I have been giving some serious thought to running a Powerbus setup for the HV servos in the Whip Gas heli. Either that or connecting a 2 battery connections to the electronics. One direct to the receiver and the second direct to the CGY750 Gyro.

Who is using a config similar to these two options with success?

Could you give feedback as to why or feel free to make observations and suggestions to other viable solutions/products to achieve reliable servo power distribution.

Cheers

That's what I do with my gassers

Except the 2nd battery is a Jewel going into the flybarless system which is a Helicommand.

I use either a LiFE or LiPO battery with a Fromeco "Deans to JR" adapter

the adapter is available with 2 or 3 JR type connectors.

I normally use the two wire version and replace the Deans side with an EC3 connector and then plug one of the two rx plugs directly into the rx and the other into a Y connector on a channel from my GY750 (usually throttle)

On models that use EI systems I get the 3 wire connector and plug the 3rd wire into the EI unit

With this setup its a very easy way to connect the large gauge connector systems into your radio and it provides multiple power sources to the electronics, although to be fair if you lose the rx or the fbl it won't matter

If you want to use a more expensive solution the same connection strategy will work its just that these adapters are simple to use and appear to be reliable, I've been running them for a couple of years now on a lot of different models. They are not nearly as expensive as a power bus although they only allow for one battery side connection.

Thanks Raja and Carey. Appreciate your input. For some reason I didn't see the last reply.

I did go with a multiple output LiPo adapter lead for the time being. I made a nice custom one up myself as I quickly got tired of trying to locate any suppliers here in Australia. I found one at Horizon in the U.S. but they wanted $40 shipping for two $6 leads. Ahh, pass thanks

Can you post any links to where I may be able to buy ready made leads with 2 and 3 Futaba plug outputs here in Australia? Or anywhere really that doesn't charge ridiculous prices for shipping? I would like to know for future reference. It doesn't worry me which battery connection type it has as I change them to XT60's anyway.
I did search through Fromeco's web site.

Cheers
