Support for NEURON series ESC telemetry input
FrSky has released Neuron series ESCs some time ago, featuring built in advanced and accurate telemetry sensors. (much better when compared to HW from my experience)
They come in 40 60 and 80A versions, so they fill the gap left by other manufacturers, as most of other 40-60A ESC don't support current sensing or mAh calculations.
Nenuron ESCs output the telemetry data via additional port using s.port protocol. I'd like to ask for the support of this input, like with other ESCs. This would allow to use those ESCs telemetry features by users of other brands RC systems, as well as enable telemetry parameter logging in Brain, and simplify wiring for FrSky f.port receivers users.
Now only FrSky users may make use of those ESCs and they are forced to use inverted s.bus+s.port hookup instead of f.port connection between Brain and Rx.
The F.Port protocol does not foresee the use as a data bus and therefore the possibility to connect other devices on the same wires. With F.Port only a master and a slave can be connected together.
What is different is the new F.Port2 protocol, which works as a real bus to which other devices can be connected.
You should therefore write to FrSky if and when they plan to release a firmware for their ESCs using their new F.Port2 protocol.
I second to that, I'd also like to make use of this feature of my Neuron ESC
