Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Naza-M unused ESC connections - suitable for power feed?

A thought has occurred to me. I have a F450 with the Naza. This obviously only uses the first four ESC connections. I need a couple of 5V feeds. Can I use these spare connectors in the same way as a spare Rx channel, i.e., leave the signal unconnected and use 5V to feed aux bits? Trying to save on Y cables on the Rx!

:hmm:

Your ideas please!

We used the unused gimbal outputs to power an Ardupilot APM board, we were testing the GPS loging of the ardupilot (worked great).

Just cut the yellow/orange wire so theres no signal being sent anywhere.

Id be careful about current dont draw too much. Dont use it to power a 600mw transmitter or anything. Stick to low current stuff.

Pete, thanks for the confirmation. its only a low power light I';m wanting to power. I was thinking about the 25mW tx but have been advised the 5v feed is probably not enough (needs 6v+).

I shall try it out tomorrow!

I used a spare Naza plug for the LED board and took a feed from the main board for the tx! Both working fine. ~~
