CC2500

The CC2500 module is necessary to support the Skyartec and Frsky protocols. It is possible to scavenge this module from a Skyartec transmitter or to purchase it standalone. When searching ebay or aliexpress, searching for ‘CC2500 PA’ will often return reasonable results The small CC2500 is very small - about 17×12 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.
