing the same thing. There is only one voltage feed available, so depending on which radio receiver has the better connection you'll see the telemetry from the one that is connected or the 0,00 Volts from the one that is not.
    Cheers, Ben

    Yes me too. I have posted about this as well and really don't have a resolution to the issue. I have been relying on FPV to see the telemetry. This should not be an issue with the expensive Futuba.

    I had that happen to me and what I did was to unbind both transmitters and bind them in the exact order suggested in the documentation. I think the problem you're having is that perhaps both the receivers are sending telemetry and, as only one has the actual voltage sensor connected, sometimes you get the correct voltage and sometime zero point zero.

    I admit to being a self-promoter here, but check out the instructions here: http://forum.freeflysystems.com/index.php?threads/rather-good-guideĀ®-to-installing-and-configuring-the-futaba-radio-on-the-alta-6-and-8.7821/

    They tell you how to "link" the receivers for the Futaba 14SG.
