The DX3S already has the telemetry option, shouldnt it say speed on your radio?

yhonestly it breaks off and gets way dirty so it won't read. You can change it to speed by changing it under the settings. Mine worked well on my rs4 III. On my jammin it kept breaking and stopped working. I eventually gave up. My telemetry reciever is gonna go on an electric to monitor esc temps.
