Futaba FASST on 8FG. HFP current draw...
Good morning folks! The build is coming along and I wanted to throw a few questions out there.
I'm using a Futaba 8FG Super and the R6208SB reciever. Has anyone used the FASST mode with the HFP? I've also managed to get the S-BUS working with the PWM converter. Can I use these extra channels with the HFP?
Also, is 1 amp enough current for the Hoverfly Pro board and or the GPS board? I'm considering building a linear supply just for those controllers. I realized the ESC had switching supplies after seeing the torrid and reading the manual for the ESC. (imagine that!) I thought I could eliminate a little noise with a few parts laying around.
I recommend no matter what you do that you check the rx voltage with a meter with everything connected.
I made a little video for the CopterControl forum demonstrating why you should use separate ubecs for the camera servos and why you should always check the voltage. I was going to use some small and cheap HK ubecs for the rx and control board but found that even 500mA-1A on a "3A ubec" took the voltage below 5v!
