    Guys,

    These telemetry readings from F210 3D. Not sure what Brian would think of this, haha... I need to tune the 'Fuel' to show a better mAh consumption estimation.

    You need a current sensor on the main supply.

    Connect the 4-pin cable from D4R-II telemetry port to UART2 port at the back of F210's FC.

    You will also need to do some changes in Cleanflight v1.2.0:
    - enable FrSky telemetry for UART2 port
    - enable Telemetry
    - enable Battery Current Monitoring

    Please do this at your own risk as changing Walkera's stock config can actually cause some problem if done incorrectly.

    Cheers.

    Ps: edited from 3-pin to 4-pin

    I have 4 pins. Is this the same? Do i have to change the wires around? Could you send a pic of how you wired yours mine still wont work. Thanks again for the help. I did the clean flight set up as well but in order to connect to clean fliggt i had to disconnect the wire.

    Sorry, I'm using 4-pin, not 3-pin, typo earlier.

    Why do you hv to disconnect the 4-pin wire to connect to Cleanflight? The UART port is at the back/rear of F210, near the Vtx antenna.

    I don't know. I have 4 pins black white red green in that order black being ground. Its connected to UART in the rear of the FC by the battery and antenna in the same order black white red green. But when its connected I can't connect to clean flight and if I unplug it I can connect instantly to cleanflight. I don't know if my wires are out of order?
