Hey, Ive never run HV and wanted to hear how people run their Hv setups. Im going to run a straight 2s lipo to the vbar to power torq servos. Do you run a switch inbetween the vbar and the battery or just a servo lead into the vbar. I dont really want to be pulling on a servo extension everytime I plug in the electronics. Any feedback would be appreciated.=Jay

i use another wire to plug my batties into so your not pulling on the reciever or FBL unit. on the nitro i have a switch between battery and reciever.

i also run two hot wires, one to the reciever and other to fbl unit, probably don't need to but makes me feel better.

Yes, you should because the servo leads are only good for 5A. So, when you double up on them, they will carry 10A. I use a deans connector between the Y and the 2S batt. Very easy to plug and unplug with no potential for damage.
