Ok. Before you all start telling me to use the search feature, I have been reading threads from many different forums for a while now and can't find a clear answer.
With a single high torque servo in the Summit, I'm adding an external BEC (CC BEC). The servo I am running is a JR Z9100T. It's only rated to run on 6v, so I basically have two options:
1. Attach BEC power leads to EVX-2 battery leads in series (14.8v) and then plug the BEC directly into the RX. Disable ESC BEC.
2. Attach BEC to ESC power leads. Plug black and red JR servo leads into BEC output and white signal wire into RX. Leave ESC BEC enabled.
I think both of the options is a viable solution, but my question is this:
Running this JR servo at 6v, is the servo amp draw going to tax the servo connector (option 2) or the receiver (option 1)? I don't know exactly what servo connectors are rated for, but I think it's somewhere around 3 amps. Should I change the servo connectors over to something a little beefier?
And if it's not an issue for a 6v servo, what about a 7.4v servo? I would hate to fry anything because it was taking too many amps.
Of course, now that I think about it, is this third option viable? But it still leaves the question of whether the servo connector can handle the current.
Thank you in advance for all of your input/suggestions/help. I appreciate it.
