I've been flying Spektrum rcvrs now since mid December and have never experienced a brownout or anything else but I'm kicking around the idea of powering my rcvr and servos from seperate pwr supplies.

Am I alone on this subject or have others already made the change..??

Your input is welcome.

Can't see the advantage myself

If your power goes to your servos.....your doomed

If your power goes to your rx.....your doomed

If your that worried then get a Powerbox Gemini regulator

It is a dual redundancy regulator that uses 2 batteries. Everything is doubled up on it. Even if you unplug the switch...it stays on

I use it on my 90, and to be honest, wouldn't use anything else on a costly high end machine.

On my Trex I have the align lipo and reg and have never had an issue with rx or servo power at all.

I too have considered this arrangement but not yet tried it. A small 6 or 9 volt RX battery and a suitable 4.8 or 6 volt for the servos. As long as they share a common ground this should work well, a constant voltage and no heavy current through the RX.

Have a look at the SGP ReactorX. It is designed power the cyclic servos with 6v or 6.8v and then rest of the electronics get 5.2v. This seems like a very plug-n-play set up, especially for those wanting to run high power set ups.

Hey this looks promising but it's still is powered by a single battery.
