The HKPilot HV Power Module incorporates both a way to power your HKPilot and accessories as well as report battery voltage and current back to the HKPilot for logging and telemetry data. This can be viewed in the HKPilot’s stored logs or live with a telemetry radio connection. All thru a single and tightly included 6-pin cable that directly matches the HKPilot’s/APM/PX4 connector. The on-board switching regulator outputs 5.3V at a maximum of 2.25A, and can be used up to 45Volts (10S LiPo) and at a maximum of 90 amps. The Power Module is ready to use with XT60 connectors pre-fitted, and shrink wrapped for protection.
Note: The Power Module is rated at 2.25 Amps to power the HKPilot, receiver and peripherals (GPS and Telemetry radio) ONLY. To power servos use an ESC with an adequate BEC or a standalone BEC plugged into the output bus, and remove jumper 1 to isolate the two power lines.
Max input voltage: 45V
Max current sensing:90A
Switching regulator outputs: 5.3V at 2.25A max
Connector: 6-pos Molex cable plugs directly to HKPilot/APM/PX4 'PM' connector
Voltage and current measurement configured for: 5V ADC

- Blade Count:
The connector going to the Pixhawk is the wrong connector (minor pin differences that prevent the connector from going into the board; the side rails and back tabs). There might be a way to shave it down, I tried, but finally pulled the connector off of an old 3DR Power Module and replaced the one on this Power Module. The wire crimped ends are the same for both so it only took a few minutes.
I haven't tried it yet at 9S, but assume that it works if I don't update this post.I purchaed 2 for my 2 quads and they are well built. Measures voltage and current accurately on HKpilot Mini.Very well constructed. Only niggle is the thinner wires as they seem fragile. I used heat shrink to stiffen the lead up covering partially the little connectors as well. Powered my HKpilot Mega with no issues! Remember to remove the jumper on the FC if using this! Doesn't heat up and seems efficient! Worth it's purchase!better quality than previous stuff from hk. all soldered wellWorks, but the connector comes loose easilyvery good, work well, very easy to use, you are worth a try. the price is very affordable. i use to my APM . thanks
