Hi,

I am completing assembly of my Align T-Rex 700X Super Combo which comes with Align 850MX motor, Align rebranded Hobbywing 130A ESC with built in BEC, Microbeast PLUS FBL. I am using a Futaba R7008SB setup in a standard configuration, non SBus. My batteries are two LiPo 6S 22.2V 5000 mAh 60C connected in Series for 12S. I have already bench tested this setup successfully just to confirm everything works and it does. For convenience and safety reasons, during servo installation and FBL programming, I used a LiPo 2S 7.4V 2200 mAh battery plugged into the R7008 SB battery channel.

Prior to this build, my experience in electric helis have been limited to 500 size. This is my first 700 and I wish to set it up with the separate battery for the receiver and servos. I woul like to solicit the help of the forum members to make this possible.

Thank you!

I once asked Hobbywing if we can run a buffer pack. Hobby wing responded back, "what is a buffer pack". Is it safe to assume they didn't design their ESC to support buffer packs.

An opti power ultra guard will make it extra safe.

Optipower

Hi Scott,

Please see my request on my other post. I googled Optipower and it definitely sounds like a good idea. Thanks for the advice!

The internal BEC on that ESC is very good, no need for a separate RX pack.

If you want to run a RX pack to power the system just remove the red wire from the BEC lead from the ESC.

60% of the time, it works every time!

Thanks for the advice. That's what I ended up doing. Leave well enough alone. I just followed the diagram on page 3 of the manual. At least for now while I get myself acquainted with the different options.
