Can I use this board with Afro 30A esc's and 20A motors?
 BuBu1 226 points
If you are sure that your motors do not draw more than 20A each, yes you can use this board. The ESCs current ratings have no impact here.

I bought this and installed it. Hooked up my 15 AMP ECS's , Motors, MC, and receiver. I plugged my battery in and... POOF!!!! It shot out sparks and smoked real bad!!!!!! :(

Can I use the aux plug for a battery sensor or does it have a lower voltage than the main output plugs
 BuBu1 226 points
They are in parallel from the other plugs, no lower voltage. Good idea to use that for a voltage sensor.
 AlexRaz 133 points
Yes, that's what I use it for.

after buying the Preditor 650 quad here and taking hk's advice both through their chat and product link I purchased this board and it is a absolute no fit there is positively no possible way to mount this board to the Prediter 650 another hk stuffup

I have used double side tape to mount it.
 Braedon 1 points
if you are running the kk2.1.5 or any other kk2 version then you can mount the pdb to the bottom of that because their holes match up
 beachhouse1954 46 points
thankyou for your input but sadly it does nothing to resolve the issue that this board was not and is not the correct board for the Preditor 650 quad. Firstly using double sided tape to affix a main power board very very bad idea not to mention the thought of how bad your wiring must look. Secondly as to the kk board that true but the board does not fit into the Preditors central spine and fitting it on the battery tray? yeh well not a great idea and a even worse look. sorry guys but this board is not suitable for this quad

Good product though quite heavy. Nice when you exchange your escs one in a while to other quads because you dont have to de-solder the leads from normal power distr boards. To be used with larger quads, not for mini/micro quads. I will mod mine with XT60 connectors instead of the 3.5mm bullits as I use these as a standard with escs. I like the optional LED-outlet.

Simple and convinient board fo power distribution on quad copters with 4 speed controllers.

Soldered connectors (3,5mm) are exposed do short circuit if you don´t protect them with some hot gun or epoxy glue.

Good board, simplifies the connection of ESCs, however for me, I preferred to desolder the connectors of 3.5 mm and weld Nylon T-Female Connectors. Can always extra welding points empty, for example a Bec.

Good power board. It aligns perfectly with HK control board. See my quad under construction in files sections.
