This is a updated Version of my Flydubution power distribution board.

I added 2 resitors for driving a led and a voltage divider for the alarn function.
The Board is layed out for solderless connectors (less resistance compared to soldered connectors)

this is the Sensor BOB agqain, its all prepared and ready to go for several senosr combinations, FFIMU, BMA020 and WMP+ can be easily connected without soldering jumpers etc., you will see.
Top of the BOB for the FFIMU from Jussi


Bottom of the BOB for WMP+ and BMA020


And new, the GPSBOB for the FMP04 GPS Module , PirateGPS.
All adapted for our needs.

How much power can the dist board handle? If someone made a heavy lift hex running a 4S lipo, would that be ok?

4S would be even better, higher voltage means less current.
Yes of course should be ok.
The connectors are rated for over 16amp over time, so they can deliver surely about 25amps over a short time.
Please have in mind with the connectors there is a lot marketing involved.
What i dislike on the china connectors is, yes they look good and are gold plated, but you need to solder them, and solder have a much higher resistance then copper or gold and bad soldering on this allready costs many copters.
Most important if you look at the wires which are on a 30amp ESC (which should give a powerfull copter) my connectors can surely handle even more as those tiny wires can handle.
My 30amp esc use only AWG16, which is officially rated for less then 4AMPS!

Ok these values are for permanent installations (power over long terms), its handled a little different in our world.
My connector can handle 4times the current the AWG16 is rated for.
All connector together can deliver 128AMP over long terms, and for our use taking more then 200AMPS will be ok.

i ordered the bobs allready but dont really know if they will reach me before eastern too, but the order is out, for the first little batch, as these are alphas (the bobs, not flyduino).
