    Tqi module and sensors, what all do I need?

    I'm looking to buy all the sensors and what not for my new ERBE and don't know what all I need. Could someone tell me what parts I need? Thank you so much

    Missing the RPM stuff. And possibly multiple temperature sensors depending on your goals.

    I want to be able to read temp, speed, rpms. What rpm stuff do I need?

    Just to give this thread some closure here is what I went with on a late model Slash with ID battery. The older models without ID connectors do not need the TRA3070. Speed from RPM calculation is sufficient for me.

    Traxxas 6511 TQI module

    Traxxas 6520 RPM Telemetry Sensor Long 3x4-mm BCS XO-1

    Traxxas 6538 Telemetry Trigger Magnet Holder Spur Gear Magnet 1 7 XO-1 X0-1

    Traxxas 6535 Electric Motor Temperature Sensor Mount

    Traxxas 6521 Temperature Voltage Telemetry Sensor Long

    Traxxas TRA3070 Male Battery Connector (2) 1/10 Rustler Bandit Stampede Slash 4X4

    Traxxas 6541 Power Tap Telemetry Connector 1/17 XO-1 / X0-1


    Two videos that address this installation:

    Just dove back into the r/c world and got a Summit with the TQi module. Would I be correct in assuming that you NEED a sensor for whatever desired readings/information you want to see? Probably several??

    Yep, without sensors all you get is Tx and Rx battery graphs. Basic sensors can be found pretty reasonably priced on eBay. I got a set for less than $10 to the door. Then you'll need the magnet set-up for rpms and a battery tap for volts too. With a bit of finesse, I put all of the basic sensors in my Ford build (thanks for the kind words ... for a Ford )
    .... piece of cake.
