Default Best setup?

Hello, I want to use a dual redundant A123- 2300 battery setup to power my Futaba R617FS receiver (using all channels).
So, if I use the BatShare, what is the output voltage going to be?
Or, if I use the SmartFly Sport Reg, what should the output voltage be set at?
Which would be the best setup?

Default RE: Best setup?

If you use a BatShare your servo voltage will be approximately 0.3V to 0.45V lower than the battery voltage depending on current load. If you use the SportReg you need to keep it set at 5.5V as there is approximately a 1V drop-out voltage of the regulator. You need to determine your best setup based on your servos too. Personally, I would use the PowerExpander Sport Plus to protect my investment.
