Default Batshare 2nd output + MatchBox

Hello, has anyone had a similar problem?

One of my SM Batshare outputs is going to my AR700 Rec. batt input, but I do not have an extra servo port to put the second Batshare output.
Can I plug this second Batshare output in the JR Matchbox that I'm using for the ailerons?
If I can, should I use the AUX/BATT port or one of the other remaining ports?

My setup consists of 2 A123 6.6 - 2 switches - Batshare - (one output to the Batt/Data AR 7000 Rec. port)
5 JR 8711 + 2 JR 821
DA 50cc

Regards,

Marcelo

Hi Marcello,
If you do not have a second open port on your receiver you can "Y" it in with one of your servo outputs. I think this is the best way to go.

Hello Ritchey,

I used an "Y", as you described but the servo went kind of crazy, not respondind properly, looked like it was on "tilt". The Y extension was on of those JR with amplifier. I took it off and the servo worked fine. It was a JR 821 that I used for the choke. I flew the plane like that, but would like to know if I really need to plug the second line in another port. Or do you think the problem was the amplifier Y?

Regards,

Marcelo.

Hi Marcelo,
You should not "Y" into a channel that uses an amplifier. Only "Y" into a channel that goes straight to a servo. You can fly it without the "Y" but your receiver bus voltage will drop when your servos what heavy currents.

Actually, none of my channels use an amplifier. The JR Y extension has an amplifier itself. If I use a plain Y extension you think I will be alright?
Regards,

Marcelo.

Hi,
The "Y" amplifiers only work when the output of the receiver is close to the actual battery voltage. You cannot use these with Futaba receivers and JR or Spektrum 2.4GHz receivers. They are just problematic in general. I recommend against using them is there is any way not to. Try using a plain "Y" extension.
