I purchased one for my new 5' alien build.
I hope I'm not risking too much ;-)

What is the exact name of the white JST connector? In case I have to crimp them.
What is the voltage on 3S and the 10V connector?

Me Too! :-)

Not sure what you mean here. Are you talking about the part number of the connector itself? It is a JST-SH connector (4-pin and 6-pin)

The 10v regulator attempts to do the best it can with a 3S battery source. It will typically maintain about 1.6v less than the input voltage. This means at a full charge, you will get 10v, but during flight when you can see voltage sags down to 10v on the input side, that regulator will be near 8.5v. As stated in the specs, I don't recommend using it with 3S batteries, but it should work. Most video TX can run down to about 7v.

OK so I could safely solder VCC (I mean 5V VCC here ) and GND directly to the HS1177 and my VTX and will get clean video? Very nice, I can't wait to get it. My alien arrives next week.

The power will be unfiltered. Filtering is only on the regulated outputs. Do you want me to cancel your order?

That's what I mean, 5V and 10V are filtered, yes?
Why are you asking about cancelling the order? Until now everything looks just fine ;-)

I'd love to see a version with OSD. Would make builds much cleaner.

Thought you were talking about bypassing the 10v regulator which would not be filtered. I don't know if it will work for you or not because a lot of noise is generated when the input voltage is that low. If you do have issues, I will take care of you.

No, sorry, the Martian uses a totally different bolt pattern.

Installed pictures?


Do you connect the signal wire from the ESC's to this and then the plug to the FC?

Any pictures of this installed?

Yes, the 6 pin JST connector has the 4 signal wires and 2 grounds.

I have asked one of my Alien testers to send me a pic detailing the connections to the flight controller on his Alien. I'll probably have it tonight to post here.
