FBL power requirements
Ok.. I'm more than interested on converting and the 3G is within my budget. However, I am happy with my 6V system. 8V would be nice.. but is it really necessary for the FBL system to be happy? I'm speaking in the lines of performance wise, because I don't want to spend more money than I have to on regulators.. etc. I currently have the 2in1 setup. It seems like all the hype is on 8V. If thats the case, then I want to do it right. Just considering my options.

Thanks in advance

6volts
There is a negligible difference between 8volts and 6volts...it's just fine at 6volts really..

Hi Guys

I have had only a few flights on my V Bar system, the most noticeable thing for me was how much more battery power is used on each flight.

I have JR 8717's and a SG Reactor X set at 6,8v and it uses about 600mA on each 8 min flight.

The Reactor X and servos get quite warm, they must be working a lot harder than before.

Regards
Paul

Yes Paul in general on a FBL system you will be using more as you are now driving everything sort of speak on servo control. However you will not experience the amp, shutdown, or burn issues on your Vbar regardless of 6volts or 8 volts etc. ...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...
