Can someone please shed light on proper connection of the Kontronic Jive 80HV slave and master connections with V-Bar?

Thanks.

Master is your lead that goes to your RX Throttle channel, power, ground and signal. Slave is only a power out port to your electronics, red&black, NO signal. Both use a simple male to male standard servo wire. The idea is that the slave parallels your power output from the internal Jive BEC to your RX allowing consistent power supply to your system. Hope that helps

It helps, but I was wondering which port on V-Bar to connect the slave, or if I needed to provide a separate battery for it. I had seen about the use of a backup battery for the BEC for help in high servo load scenarios.

Full size VBar: Any port on the Servo side of the main unit is connected, so any port can be used.

Mini VBar: only RX-C can be used, or you need an Y cable that you can use on servo ports CH1/2/3/RD or RX-C or B
RX-A should never be used for power as it's signal only.

Since we're talking about Jive slave/master cables, is the toroidal core necessary for the master cable?
