Hi all,

After converting from Align 3G FBL system to the Futaba CGY-750, my Current Consumption from the battery was doubled from 250-300ma per flight (6 min) to 500ma. this is on mild 3D flight.

Is it normal or should I check for bad servo ?

Thanks for your help

Shahar

wow that sounds like a big difference. I will have to hook mine up to the multimeter tonight to see what kind of current draw it had compared to my others. The only thing i can say is that is has a screen on it, and if for some reason you dont have it autodimming or what not, it might be draining more...but even then its OLED which is very efficient.

Much the same as my Beastx equipped 700's I use Flightpower 3600 with a Flightpower reg

Its the servos working hard, they all increase your power consumption hence a few of them have warnings to that effect, my vbar runs 400-500ma per flight, so did the Sk720
