Default Dual batteries on 659 receiver

Danny,

In another post, someone mentioned that if you were using dual batteries, plug them in on both sided of then receiver to help protect the power bus in the receiver. What do you think? With all the giant aircraft using so many digital servos, do you recommend this?

You could plug another battery into the throttle port, but would have to mix the throttle to another channel if this could be done. Or a Y adapter could be used to plug both into the throttle port.

Keep up the great work.

It should not matter where you plug the second battery in, I actually do this in several planes myself. I like to use a voltage regulator that has a diode to prevent backfeeding from one pack to the other. If you have an open channel, you can use it, or if you wanted to, you could also use a Y harness.

Thanks Danny,

Do you plug the batteries in next to each other, or try and space them out on the receiver if you can?

I space them out sometimes, and other times, have them right next to each other. If you can space them out, it may be slightly better, but overall it really shouldn't matter that much.
