Am I safe??
I just finished up a new 30% Yak, and have put about 10 flights on this past weekend. I just keep thinking if my battery and regulator setup is ok with the servos that I'm using.
Here's what I have:
1 Hitec 5955 on the rudder
4 Hitec 5985's for the ailerons and elevators(1 on each aileron and 1 on each elevator half)
1 625 on the throttle.
For power I am using the Smart Fly adjustable regulator along with your HD Switch and a Fromeco 2400 2 cell battery.
The reg is set to 6 volts, and I can oly use one of the two connectrs from the switch going in to the Rx. Every other cannel is used up on my 8 channel Rx, so I have no choice.
So far I haven't had any problems, but I wonder if these servos are going to be too much for the regulator.
So, the question is if I'll be safe in the long run with this setup, or if I should keep the plane grounded until I can get something better in there like a super reg and power expander.
Also factor in that I fly the plane pretty hard.
If this regulator did happen to fail due to too high of a load, would it shut down completely in the air, or is it the type that will continue to work until I shut off the switch after landing?
