I listen to flitetest podcast and graupner usa guy who was on rctoday a few months back was talking about multirotor, which piqued my interest, as the whole hott spiel is integration so having a fbl rx with esc and gps sensors connected as a full flight system with telemetry and failsafe/return home definitely appeals to me, and would persuade me to move over from spektrum.

I cannot find any info by googling or from graupner.de website (openhobby.com is blocked from uk, i guess to hide entrance strategy pricing) if they have multirotor functionality enabled in fbl receiver as a flight controller yet, anyone know if or when this might happen?

Our multirotor products are still under development and are still 6-8 months out. They will inherit the same way of operation through the HoTT telemetry bus allowing setup and monitoring over the radio.

Thanks, will keep an eye out as this has huge appeal. I assume you could use a voltage/current sensor on battery harness with existing non-graupner esc for fuel gauge to save buying all new graupner escs for full integration.

Yes we have several modules that will do the job measuring data and pass the telemetry on to the receiver.

Yes, feeling guilty now.

Did you manage to get your switches fixed?

Hey Erik! Let me know when you are at the foothills again. We should schedule some flying at our field...

Did that RX ever made it your way? My apology for the the time it tool. The last couple of weeks were insane busy.
