I plan on running a stright unregulated 2s system with my brand new vbar. I understand that the vbar can handle the voltage, but how to i get power from a 2s to the vbar. Please dont say wires... i know that. I mean I was hoping the vbar would have had some input wires so i dont have to run all that current through two little pins (servo connector). could people please post some pics of your setup(s)
thanks!

I soldered a Deans connector to (2) servo leads (doubled them up) and ran it to the back on my Logo 600 VBAR. Worked perfectly and no issues at all with 8717s

Same as min, 2 servo leads to one ec3 plug. Direct plug into 2s lipo

I think this is a spektrum lead, not sure I got it from a bud (thanks Rob) but should be easy enough to make up.

Just one word of caution when working on connectors and thinner cables, make sure you do not pull on the cable when taking them apart, they break easy.
I usually solder a piece (inch or two) of thicker cable on the connector so i can use that as stress relief
