AXN and FS-TH9X

Postby RukusDM » Sat Nov 02, 2013 2:05 pm

Just a quick question. I ordered a AXN and a FS-TH9X. The AXN i ordered had the servos and the ESC as part of the kit. I was wondering if I need a Voltage Regulator to supply my Receiver with power. I purchased Turnigy 3s 2200mah batterys as well. I don't have the kit so I don't have any instructions or manuals to look at to see if they say I need one or not. Thanks Doug.

It really doesn't say if the kit ESC has a voltage regulator in it

I'm pretty sure the esc has a bec in it,so you won't need a regulator.

Don't push it too hard with the "kit" ESC, they are under rated at 20A and will get very hot, I would recommend a Turnigy 30A w/BEC as a replacement.

Yes it's extra good as it actually has a switch mode regulator built in!
Compromising with out of control government is like living with a lion, sooner or later the bloody thing will eat you .

You accept the tyranny of the state when it's not being applied to you, when it is: it's too late.

To make the std BEC in the ESC last a while longer I cut all my control serfaces and hinged them with clear long-life packing tape.
It made a big difference to to the load on the servos.
It is usually the BEC dying due to overload that kills the std ESC's in the AXN floater jets and usually the aircraft as well as it will wait till its in the air before dying
causing a crash

Mine hardly gets hot now the control surfaces have been freed up,
