I just picked up a velocity 50 and am now wiring the heli. I am going to use the Align 2 in 1 and the align gov. For receiver battery I am using a 2S 1500mah lipo powering an AR7000. I am flying it with a flybar so I won't have to worry about placing a FBL unit. Can anyone post a pic or link to a pic in their gallery of how they mounted and wired a similar setup.

Thanks
-Steve

U won't get much flying done with a 1500mAh pack, I suggest u get a larger lipo, perhaps the outrage 2500mAh pack

Agree with Helijockey.

just for comparison, we run the Outrage NRG 2S 2500 rx packs on the 50's, 3 Outrage 9080 cyclic servo's, 1 9088 tail servo, 1 9088 on the throttle, Spartan 760, MultiGov Pro, and SwitchGlo.

everything on straight 2S, nothing regulated, very hard 3D for 3 flights and we either re-charge or swap out the pack. Heli Direct now has the 2S 2500 rx packs for $16.99

The radio tray on the Vel 50 was designed specifically for this pack, You didn't mention what servo's you were putting in but it sounds like your going to regulate them with the 2in1.

with a 1500ma pack even regulated I wouldn't expect to get more than maybe 3 flights before recharging.

Just something to consider.

I am running An AR7000 with a align voltage regulator for GP780 Gyro with a BLS251 tail servo and for cyclic I have 3 DS8717. I will probably order that outrage lipo you are talking about, the Align lipo I am using for receiver is out of my 600N and is quite old and puffed. $17 is not bad at all

You can run the 8717's on a straight 2S lipo and just get a 2 channel regulator for throttle and the tail servo. The spekturm 2 channel reg is a very nice unit.

Thats pretty much exactly what I wound up doing. I am running the throttle and cyclic on straight 2S lipo and I have the Align regulator for the tail servo. I have an Align DS610 for the throttle so I am just running that on straight 2S as well

I think helijockey was talking about the little wire step down they sell for 6v setups and would not work with an 8.2v setup not the 2in1 thing with the glow driver build in that you are using.

Jason Adamo: I might be misunderstanding you, but if I am running the 2 in 1 that will step the voltage down to 6V for the receiver, and the align step down will then convert the 6V to 5.2. In your post you state that will not work?

Yes I mend the step down wont directly work with a 2S lipo, it must first be regulated to 6v which your align reg is doing.
