Will the Futaba BPS-1 sensor work with the vbar 5.3 silverline?

Yes it will work, i am using one in my 700, old gv-1 sensor to v-bar 5.3 pro.
Don't know what BPS-1 stands for.

Sorry, just looked it up, didn't know futaba made a backplate sensor.
Try it and see, should be able to tell if working in the v-bar setup.

BPS = back plate sensor, duh.

ok but with a spectrum backplate sensor how does that work with the BPS-1 backplate sensor hole on the 105 is there room in a diffrent spot on the backplate to install the spectrum backplate sensor

That is too bad. I was going to use mine. The Vbar instructions make it sound like you can.

I think the problem is that the vbar sensor port puts out 3.3v and the BPS-1 needs 5.2v. Not enough voltage for the sensor to work properly.

If that is true then it should be fairly easy to split the connector out to put power in from a different source.

I kind of do this with using a phase sensor on a mini v-bar; only the signal pin goes to rx-a and the power connection goes to else where.

I wish Futaba put the voltage specs somewhere. I measured the sensor voltage to the pick up on the Vbar and it is 3.5 volts. And i did the same on the Futaba 750 and it is 3 volts. What am i missing? Dose the sensor voltage go up some how?

elmobad spektrum sensor
there is plenty of room to mount sensor elseware on the back plate. my sudgestion is to mount it on the fuel inlet side on the motor. the reason for this is we all know that from time to time the exhaust bolts loosen up and some burnt oil runs down the side and gets all over, with it mounted on fuel inlet side it gives u a better chance on not soaking the sensor with oil!
