Tech Notes

WARNING: Digital sub-micro servos have a higher current draw and may overload the BEC of the recommended Electronic Speed Control (ESC). Always be sure to position the ESC for maximum airflow since cooling can significantly aid in the performance of the BEC. Use of a separate BEC (like the UBEC) or receiver battery pack may also be necessary.

Use of servos other than those we recommend may overload the BEC of the recommended Electronic Speed Control (ESC). We suggest the use of only the servos we recommend when utilizing the recommended ESC’s BEC, or the use of a separate BEC (like the UBEC) or receiver battery pack when using other servos.
