Quanum 2.4Ghz Telemetry System (Volt/Amp/Temp/mAh) V3.0
The Quanum telemetry system gives real-time and accurate voltage, current, mAh and temperature display plus low voltage warnings via a robust 2.4Ghz DSSS connection. The receiver pannel is a large 132x64 LCD and attaches directly to your existing radio's antenna for convenient at-a-glance in-flight status checks.
The Quanum Telemetry system will also warn you when your battery pack is approaching 3.2v per cell with a variable audio tone. No more deadstick landings! And because it's 2.4Ghz DSSS it wont interfere with your existing system, no matter what channel you're on!
The Quanum Telemetry system transmits a narrow, lightweight signal 4 times a second and uses DSSS technology to ensure no conflicts with other systems close by. Included is an inbuilt 450mAh Li-ion power source and a convenient in-car and PC USB charge jack!

That sounds a bit too wobbly for me. I'm now thinking it might be possible to make a dummy antenna and bracket which fits to the 2 tapped holes on the back of the Tx. I tried an M3 bolt in the thread, but it didn't fit. I will ask HK about the thread type over where the Tx is shown.
If I'm using two batteries in parallel, and I connect the transmiter to one of the balance lead, the read would be for only that battery wich is discharging evenly with the other, my question is, will this device affect the discharge when 2 batteries are in parallel?
This device will draw some little curent for it´*s own operation. This means that if you parallel two batteries only by the main plug, the battery connected to the device might get more unbalanced than the other. If your battery is somewhat big (lot´*s of mAh), I don´*t think this unbalancing will be relevant. Anyway, what you could do is parallel the batteries trough the balancing port also, this way you get parallel cells and both batteries will allways have the same balance.
Hi Bartlomiej, well sometimes we need to make some changes in our equipment, in my case, i have a old hitec FM transmiter and the first thing i did was install the corona 2.4 module, in second, i install a LCD about my FPV and the thirth is about Quanum Telemetry and because initially it was FM and now have the corona 2.4 kit, has no central antenna to fixe it so I had to improvise and put it at the top of the radio such as show you in pictures, I hope I have helped.
If the two lipos are connected only by their main power plug, than you´*ll get only the reading of one LiPo´*s individual cells. The main voltage reading will be ok, but you won´*t get the individual cell reading from the other LiPo. But that´*s not a big problem if you balance your LiPos often.
HI I have the V3 Telemetry RX Unit, and the TX that came with that RX, they bind and work just fine, but will not pick up data from the temp or amp module. I've tried binding with and without the data lead on, flipping the data lead upside down, removing the temp sensor, and still no joy, help?
Anyone got intel about the Tx CONSUMPTION ?
since there is no other way to power the Tx trough the balancer plugs.. i wonder how much mAh are consumed...
it seems it is to much, since then my lipos start to get big :(
you absolutely must have the the extra sensors to see the 2nd display screen with Mah or % remaining on the pack ?
after On the Rx Quanum you must press the left upper buton once to change the screen.
Your 2.4Ghz radio works with frequenz hopping, that means it changes his exact frequenzy many times per second. FPV systems have a static frequenz, so it might be possible that they cross their frequencys and thats bad for your video quality. The telemetry system works with frequenz hopping too. So even if they cross their frequencys, you not going to notice that for that short time.
this is easy :)
i am one of the rare guys with FPV *5.8 and using 2.4 for maincontrols quanum * 2.4. works perfectly.
we flown with 6 guys on the field yesterday using 1.2, 2.4, 5.8 and even 600ish frequenzies.. no one had an problem, blackout or something else.. everything fine!
I assure you. if you have A 9XR the last thing you need is a hunk of metal hanging off your radio. If you have a 9X or any other breed, too bad but There is a way to mount it. I would make it public on here but as the mods wish to play games and not the job they should I certainly won't be helping those who believe it's funny to allow defaming posts to stay on this forum. Seeing as how HobbyKing have blatantly refused to pay me what is due to me as bonus's and refused to remove posts after I have asked 8 times to have removed with not as much as an acknowledgement. Plus spent 6 months tracking and reporting 14 groups of scammers, one who after being kicked off on two occasions is still operating as if they are new to hobbyking and yet bless themselves with in excess of 5000 points illegally. My only option is to say "Stuff them" why the hell should I give any more. I've given enough of my life for free. No problems accepting my money though.
What in the world was that rant all about. Why are you so hung up on points? I could care less how many points you or I have. Am not here to get silly points. I am just here to help if I have an answer to something. I have no idea if this mount on e bay will work but just said to look at it and see. If you think I don't have the right to be here then show me some rule I broke. Other wise I don't care to read your rants that I have no idea what you are talking about. If you want to say you have the answer but do not want to make it public on here cause you got your feelings hurt by the mods then just grow up and get over it. I don't even know how to get points or what they do for you. So if you think you don't have enough points to make you feel man enough you can have mine. I could care less. So I hope you get what you are ranting about since I have no clue what you want from your rant. Good Luck
Wow, and what the hell was that if it wasn't a rant. You haven't a clue so just butt out. Believe me now Mike? Try it yourself some time, never fails. Let me know how you go and I'll catch up with you on Monday's site. Have fun and make a note of where this time :-) cheers.
I use this system with 6S lipo. All cells are 4.2 volt. I measured them with a lot of thing. But in quanum everycell is 4.20-4.19 but sixth cell 4.3 and all the flight time it seems 0.10 volt higher. How can I calibrate it?
Thank you for your answers.
The instruction manuals are under FILES just up the page near the price. Do you mean you are missing the antenna or the socket the antenna plugs into. If it's just the antenna buy the much better thin antenna it's a higher gain and will transmit further.
The unit is designed for one battery only up to 6S. Using two batteries would require an adapter cable consisting of one 6S plug connected to to 2 3s sockets. If you are unsure of how to do this I would advise you find someone who knows electronics and owns a multimeter and a good soldering iron. Good luck
I bought this and can't get it to work.
I plug the transmitter into my 4s 3000 balancer port while holding the bind button.
There is no red light anywhere to come on...
I turn on the receiver as instructed but it will not bind.
Also, where is the other wire off of the transmitter to go?
Well, the other cable coming from the transmitter is to hookup the optional sensor hub that adds temp and amp draw sensors. If the led light on the transmitter doesn't light u might have the polarity reversed, try flipping balance plug upside down.
The two gray universal mounts will grasp your transmitter 2.4 gig transmitter. Your parts count should be 6. The Unit, the transmitter (both with antennas installed, a power cable, cig charger, and two separate universal mounts. Hit me up if ya can't figure it out and I'll post on my youtube page. My handle is vizzuleyes.
bought this set. Transmitter worked 3 times, then it did not link again and interfered into my Spectrum system and nearly crashed my plane.
When it works, its great, when it stopps working, its dangerous and expensive if your plane crashes to bits.
Also the receiver buttons are not working properly. They jammed regulary until I opened the receiver and found out that the buttons were not cut properly out of the molding.
Sending back the transmitter to China will take months.
the range of this telemetry is very poor, in 15m donÂ´t work!

Eigentlich ein Super Gert. Leider ist meines nicht ordentlich kalibriert. Celle 3 wird immer mit einer hheren Spannung dargestellt (0,3V mehr). Dies scheint kein einzelfall zu sein da das in mehreren Foren sowie auch hier im Review zu lesen ist. Der Hersteller bietet leider keinen Support.

20/7/10 je reois juste le mien... module v.1.1... mais soft v.2.0 ... ok! Fonctionne trs bien, sauf que le 6me lment est toujours mesur avec plus0.2volt !!! (test sur 4 packs diffrents) et aucun moyen de le corriger. Autre reproche: comme d'habitude, aucune notice! HK ne respecte jamais ses clients... son SEUL mrite: le petit prix... sans aucun service. C'est un choix qu'il faut faire et admettre avant d'acheter...

I was able to make one flight with the Quanum Telemetry System, well almost! Using a Futaba 6EX 2.4 ghz transmitter and a ORANGE FASST Receiver, the Telemetry seemed to function quite well. After about 6 minutes of flight with a PT-19 63" wingspan, a Monster 46 motor, 50 amp ESC, and a 14.8v 2650mah BlueLipo battery, something went horribly wrong! I was able to do loops and rolls without issue, then the plane just spiraled into a cotton field. The Quanum transmitter survived the crash, the plane did not! The Orange Receiver seems to have an issue with the Quanum transmitter, I have not yet tested it with a Futaba Receiver. Other than that the Quanum seems a very nice system but maybe with a different Frequency Radio system.
