plug the two plugs into unused channels on the receiver, use y-harnesses as necessary if the receiver is already full of plugs... the two plugs are to make sure that all the power doesn't flow through a single servo plug which is limited to about 3 amps.

I wonder when someone is going to start making receivers with a higher amperage connector "such as a Deans" built in for the bigger planes.

Ok, this confuses me a little...

If the Regulator has 2 plugs and you put that into a Y that terminates in a Single Plug, then aren't we defeating the load sharing design using two plugs? Which means more than 3A would be passing through a Single Receiver Port? That can't be right, so.....

I think what you are really saying is, (for example), put a Y on the Rudder Port so that it feeds the Rudder Servo and accepts one of the Regulators leads? If necessary, (for example), also put a Y on the Elevator Port to allow connection of the 2nd Regulator lead. Guessing this is what you really mean?

If you fly spektrum, there are a bunch that have high amperage power leads directly into the receiver. No idea if there are options from the inferior brands

Below are just a few of them:

the Y isn't to bring the two connectors into one lead... it's to let you plug into another channel. Pull a plug of a servo out of the receiver, and plug that into the female of the Y, then plug a BEC wire into the other side of the Y, plug the male of the Y into the receiver where you pulled the servo out from.

...then do the same with the other plug from the BEC. This way you're not bottlenecking the power of the BEC through the one plug.

yup, but it's not all that hard to do if you're comfy enough with a little soldering... just need to solder a better pigtail into the servo bus. I did this with one of my receivers...



...servo bus are usually pins that are easy to solder to, put a hole through the Rx case big enough to get the wires through, solder them to the servo bus and you're good to go. I also bolstered the servo bus with a little extra wire, but not really needed.

I just saw a NP video that featured many of the vendors at Wram, and one of the planes featured was 3DHS and what appeared to be a prototype Vyper bipe. A cool feature was that the wings are held with super strong magnets. It looked like it took two people to pull them apart, so they seemed at least as strong as wing screws. Pretty cool.

Will do. I'm definitely considering letting go of the NIB Orange 41... I just am so busy these days I hardly have time to charge batteries so I don't know when I'll get motivated to do it.

Uh, there is a whole thread about it with several videos and a TON of pictures.
