Orange receiver min volt question
Does anyone out there know what minimum voltage do the orange spektrum compatible receivers (R410 and R415) operate? ie. can a 1s 160mah lipo be used?
This is the proposed arrangement:
1s 160mah lipo
micro bl esc
HK A05 bl
modified Cox Icon IC CS6 (6gm) servo board with magnetic coil/5kohm pot

I think they will operate on 1 lipo. I have operated Spektrum AR6300 and AR6110
on 1 lipo with good results. I have a 6 ch HK orange receiver on order and will
report the results operating on 1 lipo.
. If you want to operate a brushed motor with these
receivers you will probably have a hard time finding a good low cost unit.
I designed one my self which is operating great. If anyone is interested I
can send you a schematic and layout.

the r415 will do 1S. the r610 i got down to 3 volts, but the servos got dodgey then. i think the voltage regulator start to have problems about the 3 volt mark. but thena gain, you should not be flying at 3 volts.....
hobbyking has a nice 3A brushed ESC, but at 10 dollars, its cheaper to get a BL ESC!

Thanks for your reply people!
Now, if I use the 415, and the modified servo board/coil is with a regular 3pin female plug (that fits ok in the R410) can I use an adapter wire/plug to be connected to this receiver? Or am I asking to burn something in the process?

Maybe in a hand launched glider you can run an AR6300 on 1S, but I wouldn't on anything else.

Hi, there again!!
Nope I am not using an AR6300.
When I saw Graham Stabler's modified servo board for magnetic actuators diagram(The link is in this forum somewhere), I saw that the parts to remove from the connections were the servo motor and the servo pot. And likewise substitute the motor for the coil and the pot for a 5kohm potentiometer for control surface centering (because otherwise there would be no feedback to the servo board.) Since I am really new in this micro/indoor arena, I am trying to save a few bucks (which by the way are very few, Ha! Ha!) and use two old Cox IconRC CS6 6gm servos for the project. The model is a
FG DH Beaver in conventional gear configuration:
HK micro BL esc
1s 160mah lipo (Nanotech)
the two modified servo boards
Either the HK orange R410 or R415 (if they work, this is the thread question).
When I saw the original thread on printing directly into foam (WF forum), I just got really enthusiastic on the idea. I have purchased a few receivers/escs/Bl motors from HK. But I am afraid that the project might not work or worse burn something. The only RC equipment I can use is Spektrum (I have a DX8 for Xmas) so other brands of receivers would not apply. On my next reply I will try to include shots of the model with the motor installed, and some others from the servos as they are now. I even created a new thread to see if somewhere I might also get ideas on how to modify my X6650 printer to print directly on foam and of course save a few grams of parasite weight.
In the meantime ...to all of you thanks and Fly safe and happy landings!
