The output voltage to the 130 servos is only 3.7 volts.
The 180 are rated at 6 volts.
I would say you would have to run a seprate ESC controlled by the 3 in 1 to power the servos and the 3s motor. This could be done with the Talon by connection the signal wire from the ESC to a signal point on the 3 in 1.
Probably will not pirouette worth crap because the 130 board sucks big time, no piro compensation.
The second issue I see is the servo layout is backwards, the elevator is on the rear of the 130, on the front of the 180.
The 130 board would have to be mounted 180, servo connectors towards the rear of the 180.
Would be a neat project, but is it worth the time involved?
