ya know i hear about the 8717's and their current hungry problems and can't help but wonder if any receivers are going to give problems due to this current or is the receiver a bottleneck to the current requirement? As you can tell I know bugger all about electrics theory so i'ts an actual question.

If a 1900 is say 10 or 12 C then it can deliver say 20 amps? So how does the receiver go with 20 amps flowing through it? Does the voltage drop dangerously low in some situations?

could an electronics guru set me straight on this?

cheers

There have been interference problems using the 2 in 1 on 35mhz systems used in the UK, I believe this is why the unit has been altered but we were told it's fine with 2.4ghz systems, mine has worked faultlessly through 5 gallons on mt Trex 600N.

hi?
Because it takes 2 cell Li-ion or a Li-Poly battery only! what charge are you guys using?

The Align 2-1 and the plain "bec" regulator are rated at 6A so ANY reasonable lipo will work as long as it's charged.

I think you'd be safe using this with most servos but I'm guessing the power draw on the 8717's is a bit much for the Align regulators.
Perhaps this is what happened to the Vibes?

I have not had a problem even with my really old school (9 months!) 3A regualtor running a 9451, 2xHS635's, TJPro/HS525 and a 401/9254. I would not have any problems trusting the 6A for most typical servos but if in doubt perhaps an inline amp meter would help ensure you are not anywhere near 6A peak.
