Help!
R114F Futaba Receiver

I have an R114F Futaba receiver I want to use in a plane that requires 4 channels. I checked the futaba web site and it says a Y harness is needed if
you use all for channels. I did some research and found the adapter is used when you want use a receiver battery. Can I use the receiver without the adapeter if my ESC has a BEC and I don't use a receiver battery?

Thanks,

Kevin

Yes, the Battery Eliminator Circuit powers the RX and servos via channel 3 if using Futaba or Hitec TX or as appropriate for other compatible TX, eliminating the need for a separate battery - indeed, never plug a separate battery in when a BEC is being used.
