It should work. I guess my only concern would be if they bound up and drew a huge amount of current and
basically overloaded the wiring and connectors due to continuous current. A separate battery on the gear
would give you protection against a catastrophic event and you might only have to belly land instead of loosing
the whole plane. I would feel better if you had said that they monitored their own current and would shut down
if they determined there was an overcurrent situation. I know that large sailplanes have this issue with their
single retractable wheel and most of those guys run a separate battery to avoid a disaster with a jammed gear.
The BatShare on the input is looking at the two batteries to be sure they are equal. It does not limit the
current into the unit.
Has anyone used the new Robart electric gear with a smart fly unit? I have a large scale Corsair and want to convert the main gear to electric. I am wondering if there could be any problems powering the gear through the smart fly power expanders. I have the competition 12 units without a regulator for the servos and am using a dual A123 set up with two 2300mah batteries. The servos with this type of expander see direct battery voltage.
I know the new electric gear use an ''amp out'' circuit to shut the electric actuators off at their limits. Since the power expanders are always looking at battery voltage/condition I wonder if there would be any problems here. I know the option would be to power the gear through a separate battery but was hoping to keep this simple.
Thanks for any advice/experience.
