Default new set-up

i am revising radio set-up in my 40% extra. will use 2- a123 2500 packs, power expander eq10, and cellpro 4s 4a charger. since the cellpro charges each cell individually, i propose to run charge leads direct and not use the charge plug on the eq10. do you concur? suggestions? thanks, paul byrum.

Hi Paul,
Using the CellPro 4S charger this is the only way to do this. Just remember that you cannot charge both batteries at the same time because you still have a common ground and the CellPro cannot handle a common ground correctly. Let me know if you have any more questions.

thank you for speedy response. question: i read that Power Commander regulated voltage to the receiver at 5.0 volts. is that receiver only or receiver and servos? i would rather have 6.0 to the servos. thanks for your time and patience. paul byrum.

Hi Paul,
The PowerExpander Eq10 (Power Commander???) regulates the input to 5.0V for the receiver but passes the input voltage directly to the servos. What ever voltage you put in at the Deans connectors will go to the servos. Let me know if you have any other questions.
