the white gain plug is just a single wire and gets no power from the rx since its just a signal wire.

no switch is needed its just one thing less to fail.....

on my power leads i have it long enough so i can plug it in with canopy on, which goes thru the canopy bottom hole.

I have heard many people reccomending the Spectrum regulator for running the tail servo and throttle servo (if we remove the power lead in the higher end gyro remote lead). Can anyone verify that the SPectrum regulator is up to this job? I have one of these, and it specifically says it is for the rudder lead and remote lead. I understand the remote lead doesn't need stepped down without the power lead, but I was wondering if the Spectrum reg is actually up to the job of stepping down 2 servos. The reg is very small with no way to get rid of heat (heatsink, etc). This is purely speculation, but maybe Spektrum lists them for the just the rudder/gain because it is not designed to run more than one loaded servo Does anybody actually know for sure it can handle stepping down 2 servos without building too much heat or failing under heavy loads?

well im running my tail servo thru one side and my throttle servo on the other port on the spectrum reg.

the gyro gain lead doesnt get any power when plugged in to the rx or the reg.....

i am also running y lead to the other 3155 servo for the carbsmart.

so im actually running 1 tail servo and 2 3155's on the ports of the spectrum reg

Great, Thanks Ink

I PM'd 2 people that were reccomending this in other threads and neither of them had actually flown with it configured this way. Seems like plenty of people are reccomending it, but very few are actually doing it

thanks for all the input. As I am running 6v for now I removed the Spektrum regulator and put the inline step down back in.

I'll wait until I have a need for 8v. Right now 6v is plenty.

IT's what I do.

hey inkspot, i have my stepdown coming out of my receiver then plugged into the 401 9254 combo both running on 5.1v is this ok or do i need to put the step down after the split going to just the servo and 401 gets 6v? can there be any issues running the 401 at 5.1v as opposed to 6v?

thats fine either way will work with no issue's. the 401 can handle the 6volts.

the way i do it is stepdown the tail servo only.

I've been having a similar problem with my 600 sport, gyro (had 3 different csm ones fitted) would appear to have reset and lost neutral position and on one occasion tail stopped working until heli rx was switched off and back on and then all would seem ok.
There was no pattern some flights would be fine and then the next time the gyro stops holding usually when i came back into an hover.
Luckily this as only resulted in 2 crashes one minor the last not so fortunate.
On the last crash the clutch also exploded and the frames broke.
Tonight i stripped down the frames as i've now got all the parts for rebuild and i found the throttle servo wire damaged/ insulation rubbed through from probable contact with the clutch bell , i can't be 100% sure because of the exploding clutch and bell but the servo wire shorting out could cause a voltage drop and gyro reset in flight.

CHECK YOUR THROTTLE SERVO WIRES FOR CONTACT WITH CLUTCH BELL!

btw i run a 4100mah nimh rx battery so theres no step downs or regulators.

Update: It was not the Spektrum regulator. After much testing the problem continued on this heli. And doesn't on another. It was a wiring issue.

I'm still not sure if you can run the Spektrum regulator (safely) on 6v regulated. But the problem continued after the regulator was removed.

IT's what I do.
