it looks like when using an external receiver, there is only 1 power wire going into the gyro unit. Its just like the Align 3g. I wonder if there will be a brown out problem??

At least the align 3g uses power from the receiver for the tail servo.
the total g just uses the one power wire for everything including the tail servo and the governor.

no not an easy solution..
even if using the spetrum/jr there still is only 1 rc servo connector power in. these are only rated at 3 amps.

i guess a y-lead into another port is an option

you can easily make a y on any other channel and get as many power inputs as you want.

No I'm really not.. WTF unless you are Futaba even worry about that?
its freaking stupid to argue.

thank you for calling me names, USN

how are you going to get power into the total g??
from your lipo with a rc servo connector or a regulator with a servo connector.

And the Total-G does NOT have an internal receiver. It decodes the signals from the 1-3 Satellite receivers. Or with the Software upgrade Curtis promised, uses the Serial Bus input from the Futaba FASST Rxs.
If it had a Receiver build in there would be antennas.

With JR/Spectrum/Serial Bus you can plug in additional powerleads to the empty input servo sockets or Y into the output servo leads.
With Futaba/Misc you can only Y into the output servo leads since the input leads all have signals on them with the special connection cables.

We have watched the whole power input issues with other flight controls and we have thoroughly tested the Total G. The power in works fine even under higher loading from HV servos. If you have a worry, you can either "Y" harness in seperate power into any of the servo inputs or you can also add a seperate power input into either of the two programming plugs. So you could add up to 8 extra power inputs into the unit if you wanted to. In addition to the regular power input.

The only place you cannot plug extra power in, is into the two EXT plugs, these are not "power in" plugs.

I believe this is incorrect in that sbus is not supported, faast receivers are, however.

We have not tested the S-bus system yet, as we have not been able to get one. So we do not know if it will work with the Total G or not. It is correct to say we know it works with all external receivers and Spektrum.

Im confused here.
HeliVig, if i am using an external fast rx, wouldn't each servo have the same power as provided by the rx? You have to put 3 wire jumpers into the rx at each port right, doesn't the total g just pass on the battery voltage?

The Total G has a common power bus on all the servos (excluding the "EXT 1 & 2" ports), similar to most receivers. So you just have to power any one of the ports to power them all.

Curtis, could you please explain what the EXT 1 and 2 are for?

I was under the impresion that they were AUX ports but if they don't share the same power bus and their max is 5v I am confused

EXT 1 and 2 are for patch cables to go to an external receiver.

Yes, they are for the hookup to external receivers.
