Battery plug/ch 6...

If you are using that any open channel will work. If you are using all - then a Y cable will work.

So I can just plug the bec into the battery port? Is there anything I would have to setup on my radio.

Thanks

1. Yes, or "Y" with any servo as in post #2
2. No. As there is no telemetry, you do not have to adjust LBW warnings.

Schematic for Minima and other simple receivers is attached this post.

Photo of a quick adapter is attached:

- Adapter to be read/made without the SPC fly lead when used only with non SPC receivers.
