I'm planning a 90 electric using the 701/bls251, sBus receiver and bls252's on cyclic. I normally use the SGP reactor but would like to simplify the wiring, any good ideas?

Any good regulator will work fine. I use a Duralite, 5.3v with HD switch on 1 model and a perfect regulator, tail at 5v, others can be adjusted anywhere from 5 to whatever, on another.
Some will tell you to just run LiFe straight.

I'm using a dual output Fromeco sahara with one power lead going into the receiver and the other going into the 701. This setup will be really slick when the 750 becomes available.

Thanks guys. I bought the sBus to try and keep the wiring as simple as possible, the less there is to go wrong the better! There must be more straightforward solutions?

I have read that some are using Life Rx packs with the bls252, is this considered safe at this stage? The R6108SB is also rated at 6.0V, anybody using life with this Rx? Then all I'd need is a step down for the bls251.

Use the LiFeSource packs for all but the BLS251 and everything will be perfect. I run this setup (GY611) on my IonX2 and absolutely love it.

Thanks. I'm trying to simplify things, but keep it reliable.

Steve, what are you using to drop the voltage for the 251?
Thanks
