Designed in house by the HobbyKing Enginerds, this handy power distribution board has the same foot print as our Multri-rotor control boards and is the ultimate solution for tidy power distribution wiring. Simply use 3.5mm male connectors on your ESCs and plug a battery in. The PCB is Gold plated for optimality efficiency and also features a bling port (aka 2 pin JST size auxiliary power out) Perfect for powering LEDs or any accessory fitted to your Quadcopter.
Features. Current: 4 x 20A Outputs (MAX) Power Input: XT60 with 12AWG wire Motor output: 4 x 3.5mm Female bullet plug Aux output: 2 pin JST compatible Weight: 27.3g (including wires)
I use this with the hexTronik DT750 Brushless Outrunner 750kv(http://hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewIt em.asp?idProduct=6247). I use 4 of these motors and 3 S battery for my quad. And my quad barely lift, do you think its to small board or some of the wires cant handle that much from my 4 motors?
My old quad has this PDB, DT750 motors, 30A ESCs, 10x4.5 props, 3S 2800mAh battery and 1,25kg and flies like a charm, so the problem is somewhere else. You have to write your whole setup, the problem could be insufficient prop size or pitch, too much weight, wrong throttle calibration and so on.
Yes. I did the same thing. I made a harness that connects the JST aux on this thing to the vrx, camera and the voltage sensor on the KK2. You will probably get lines on the video feed if you do this without an LC filter.
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.
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.
