Question
UBEC with Vector

I generally don't use the BEC on a ESC, but use a UBEC for obvious reasons. Wiring in a Vector and before I blow something up where would the UBEC wire into the Vector? I know the ESC plugs into throttle...but what about the UBEC OR....does thorough the marvelous engineering at ET is the need for a UBEC mitigated in some way. In other words...do I still have control of my surfaces when a ESC blows out like I do with the UBEC ?

BTW, the ESC has a BEC, I just have the red pin pulled and taped down to prevent any chance of a short and have been using the BEC.

Thanks

I THINK I figured this out...UBEC plugs into Battery port of Receiver...if wrong, it seems to work. If I should not, please chime in and let me know...thanks.

That will work fine as long as you are not over 6 amps current draw on your servos. Please see "3.5.5 Receiver Connection Harness Load Capacity (Fixed Wing Only)" in the manual for additional info.
