    BEC receiver and mechanical speed control questions?

    I have an old Rustler with the mechanical speed control and a receiver with BEC. (2015 I think)
    Will the speed control shut down if the battery gets to low? (no receiver battery)
    If I convert this to a XL5 will I need a receive battery? Thanks; Don

    Yes, the speed control will stop functioning wherever it is at (full throttle, for instance) if the receiver looses power.

    Converting to an XL5 will eliminate the need for a receiver battery due to the new ESC itself powering the receiver.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.
