    Set up help????

    I have a fresh built Carden 30% extra running a 3w 75 side intake. I want to use one of your power expanders and kill switch but not sure of the model needed and how to power the rec system? I will be using a futaba reciever. I'm still using nicads on my other gassers! Its time to go modern.

    Thanks for the help.

    RE: Set up help????

    Hi,
    To decide on a unit you need to know the battery chemistry you want to use. General guidelines (assuming 1 servo per surface for this size plane) are:

    NiCd/NiMH/A123 PowerExpander Sport Plus
    Li-ion/Li-poly/Li-Mn PowerSystem Sport Plus

    Let me know what questions you have.

    RE: Set up help????

    I've never has any time with li-polys or any of the light weight batteries. What new equipment would I need for the poly batteries?
    Thanks

    Hi Ed,
    If you want to use Li-poly then the PowerSystem Sport Plus would have everything you need minus switches. You can use either two heavy-duty switches (Cermark, JR, etc), one for each battery, or one failsafe switch. Other than a charger that handles li-ion/li-poly that would be all.

    RE: Set up help????

    I'm running a eq6 with two 2700 lit ion bats and I have a ignition cut off. What I'm doing is changing the ignition bat to a 2700!lit ion from a Nicad bat and I need to use a regulator how should I set up your ignition regulator with my current set up? I don't want to have to buy your regulated ignition system I want to use the stuff I have .

    Hi,
    We make an IgnitionReg. It should connect directly to the ignition.
