This versatile Orange RPM Sensor for brushless motors is suitable for inrunner and outrunner motors and works by detecting the voltage changes in the wires to the motor, and then outputs the RPM signal.
The sensor can be used with :
• Orange short and long range telemetry systems.
• Orange telemetry receivers.
• Flybarless sytems with integtrated governor (such as V-bar) Please pay attention to proper connection of the sensor to the V-Bar unit.
• Data loggers (such as Eagle Tree) Please pay attention to proper connection of the sensor to the unit.

Good to know the RPM.. might improve your flying & flight times!Good fun to know this... might help with
improving your final approach speed tooWorks perfectly. Only issue was guessing the number of poles in the motor. I used trial and error plus an optical tacho to get the right settings.works fine on my oRX 920 / Devo 6 (DeviationTX FW).good we have the rpm sensor and the whole line of orange rx which use the sensor is out of stock since a while. kindly bring the rx back to stock asap.Great sensor for my mini Kbar or icon governorIf used as an RPM sensor for the Ikon, the yellow and gray wires need to be reversed- see Ikon governor sensor diagram. Works well.Funktioniert gut mit vstabi gouveneur!!!musste nur ein Servokabel anlten anstatt dem weissen Stecker!!!!Well, as it is said clearly in the description, this sensor works with 2 pole motors. I somehow hoped, this item would be quite identical to another product which comes the high end competitor, I bought it and soldered it to my 14 pole motor from a fms cessna corvalis. I did so, because in my TXdeexeight I can set the number of poles for the rpm telemetry. Everything goes together quite easy. Fits well to the telemtry unit. Unfortunately, it did not put out any value (even at low speed, when keeping the same rpm for guite some time.)
So basically, if it works, it does so only with inrunners - not very helpful for plane pilots. Maybe for the jets... Tomorrow I will try it with my boat (inrunner); if it works there, I will report.
