I don't know anything about Quanum, but I'm buying the Eagle Tree OSD Pro in a few more days... My theory is that you could buy the Eagle Tree OSD (not the PRO version), and hook that up to a transmitter with the Eagle Tree Data Logger -- for about $100, you'd have everything you'd ever want.

You said 'good' telemetry, Eagletree is good.

xbee can interface with a PC and transmit anything you want, and it's pretty cheap. Just tap into your power bus and send the results home. Voila.

Spectra Pro 2.4GHz Module is compatible with Module Type Transmitters that use the same Futaba/Hitec module form factor such as:
Eclipse, Optic 6, Prism.
Futaba 5UAF, 5UAP, 7UAF,7UAFS, 7UAP,7UAPS, 7UHF,7UHFS, 7UHP,7UHPS
8UAF, 8UAFS, 8UAP, 8UAPS, 8UHF,8UHFS,8UHP, 8UHPS (8FGA, 8FGH are not supported because they are non-module radios)
9CA, 9CH, 9CAPS, 9CAFS, 9CHPS, 9CHFS
10CH, 10CA (10CAG or 10CHG are not supported because they are non module radios).
The JR compatible module is due for release very soon.

Depends upon which Esky heli.. The ones I have are the simple kind with a single block ESC/GYRO/RX and not really cost effective to change. However, if you have a top end unit similar to Trex 450 et al, please refer to
Aurora A9 - Helicopter Set Up -Finless Bob's Helifreak Tech Room - Review Tips and how-To Videos
Aurora A9 - Gyro Set-up - How to interpret numbers & modes on screen.

Hitec Aurora can not possibly be less expensive than the Eagle Tree system I'm talking about. I'm at dinner right now, but I'll run the numbers when I get home...

The Hitec web site says the least expensive Aurora 9 option is:

Stock #191244 - 2.4GHz Transmitter & 7ch Receiver Only Version Transmitter and Optima 7 7channel 2.4GHz Receiver, with Rechargeable Transmitter Batteries and AC Charger (no RX Battery) ESP $429.99

Then, you have to pay extra for the telemetry products (though I'm not sure of the price)

Available Telemetry Products:
Stock# 55830: Full Telemetry Pack
Includes Sensor Station, two RPM Sensors (O&M),four Temp. Sensors, GPS and Fuel Sensor

Stock# 55831: Basic Telemetry Pack w/Optical RPM Sensor
Includes Sensor Station, O-RPM Sensor & two Temp. Sensors

Stock# 55845: Basic Telemetry Pack w/Magnetic RPM Sensor
Includes Sensor Station, M-RPM Sensor & two Temp. Sensors

Stock# 55832: Sensor Station HTS-SS 2.4GHz
Stock# 55833: Optical RPM Sensor HTS-ORPM
Stock# 55842: Magnetic RPM Sensor HTS-MRPM
Stock# 55834: Temperature Sensor HTS-TEMP
Stock# 55835: Fuel Level Sensor HTS-FUEL
Stock# 55836: GPS Sensor HTS-GPS



On the other hand, the Eagle Tree OSD Text system will cost a total of:
OSD Pkg w 100A eLogger/Integrated Connectors (OSDSTD-PKG-CN2) $194.97

Then you'd have to get a transmitter to send the information down to the ground -- you can get a wireless video camera (2.4GHZ) on Hobby City for about $60. Hook up the video to any monitor (or record directly to a video tape recorder), and you've got a complete telemetry system for about $250 (as opposed to $430 for the Hitec system).

The Eagle Tree system will send Volts, Amps, Watts, and mAh used at that price. For a little extra, you can monitor all kinds of other things (like temperature, RPM, altitude, airspeed, ground speed, GPS coordinates, servo current, and throttle setting.

Honestly, the Eagle Tree system is the better deal -- and gives you the opportunity to expand later.

No -- I don't work for Eagle Tree, nor am I affiliated with them in any way. I just own an Eagle Tree eLogger with GPS (and soon to own an OSD PRO), and I've been happy with it for several years.

Nothing against Eagle Tree systems, have one myself.. but it is now superceded.
Please reread the OP "anyone know of a good basic telemetry system WITH an voltage alarm feature besides the one from quanum (because i cant seem to find any!) preferably 2.4Ghz "

The Hitec system does includes the voltage alarm system as a standard feature and it does not require the other add-ons, nor an Aurora TX.
Price Comparison e.g.
2 x Optima 6 Receiver and HMA-24FI Module Combo $114.99
2 x Optima 7 Receivers and HMA-24FI Module Combo $129.99
The Spectra Pro Module and Optima Transceivers are can be readily updated by user with each firmware upgrade.
Further facilities are due out shortly.

@Mechcondrid -- that's exactly the beauty of the Eagle Tree system! RPMs and GPS (etcetera) is optional. The stock unit comes with the ability to measure volts, amps, watts, and mAh consumed (it's your fuel tank).

You don't have to hook up the camera at all. I'm only suggesting you buy the camera to get the TRANSMITTER and RECEIVER to get the data from the airplane to the ground. You can always hook up the camera later (if you feel like it), but it is not required in the system I'm suggesting.



@Alan (A.T.) -- I guess I'm missing something then. If you buy the $114.99 deal, it looks like you get two Hitec Optima 6 receivers, and something called a "HMA-24FI" (I don't know what that is) -- only two "gadgets". In order to make this work, he's going to need a transmitter, receiver, telemetry transmitter, and something to measure the data (like a voltage meter, current meter, watt meter, etcetera) -- that's at least four "gadgets". How can the telemetry system work with only two "gadgets"?

for the base system : well ya thats true i guess
for the camera idea : how would i get the transmitter out of the camera to use?

and i think it incorporates those four "gadgets" as you call them into the receiver and the additional module

The $60 price I quoted you earlier includes the camera, the transmitter, and the receiver (three seperate units). In my scenario, you just don't hook up the camera -- you hook the Eagle Tree OSD Text system directly to the transmitter, and leave the camera on the ground in the back of your car.

(Normally, the Eagle Tree OSD Text system would be installed between the camera and the transmitter. If you leave the camera out of the system, the OSD should overlay the data on top of a blank screen. BUT, now that I think about it, the Eagle Tree OSD may not overlay anything if it does not receive a signal from the camera. Hmmmm...)

Well, that's why I asked. I'm really not sure. The Hitec web site isn't very clear on these matters, and doesn't list any prices...
