Hello,

I have a BeastX and ever since fitting it and Savox 1258 servos with a WR Hercules BEC I have had RX cutouts on both 36MHz and 2.4G.

Someone said it would be a static hit but I find this very hard to believe. To me it is caused by either :

A: WR Hercules, or

B: BeastX.

I have had it do the odd strange swashplate jiggle on the bench for no apparent reason and will be replacing the BEC with a LiFe pack.

What are your thoughts ? (First flight on 2.4G ended in a crash $$$)

Too scared to fly it now

Should I send the BeastX back to Germany for checking ?

That's only a 3Amp BEC , and you've got pretty high power servos..

Bet replacing the bec with a good RX pack sorts it ..

ANY FBL system needs a good power supply .....

Its the WR Hercules Super Mini 10A/16A Peak unit and it cost $79.99USD so I'm more than a little annoyed.

HIROBOWEN --> Is it Spektrum or what 2.4Ghz brand?

IF its Spektrum, you should se on the RX's led if the Rx has rebooted due to a brown out.

It is a Futaba T8FG.

I am not concerned with the radio's reaction to this as it happened with two totally different radios.

The BEC has two output leads going to the RX. My major concern is the cause of the reaction and its total elimination given its occurrence with both JR PCM 36MHz and Futaba 2.4G FASST.

This had never happened with the flybared setup with a Hyperion 4A BEC.

Hope this clarifies things a bit.

My thought was the other way around: If it was a Spektrum, then the blinking(or not blinking) rx led would tell you if it was a reboot due to insuficient power from the BEC, or something like that.
(All rx's would reboot if the voltage get to low)

So, it would then tell you that you have a power supply problem, if the led was blikning.
Do you know anyone nearby that use Spektrum? (you could install and testfly...I guess you'd probably have the same issue, but then the rx would give the answer if you have a power supply problem...

I dont reallt know how to test this another way...other then getting another BEC and hope problem goes away.

Thanks AAKEE,

I am replacing the BEC with a 2s LiFe pack and hopefully this is the answer.

I am running a BeastX on my Compass 6hv with a separate 2S lipo reciever pack going straight to the reciever. I think 50 size electric and up not running a separate pack is asking for trouble. Reason is casue what happens if one of you baatery connectors come unplug or something like that, you have no way saving the heli. Dont ask me how I know this.

I have a WR Hercules Super Mini 10A/16A, when i first used it it would do some funny power jumps, found out it was the micro selector switches that are surface mounted has dislodged partially from board, i resoldered and now rock solid power !
look at it carefully as the soldering on some is not that great.
