BeastX, 7100R and A123 pack setup?
I use a 7100R receiver and A123 battery pack, no regulator. I've had this setup on a few helis and really like it, simple, clean and works great. Now I'm planning on setting up my first FBL heli and need a little help. It a Vibe 50 with 8717 servos, BeastX, 7100R, A123 pack and the JR FBL head and a BLS251 on the tail. Is there a simple, clean solution with what I have now or do I need to get some type of regulator/power bus or something? I have found a post that said power the tail servo off the 7100R and pull the signal wire out and just have it plugged into the BeastX. Is this a good option?

I don't think I want to cut any wires on my tail servo. Don't really like pulling the signal wire out if I don't have too. You know how Futaba uses the round cable setup on there high end tail servos. Maybe I should look for a HV tail servo before hacking anything up. Thanks!"220-221 whatever it takes"

I'm running this set-up on two N9's pulling the signal wire is the simplest solution. Works a treat.

Your AR7100R is a regulator, just run the servo power leads to it, and use the signal from the beast x.
