Hello Brain Team

In firmware release 3.4.000, June 2021, the "Min V to Go" function was introduced.

In firmware release 3.4.043 additional ESC telemetry items were made available to Jeti users. This is a great enhancement. "If an ESC is selected in “Telemetry Input” of panel 12 of the Wizard, are also transmitted “ESC Battery Voltage”, “ESC Battery Current”, “ESC Battery Used”, “ESC Battery Ripple”, “ESC Power Output”, “ESC LS RPM”, “ESC Temperature 1 (°C & °F)” values."

If I wish to use the min V function and am passing the ESC telem through the Brain unit, will it work automatically or do I need to make the ESC voltage an actual selected log parameter within the Brain unit?

Thanks for the ongoing development of the product.

No, once the acquisition by the flight control unit of the correct telemetry protocol of the connected ESC has been enabled in panel 12, the data are acquired and managed within the flight control unit. The fact that it can then be recorded in the logs and displayed in Real Time or not, and the fact that it is transmitted to the transmitter or not, is irrelevant. The data is inside the FCU and as with much other data is handled. The battery voltage is then handled by the "Min V to go" control independently of the logs and ground transmission of telemetry values.

On the other hand, to check it takes a moment. You just plug in a discharged battery or temporarily select a cell number higher than the real number of cells in your battery pack and check if when you turn on the model at the end of the FCU initialization the swashplate makes the elevator movements and the Throttle gets stuck three times.

PS: It always gives us great pleasure when we see that the work we do for free to offer our customers continuous improvements and new functions of our FCUs is appreciated. It motivates us to keep doing it instead of saying "but who makes us do it for free"?
