Hi.. I have some questions on the micro beast plus I got with the 700e TOP combo I just got. The 1st question is I noticed in the manual for the beast plus that an optional cable is needed to use just a spektrum satellite receiver for the heli. I then read that this because you can only run 1 satellite this way, it is only recommended for smaller helis. Is this true or is anyone flying the 700 this way? The second question I have is I am going to run a HV setup with a 2 cell lipo running directly to the beast plus system. I see that this will make everything hooked up to the beast run on the same voltage that the lipo is giving the system. So if you connect the satellite to the beast, does it need to have the voltage stepped down or can it run on such a high voltage? Thanks for the help.

The Align BL815/855 servos and Microbeast Plus are all 2S LiPo rated.

Thanks guys.. my question about the voltage step down was pertaining to the satellite receiver tho. Can the satellite handle a 2s lipo powering it. I thought I remember reading some where that the voltage the satellites run on is 4 volts or something

With a question as important as this, I would not be asking anyone for advice, I would be looking at the device specifications.

Trust but verify. That is not directed as a slight to WC.

Flying a 700 helicopter using only a single satellite receiver? You can't seriously be considering that. That practice has NEVER been recommended.

Plug a standard RX into the beast with at least one satellite connected to the RX and use the HV power system of your choice. With a 700 you have plenty of room for a proper receiver and the extra ounce won't be a problem.

Satellite RXs by themselves don't like high voltage, they usually get fed by a 3.5V regulator built into the main RX.

you are correct np lol
Input voltage

3,5 V - 8,5 V DC (Operation with 2 cell LiPo possible)

he asked us and I told him since I do have a hv set up so I do know a little

when mot people say hv there thinking 7.4 not many use 8.4

This is not to be confused with using the AR7200BX and AR7210BX Spectrum units which have the receiver and BX integrated into a single unit that does require only a single remote receiver. (A primary antenna being built into the receiver/BX unit.)

Totally missed my point, WC. RTFM if you want specs, don't rely on a clown.

rather than pick on old clown why dont you help the op and give him the specs like i did.

Thanks WC! I appreciate your input. By the way, I did try looking at the specs online (or RTFM) on actual spektrum receivers but couldn't seem to find specs on just the satellite. After reading that the beast sends the input voltage you supply it directly to all its ports and anything plugged into them, I just wanted to ensure and double check that satellites can handle direct 2s lipo voltage.

You help yourself, when you help yourself. Look it up. Don't rely on others memories and guessing.

I know what the max voltages are from documentation before I plug anything in. Ask Turbo Boom why.

WC, This is more help, than anything you could do... by giving the answer. Teach a man how to fish...
