Hey guys I'm putting toghter my logo 600 with align DS610's and a DS650. I don't have a bec and im planing on flying it tommorow. Can I run a straight 2s pack to them? Has any one tired this before? Just wondering. None of my local hobby shops have a BEC tht will work on my logo 600 the one I need is not instock .

Thanks,

Gabriel

One of my buddies has run the 620 directly on 2s lipo for I'd say over 500 flights. Align does not recommend it but they will take it.
Only I'm just not as sure for the 650.

They can be run at 4v - 6v. Some pilots run them at 8v with no problems, but that is going against specs.

What if I plug my align step down on the 2s battery and then plug it into my beastx. Will that give everything 5.1 volts? I did a little research and the ds610's can run 8 volts but I did not find much on the ds650.

I think that is only designed to knock 1/2 of a volt off. The align reg does 5.6v and this is to put on the tail servo so it sees 5.1v.

I think i will put the step down on the tail and give the cyclic pure 7.4 Volt

The Align stepdown is only designed to work for one servo. You'll likely burn it out trying to run all 4 servos.

My suggestion - use a LiFe pack and skip the regulator. Makes the setup a lot simpler, less to fail. LiFe pack will run those servos in spec for voltage.
