The Futaba receiver would fry into a lump so I put the diodes in to make sure it does not receive more than it can handle. I am running the two pan/tilt servos off the same 6 VDC battery which is more power to keep from stuttering when I rotate the camera around. I did not have enough channels left on my Spectrum DX7 to operate the new camera since I rigged the working guns on the ship and the are running off the Spectrum.
I hope this helps. RG
