Hi

I run 3XDS610 cyclic, 1XDS650 tail and beastx fbl unit on my 550. I use a ccpro external bec powering it up with a 2s 1300mAh lipo.

Does anyone have any idea on how many flights would i get before i need to charge rx battery ?

Thanks

You should charge every flight.

Why don’t you do like most everyone else and run a BEC off the main battery. That improves the reliability and sure makes things a lot easier. It also saves weight. A Western Robotics BEC is the best.

Hmmm...

I don't really mind with that, as i have only one pack suitable for my 550. so i can charge both at the same time.

On the other hand, its not big deal to solder them (esc-bec) together and draw from the main pack.

Anyway, thanks for your contribution.

I dont run a BEC on my heli's as they are built into my ESC. But as a caution like all batteries and the love for your heli I would check after and before every flight.

While I don't have your same set up on any helo I do have an answer with out the opinionated crap that you'll get from different directions pro and con BECs and their set up. (I guess that was in itself pretty opinionated...)

Fly the helo a full flight. Recharge the battery noting how much you put in. If you put in 200mA you can easily fly three or four flights. Checking after two flights and repeated tests will give you additional data to verify your initial test.
