Yes, you can run one of the leads to each spot -- RX and FBL controller. But that kind of defeats the purpose of the dual BEC output. The dual output is there because each connector is good for only about 5 amps.

Where you need the high current capability is in the unit to which the servos are attached. The servos need the juice, the RX only needs a small amount of current.

It would be wise to find a way to have BOTH leads plug into the FBL controller as the path between the servos and their power source is where most of the current is needed. The RX doesn't require gobs of current, as the servos aren't plugged in to it any more. As long as you have power and ground connections between the FBL unit and the RX, the RX will have adequate power to do its job.

The power and ground connections to the RX can be supplied from the FBL controller to the RX via any three-wire harness (except the one from the FBL controller that plugs into the three primary servo outputs of the RX) between the FBL controller and any plug of the RX.

Hooking up to a standard RX, the Aileron and Elevator leads between the two units provides more than adequate power connections for the RX.

-----

Looking at the BEASTx connections, you'd have to get creative to be able to plug both power connectors into the FBL controller. It can be done, you'd have to make a custom cable, however. No biggie if you have the tools and parts.

Your second option - the one you proposed, that of plugging one connector into the RX and one into the FBL controller will work, as the connections between the Aileron and Elevator channels will route needed current through the RX power bus back to the BEASTx.

If you have a HV tail servo, just get a short heavy duty Y harness and plug it in to the tail servo slot. Plug your power input to one arm of the Y and the tail servo into the other.Logo 700, Specter 700, Goblin 700, Trex 700DFC, Gaui X7, Logo 690SX, Logo 600SX; Trex 470 Trex 500
