    BEC usage

    I have a Power Expander Sport Plus that I am trying to use with a BEC on the ignition, to eliminate a seperate battery. I am not using the optical system on the Sport Plus, but using the BEC to power the ignition. I have it plugged in to the E (gear) channel. I am not able to shut of the ignition with the gear switch. It seems to be powered at all times. Using a JR 9303 transmitter. Have I missed something in setting this up?

    RE: BEC usage

    HI,
    Sorry, but I do not endorse this type of arrangement where you power the ignition from the system power. I really don't know anything about your BEC so I have no idea why its not working. I would really suggest you re-think the idea of not using a separate ignition battery unless your plane is worth less than the battery. Mine certainly are not.

    Okay, thanks for the opinion and advice. I will go back to a seperate battery and use the optical system on the Sport Plus.
