Hi ALL, I'm here hoping someone might be able to tell me what's up with what i've just installed in my Mugen MBX5.
Having decieded that running Lipo's to power the electric's is the way of the future i soon realised that i needed some sort of regulator, with Lipo reciever packs being 7.4v's an all. I was going to use the VXR Racing one as it's rated @5amps but then noticed it's ONLY compatable with Spektrum and One Futaba reciever. So after some more reseach found the NOVAK made a 3amp one that's susposed to work with all recievers .........
So i'm using
KO Propo KR-297FZ reciever (nothing works at all unless i move the power input from the BAT slot to either channel 1 or 2, this ain't any good as i need to use 2 servo's. I'm guessing the signal wire isn't used on that slot ??)
Also tried a NOVAK XXL Reciever, I can now power everything using the BAT slot but the servo's "judder" nearly all the time, but it's even worse if you move either servo. this all stops if you unplug EITHER servo
Servo's are :-
Steering Sanwa ERG-VZ
Throttle Hitec HS-645MG
Also tried a cheap and cheerful one i keep as a spare, all act in the same way
Needless to say the set-up works perfectly when using my trusty HUMP packs
My only GUESS is having 2 high powered servo's is overloading the regulator, but i wouldn't have thought it could be aimed at high end nitro market if this is the case ???? i really dont know how many amp's those 2 servos should be pulling ?? and i'd have guessed @ very little when there stationary.
Anyways if anyone can help it'd be great thanks
