pass this on wasnt sure where to post this but its good info that may shock some and some might have known and its been tested i got this rom another forum ------------------------quoted by junior from mgt forums ------I won a couple Venom battery monitors at a race a while back and just now got around to installing em. (sad I know) You plug it into a unused channel (3) (which I used) or use a Y harness to the battery port. I noticed that it was reading low and I just charged the battery. There is a switch for 4.8V or 6V, I had it on 6V so I switched it to 4.8V and it read good. This tells me that the servos are only getting 4.8V, so know I know there is a built in BEC on at least channel 3, checked the other 2 and got the same thing. I called JR and talked to (Steve) and he tells me that yes all receivers built with in the last 3 years are BEC and to bypass it you need to plug the power into a unused channel or use a Y harness into any channel.
SO, if you are using a JR receiver and running a 6V battery you aint getting 6V, I switched mine to channel 3 and it works great, I tried the Y harness also and worked fine. I gave him hell for not having any info in the manual about this, he said it is a warranty type thing to cover them, I said it was BS that I had $150 digital servos getting 4.8V, he says they will work on it.
Did anybody else know this, or am I the only one?
