I have looked the Unisens-E in the past as it look very compact, but have been put off by the need for an adaptor to connect to the Spektrum telemetry units.

Yes, not sure why that is, but the aerobtec GPS logger also needs an adaptor to work with Spektrum too.

Spektrum use an I2C bus for their telemetry sensors. Most other radio manufacturers use a basic serial link.

I made up my MPX receiver update cable like so:

When the MPX cable works with the Unisense, this should work too I guess.

Bob, interesting link that. Much cheaper than the Graupner list or shop price.

However, I have just ordered the KINGKONG PC Communications Adapter (USB/Com) from HK European warehouse at a total shipped cost of £4.19. Will report back whether or not it works once it arrives.-

Thanks to all of you who took the time to respond to this thread. The KINGKONG PC Communications Adapter duly arrived from the HK warehouse in the NL. Post took its time, but it arrived in the end.

So, here is the feed back. The USB adapter worked perfectly for my purposes and allowed me to set up the UniSens-E for my JR DMSS radio and to update the firmware to the latest version. Once I have flown it in my test model (HK Tundra) I may well want to tweak other parameters, but so far on the bench all is working as it should. So, all in all the UniSens-E seems an excellent multi-purpose telemetry unit for electric models and the KINGKONG adapter at £4.19 including postage was a "bargain".

Managed a quick flight this evening. The telemetry all worked fine - altitude, vario, rpm and battery pack data (v,A, mah.)

Pleased to hear you got it sorted OK.

The UniSens is a useful little gadget isn't it. I also have the 280 amp version, and that works OK as well - in my case it is with Jeti telemetry.

Yes, its very compact and so much cheaper and more convenient than using multiple discrete sensor units. And.... it supports multiple radio protocols too! A very handy gadget and I'm surprised you don't see more of them about. I suppose lack of English instructions and software must limit its uptake in the UK.
