2S guide http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=341139

Any 3 amp Diode will work. There is a .7 volt drop through the diode. Its a proven method for dropping BEC voltage down to 1S voltage when running a 2 cell brushless setup on the AR6400 in UM planes.
awesome, thanks for the info ...

I've decided to direct solder my tail motor wires. I've got enough length in case I have to cut and resolder new motors on. I'm just torn on removing the connector and soldering to back of pcb, OR leaving the connector and soldering to front of pcb....... Any suggestions dylan or anyone whos done this. The connector is worn out probably from tinning the male connectors and shoving them in..

I just started to read on people changing the mosfets on the pcb, when and why are people doing this do they just wear out after awhile?? I hope I never have to do this! Those things are tiny

Removing the connector can be a chore if your not good at the micro soldering. I have gone to the dual tail FET using the main FET's, with the signal wire passing through the board, 24 gauge Silver teflon insulated wire leads soldered to the main motor plug (which is now the tail output) with micro bullets. changing booms is easy now and there are no wires wrapping around the main board (except the motor leads)

Burnt tail FET's are pretty much always from having the tail motor wires short to each other.

I figured out a slick way to turn the C05M into a 2S motor, put the magnet bell from the 3700KV C05M on it, and you get exactly half the KV I will definitely be playing around with it soon.

C05M 11,500KV has 6 magnets, 3700KV has 12.

yes I watched it but do they just burn out every now and again or something?? Is it pretty noticeable when they do

BTW I have never burnt an FET on any of my MCPx's (knock on wood)

I have had thoughts about doing the bullet connectors as well thats an awesome idea. I don't have the capabilities to use the main motor plug because i have the steve and not the aeo like you. Don't know what to solder to get your same results. I'm probably going to solder to the front of the board and use bullet connectors attatched to the main frame where the boom meats to have a "quick" change as well I think thats an awesome idea, as much as I change my tail

Thesteve solders to the same spot as the AEO to get 100% throttle linearity.

In fact, Thesteve and the AEO converter work exactly the same for all intensive purposes.

Try upping the pitch a few points over the stock blades.

But don't I have to remove a resistor?? (can't find the resistor anywhere, pretty positive I don't have a resistor on my steve converter, but I have no clue.... I want to solder to that point to get linear throttle but don't want to do it if it won't work. Right now I'm soldered to the front of the board motor + spot

Sneak peak! New horizon hobby secret helicopter!!!!!!!!!!


Ok heres my solution to the tail motor connector failing FOR NOW I'm sure I'll end up with a different solution eventually but I think tis will do for now. Soldered to the front of board and ran the wire through my landing gear.

Top secret BLADE helicopter project sneak peak! Could this be the 120cp!?
