Q. "+1 on the voice thing. Telemetry is great but, it is difficult looking at the Tx while in
flight. What data does the voice thing announce?
How often does it announce the data? Is it "data selectable" and if so all of the data or specific data?"

A. "Sorry no demo yet. Basically you can set it to read off all of the telemetry info in
sequence every 10 second, 30 seconds, or 1 minute; or select the specific readings
you want to hear in the same time frame. -Mike"

Q. "Mike any chance in pushing or influencing a pair of Sunglasses with OSD (on screen
display) so that the telem read out still allows line of site use? This would not be in
violation of speculated regs."

A. Absolutely, the idea has already been floated but there are a few more
things on the master list first. .It will come one day in the not so distant
future... of that I have no doubt! - Mike

17 August 2011: "Here's a recent video from when Model Airplane News
came to town and we went out and flew the new Multiplex Dog Fighter
with the SS-Blue Telemetry and HTS-Voice.- Mike"

18 December 2011: Firmware Update.
. Refer HTS-Voice on manufacturer's support forum regarding update to firmware due Feb 2012..

. HTS-Voice - Feedback on current features whilst awaiting update due Feb12:
"HTS_voice unit does spit out all the telemetry data, with a sad north American accent.
I'm using it together with a BLUE sensor station.
It will tell you the receiver or SPC voltage, (depending which one you are using), height,
speed, voltage again but this time from the separate sensor, and then current, followed
by the temperatures of the sensors (up to 4), if used.

It repeats this every 10 or 30 seconds depending on selection you made in the setup..
The firmware in the voice unit is certainly not finalised as it will not give you the receiver
or SPC voltage unless a sensor station is plugged into the receiver. It also has some
bugs with the GPS height, as on the transmitter, the height is shown correctly but the
voice unit add's some random height to it."

23 Feb 2012: Update
"Note that Hitec USA has not released the Voice system to the market
but plan to start shipping them shortly as the new V1.12 software is now complete.
. finally! Here's a couple screen shots: - Mike".
