Hi, looking for more advice please!
I have now got my Multiplex Heron up and running and enjoying great thermal flights.
I am starting to think that a vario would be nice but I have no idea what to get.
The set up I have is a Spektrum DX9 (black edition) and a Lemon 10 channel rx.
What would you suggest?

I use a SM Modelbau Unisens E sensor in my Heron with my Multiplex radio, vario, altimeter, volts, amps and mah all in one small sensor, it works with Spektrum too, but I'm not familiar with the Lemon Rx and it's telemetry sensor interface.

Lemon do a receiver with a built in vario.
Alternatively, you could get a genuine Spektrum telemetry unit and vario. Be aware that some aftermarket sensors do not work with the new Spektrum receivers with integrated telemetry.

Just get a Lemon LM0052
And get a satellit for it
And then you are flying
They also have a LM0053U
It is without the Amp and battery pack plugs, a bit cheaper for gliders without motor..
I have 3 in some of my gliders and they are working great, much cheaper and have better telemetri range than Spektrum telemetri recivers

There are currently I think 4 Herons flying at our club, all on Spektrum txs; two have Lemon telemetric rxs with vario and a third is about to have (mine) when I've mended the Wot 4 tail, plumbed theYak, maidened a little Sukhoi, got an ASP to idle and transition, solved Middle Eastern peace and fused the atom.
They seem to work very well, as generally do Lemon rxs. The ones being fitted here have volts and temp built in. Beware import duty.
Hope this helps.
