Question
Why doesn't the Talon have 2 Power Leads?

I would like an answer directly from someone at Castle who made the decision to only have one power lead.

I'm not looking for beta testers who tested it...I want to know the reasoning.

Are the servo connectors being shipped with the Talon able to handle 9A of continuous current without heating up?

I believe there is a perfectly good reason behind it, I'm just very curious for the explanation.

We are taught in electronics to never exceed the rating of connectors and the Talon's BEC is clearly exceeding the Amp rating of a servo connector.

We've been told that the larger BEC is to help with brown-out due to heavy duty digital servos...but to me, only having power through 1 connector could even make the matter worse.

Please explain, I have full faith in Castle...just really want to know the reasoning.
