Need setup help.
I am wanting to run 2 or 3 cell lipo for my rx on my Hawk 30. I have the CC10BEC but I am not sure if it is hooked up right. I have drained to batteries when the switch was off. What am I doing wrong. Right now I have the the battery running to the switch then the bec running to the rx. Should this be another way? What is causing the battery to discharge while the switch is off? Should I run the battery then bec then switch to rx?

Please Help.

Sompe "power safe" switches, those that allow the reciever to stay powered if the switch fails will do that, the current from the battery doesnt actually pass through the switch.

Most switches fail they fail open, whats happening is that a small current is going through the switch that holds the regulator in an off state. When the switch opens that signal is removed and the regulator powers up.

In short, that small control voltage, if left hooked up, will eventually kill your battery. I'm guessing here because I'm not familiar with those exact components but if the battery is plugged into the regulator and the switch is "off to the side" so to speak, thats whats happenening.

I had the same problem with this BEC but I had wired the battery to the BEC then to the switch. Once I rewired the BEC to be after the switch my problems were resolved. Suggest you double check that the switch is before the BEC and also what other current drain is in the circuit.
