Am I right in assumming that there is a common bus for the GY750? What i would like to do is continue using the governor on my Jive ESC and because the sensor slot will not be used on the 750, can I have the slave power cable from the jive supply power through that unused sensor port, as well as the normal supply through the thottle lead. If so should I disconnect the signal wire from the plug,

cheers Kev

You can just plug the ESC into the throttle servo port on the CGY. You do need to disable the CGY governor (see manual).

Connecting power input to the sensor port is a no-no you will burn out your CGY and probably void the warranty. Use a Y-cable on the Throttle Servo/ESC port.

Thanks for that Ben-T, but I would still like to have two seperate power feeds. If I run the esc to the RX, I can feed via the S-bus cable and run the slave to the th/E2 that should give me two power imputs to handle any high amp draw. If I remove the signal wire from the slave I shoud not have to deactivate the governor. The signal wire on the slave from ESC does not have a function as far as I know. Would this work ok??

Yes. That has been done with no issue. Power will feed to and fro via the S.Bus cord.

He is talking about trying to power it through the governor sensor port to increase the voltage to the servos.

I also have one of those BEC’s with two output wires. I plug one into the receiver and the other into the CGY using a Y connector on the ESC port.

As an alternative you could just plug the ESC into the receiver and the other power cable into the CGY throttle servo port. That way you would not need the Y connector. That was my first setup and it worked great. Now I am experimenting with the CGY governor options for brushless motors so I went to a Y cable.

right now i am using my jive with the master cable going to the TH/ port on the 750 and the slave goes to an open port on the RX. I have also used it with the master to CH3 on the RX and slave to the TH/ channel. So far no difference that i can tell. I run most all my FBL systems this way with SBUS. 1 cable goes to FBL unit 1 cable to RX.

Not in the post to which I replied.
