I like the dual CC BEC Pro's feeding 2 receivers like the KM or 1 receiver like AJ. However, connecting the outputs of the CC BEC's together still makes me nervous.
Then I ran across the following product which seems to be quite interesting from
a geek factor:
Any Fanatics using the Booma product?
My goal is to keep it as simple and light as possible. I'm using a Futaba HV Rx, 7955 servos all around and the Hitec programmer for setup.
Any thoughts, links or whatever will be appreciated.
I have 2 CC BEC's, each feeding a separate 8ch HV Futaba Rx, and each Rx operating half the airplane's servos. That's working fine for me. I will never hook two BEC outputs directly together because if they are even slightly different in output voltage, they will fight each other and generate unnecesary heat that may result in one or both BEC's burning out. Each receiver is running 1 elevator, 1 rudder, 1left & 1right aileron servo.
