Default Power Management /R790

Hi

I have recently put together a TopFlite P-51 ARF , with a DA-50r gas engine . I do not have the funds to purchase a new radio system this year , and it is most certainly in the buget for next year .

My present radio system is a JR-XP 7202 , with a JR-790 reciever . I will be useing 9 Hitec servos 5625 MGs . If I install the Power Expander sport Plus , will this help my power distribution problems

I do not want all the power that I need to go through the reciever , I am sure that it would burn the reciever out in a short time .

Any help would be appriciated

Michel

Hi Michel,
Yes, the PowerExpander Sport Plus will direct all the power from your batteries directly to your servos without going through the receiver. I will also provide clean 5V power to your receiver irregardless of what your servos are doing. I also includes the Ignition Cutoff which is a very nice safety feature for gas engines. Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Hi Michel,
Yes, they will work fine. We make a cheaper 2-channel alternative with extra features, the Equalizer II, if you do not already have all you need.
