 The small CC2500 is very small - about 17x12 mm. It has no PA and no LNA, It supports some telemetry, as I get voltage but no RSSI. A quick range test showed no problems out to over 100 meters using a FrSky D4R-II, at which point I ran out of room. The small CC2500 is very small - about 17x12 mm.

 +==== Frequency tuning ====
 +The CC2500 allows software to tune the frequency. This should be available for all the CC2500 protocols on the protocol settings page as the //Fine// and //Coarse// settings. The proper settings for this depend on the protocol and RF module in your transmitter,​ so needs to be set for each model.
 +
 +As of this writing, the //Fine// adjustment has been sufficient for the combinations we've seen. It ranges from -128 to +127, defaulting to 0. Try adjusting it by steps of 10 to 20 until the model binds. Once it's bound, keep stepping the value until the connections fails. Then set it to half-way between those two values.
