Default On Board Temp Monitoring/Telementry

I'm thinking about getting one of the Venom Micro Temp Monitors or Spektrum Telemetry systems. Anybody have any experience with them?

Thanks

I was quite upset when i bought my spektrum nitro telemetry system with lap counter and found out later that it can only work with a spektrum system

I was under the impression that the little receiver looking box acted independently from the tx/rx. It doesnt

In reality, you have to bind the box to your spektrum 2.4 system. I have a Futaba Fasst and it's incompatible

So in theory, it's cool. The lap counter uses a 9v battery as well as the handheld unit.

I have the nitro telemetry system + lap counter if anyone is interested, PM me

monitors:
temperature
reciever pack voltage
rpm tachometer
+ lap times


I also have the MIP on board micro temp monitor. It works well. battery life sucks though, because I always forget to turn it off

I would stay away from that stuff and invest in some new tires or some fuel.
