    Hi guys,

    First time post, but I'm wondering if anyone can help me. I've just gone from 1/10th to 1/5th and got myself a Carson C5. I've upgraded the standard 40mhz to a 2.4ghz controller - an Absima CR4T Ultimate.
    With the controller I got 3 telemetry units that seem to have very little documentation on the web.
    I just can't seem to get these things wired up correctly and can't find any video tutorials or documentation in the manuals - other than a description of what they do. Anyone who has experience with telemetry units, can you help me?
    I have tried connecting them like this:

    When these are plugged in, the first sensor has a solid red light, the others flash.
    From the limited information I could find, it says I need to connect them in series, and then back to the "in" port on the receiver. But clearly that isn't right.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    -Dave

    First thing you should do is put a kill switch in, and forget the telemetry, you will need channel 3.

    Hi,

    It's already got a killswitch fitted, it's just not plugged in in the picture. I stripped everything out to just do telemetry. I have sorted this now anyway. It doesn't use CH3, it just uses the in port.
