Diode Voltage Reducing Circuit

In response to the excellent thread on running with LiFePO4 battery packs, I have received many requests for details on how to hook up the parts for the voltage-reducing circuit when you want to connect a LiFePO4 2S battery pack to a plane that uses servos and/or a receiver that is rated for 6v or less.

The PDF attachment is a schematic and notes that follow-up the initial connection description from Flo in Munich on the subject.

If you plan to add this circuit to your plane, be sure to follow all instructions and especially the thorough ground test described in the schematic notes.

If you have feedback or suggestions I'll be happy to update this post and the attachment. Just to be clear about this, I offer this information without assuming any liability for the ultimate outcome of your particular implementation of this circuit, okay?
