That way I measure the pack voltage and the servos are powered through the BEC in the ESC.
Seems to me like this is a good thing because if the servos do manage to put a heavy drain on the BEC
it's not providing power directly to the receiver.
That is coming directly from the battery. So less chance of a brown out?
So I'm looking for what the advantages and disadvantages are in using the SPC to power the receiver.
I'm seeing the positives but maybe I'm missing something.
Thanks for any help on this.
