Simple and easy monitoring
This module is extremely easy to use and cost effective. I personally find it nice to the per-cell monitoring of my battery while flying. It couldn't be any easier to connect, plugging right into the balance connector. I've only found two main downsides to the product. First, you will need to make sure there is room in your battery compartment for the sensor, or you will need a balance connector extension lead to move the sensor somewhere else. The bigger issue I have is related to the telemetry displays. I use a MZ-12, so my options for displays are limited. This shows as a general module, which means I see telemetry screens which are mostly filled with empty and invalid data. It is quite wasteful to see so many unpopulated values. I wish Graupner could better tailor the telemetry screens to each module that sell, but I understand that these screens are prebuilt in the radio and cannot be changed by the modules. It just seems a little hacky at first, especially if this is the only sensor on the bus. Overall, for the price it can't be beat. You get live monitoring and configurable voice readouts and alarms.
