I got the Taranis X-Lite to use with DLGs (discuss launch gliders). It is small and light, and a lot cheaper than my DX8, which I was afraid of launching along with my DLG. However it doesn’t have a momentary push button (for launch) and the toggle switches are tiny… Continue Reading Taranis X-Lite Big Switch Upgrade
This is an altimeter that works on the with Spektrum X-bus receivers using a 1s lipo battery. It was designed to be light weight for DLGs (discuss launch gliders). X-Bus is Spektrum’s external interface for telemetry devices – electrically it is I2C. Functionally, the receiver polls all devices once at… Continue Reading 1S X-Bus Altimeter
This is a low voltage alarm for 1s lipo batteries. It was designed to be light weight for DLGs (discuss launch gliders). The schematic is shown below. The schematic is quite simple – a microcontroller, a buzzer and voltage divider to measure the voltage. The microcontroller runs at a low… Continue Reading 1S Low Voltage Monitor
