MiniHub+ - S.Port Telemetry Hub for Frsky Radios

MiniHub+ - S.Port Telemetry Hub for Frsky Radios

I predominantly fly gasoline engine powered planes so it is important to me to use a device that work with the standard Tachometer leads from most gasoline engine ignitions. In addition monitor onboard voltage and engine temperatures.

This is what the new MiniHub+ (for FrSky/Taranis/Horus) does. It works with the standard Tachometer leads from most gasoline engine ignitions. The ignition system has conditioned the signal and it is easily used for the MiniHub+'s RPM header.

The MiniHub+ has also two temperature ports (you will need the FrSky thermistors FrSky TEMS-01) and three voltage inputs (0 to 5v, currently you will need the frsky voltage step down circuit FrSky FBVS to measure up to 5S LiPo battery).

The MiniHub+2/4 (can be used for multi engines) and to use two devices daisy chained together it requires OpenTX 2.1+ due to telemetry sensor ID assignment)

Why only for openTx? If it uses the SPort, why won't it work with ersky9x?

If you can spare one, I'll test it out.
