Kontronik Jive ESC has telemetry feature built-in in the dedicated port (JMP label). 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.

2 Interfacing

Connect the Telemetry cable to the primary Spektrum satellite port in the unit. Smaller Spirit units will utilize the one native Spektrum satellite port.
