How to get telemetry out of a FrySky X8R to Tx16s?

Post by MakAttack » Tue Mar 23, 2021 6:35 pm

So pretty new and I've made my first build. I have a radio master tx16 and a FrSky X8R receiver.

I've got them binded, but on my radio my RxBatt shows up as blank. I've tried researching online but most people use Flight Controllers which I do not have right now.

Is it still possible to get telemetry without a FC?

It is. You would normally get RSSI and A2 on telemetry from an X8R receiver but to get other values you would either need a FC or separate SmartPort sensors for whatever parameter you want.

E.g. look here for some examples: https://www.t9hobbysport.com/rc-gear/fr ... rt-sensors
