I am building a t rex 700 le and Im thinking of using the spektum ar7100r instead of the align governor and reg that comes with the kit. My question is this the ar7100r can be switched to 5.2 volts for the rubber and gyro but not on the cyclic so does this mean they would be running at 7.4 volts or do i need another step down if so then i might as well stick with aligns electics.

The Ar7100R has a built in 5.2v reg for rudder as well as the aux 2, gear and throttle channels..The cyclic servos receive straight 7.4v when plugged into the rx..

I went with AR7100 and LiFePo4 packs for my T700N.
I run Airtronics 94758z and did not want to run raw lipo on those.
The LiFe packs give 6.6 or so and are fine on most servos.

I used the Align 2in1 to feed the AR7100R. I simply changed the connectors to deans.

I know some warn against using the 2in1, but I've had good success with mine in my 3 600Ns, 700, and JR Vibe 90 SG. I've never had one fail in flight, but I have replaced as a result of a pre-flight inspection.

My FBL Vibe 50's are running DS610's on straight LiPo with AR7100. Works great.

The 7100R will give you an unregulated 7.4V to your cyclic servos. If your running servos that can handle 8V, there is no issue.

Your Align 610's will handle 8V with no issues. I have run them for over 1 year and never once had an issue.

I recently just switched out to the new JR DS8917, which so far has been awesome and feels just a bit better than the Align servos.
