Thank you very much.
I believe you can either power it using a 3 or 4-cell LiPo (this could be your flight pack), or you can feed 5V directly into the pad at the bottom, as shown in this diagram:



As to which is the 'best' ... I don't know ... running from an external 5V source will mean the onboard linear 5V regulator won't be running, so won't get warm / hot ... (correct?)

Cheers
