Multiplex Cularis Power set-up

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I kind of put the horse before the Cart and purchased the power package before the actual plane (because it was not in stock)- Now my question- do I really have to follow the recommendation on installing a separate receiver battery?- I will be running a 2100 ma Lipo and the supplied BL37/II BEC and the Himax 3522 Motor- I know their reasoning behind it because of six servos, but I hate to add the extra weight- also in the instructions they say to disengage the power supply from the BEC if you are using a separate receiver pack-question,- would it do harm if you left it on?-kind of nice to have the assurance of lots of power for a long duration flight (if you where using a separate RX pack)! -
Like to hear your opinion from you Cularis fliers out there

Extra Battery

Yup, disconnect the on board BEC of your ESC, you run the risk of letting the smoke out so to speak otherwise. what happens is the on board BEC tries to charge the Batteries and the result is bad news. There are no ESC's that supply enough current to drive 6 servo's on the market yet. I suspect that is going to change in the near future, though. Castle Creations has a separate BEC unit that is fairly inexpensive and weighs a lot less than a battery pack for now.

S.P.A.D.s, Fibreglas & Balsa EDF's, Foamies, Brushless powered and nitro balsa planes, they're all in my hanger, just don't explain what it all means to the mrs, eh?
