Bind brick. Power up Brick with TX throttle up and to left.

The brick will acknowledge the the change and its ready for an ESC signal wire to be plugged in.

Yeh, it did work fine, but i'm wondering if i was just lucky. As i said, i didn't think you needed it as it was working with mine OK.

my 20" bipe is working of 5v bec from the BL esc.... personally i dont think the extra .8v is going to destroy the thing.. if it does, its cheap enough to replace (and gives me a reason to upgrade to the 6400L)

Yes, perhaps a lot of discussion and not enough pic's but what better place to talk about applications and possible problems and mods than the thread directly related to the primary subject?

Should we have seperate threads on every subject relative to the ar6400??

I think not!

For Sale-everything over 250 g
How about the original AR6400 thread

answer to the 5v question

but even going back to the vapor brick there are reports that it works

Bottom Line: Is it safe to run the AR6400 on 5v from the BEC of an external ESC?

It is actually a somewhat of a large discussion, due to the fact that everyone is putting diodes on their positive wires to the receiver.

Thank you for contacting Horizon Hobby Product Support.


If the ESC has a BEC then you can use up to a 4 cell lipo or whatever
the ESC can handle. The receiver can take up to 9.6volts but the servos
are only rated up to 6volts.

Basically, no need for a diode if using a BEC, which is exactly what i thought all along!

That sounds like a generic response and is not what individuals from HH have told us on this board. It's a good thing to have in your pocket when an AS2000 burns up on 5V, though if you don't have the skills and $3.00 to fix it.
