Default Rabbit (VT-90) current draw ?

Hello,

I am working on a new jet and I will use my SuperReg for the Rx and servos with 2 x 2S lipo as input, output at 6v (from 8.4v), resulting in a capacity of 7.5A max current output. I was thinking about the idea of connecting the turbine (batt input) to the SuperReg output (with the receiver).

Is 6 volts is enough for turbine (pump and plug) to run properly ?

Is the turbine at startup or while running may draw more than 7.5A (or should I use the TurboReg at max 17A) ?

Do you see any problem of driving both the receivers/servos and the turbine from the same source (the SuperReg with 2 inputs)?

Thanks,

Hello Robin
6 volts are not enough, especially with kerostart
Kerostart burner draw peaks of more than 10 amps
