HobbyWing Platinum V5 ESC has telemetry feature built-in in the Programming port. This allows telemetry data transmission to the unit.

1 Telemetry Cable

To allow the telemetry data transmission the Telem UNI cable is required. This cable is available in our Eshop.


Warning.png We do not recommend to make this cable at home since improper connection will cause permanent damage of the unit. The Red wire must be internally disconnected always!

2 Interfacing

Connect the Telemetry cable to the primary Spektrum satellite port (SAT1) in the unit - apply for Spirit 2, Spirit RS, Spirit Pro, Spirit GT, Spirit GTR.

There is no support for Spirit v1 units.


Servo connector of the Telem UNI cable should be connected to the ESC - programming port (P).


3 Spirit Settings

Power up the ESC and start the Spirit Settings as usually.

3.1 Telemetry activation

As the last step you have to set the ESC Telemetry in the Spirit Settings software.

Go to the Advanced/Telemetry settings and set the HobbyWing Platinum V5 option.


Then close the window and save the settings (CTRL+S). Finally, reconnect battery from the ESC.

From this moment, everything should work.

You can display telemetry data directly in your radio from now.

How to display the data is described in the integration guides:
