The HKPilot 2.5 Power Module incorporates both a way to power your HKPilot and accessories and report battery voltage and current to the HKPilot, this can be viewed in the HKPilot’s stored logs or live with a telemetry radio. All through a single and tightly included 6-pin cable that directly matches the HKPilot’s connector. The on-board switching regulator outputs 5.3V at a maximum of 2.25A, and can be used up to 18 Volts (4S LiPo) and at a maximum of 90 amps. The Power Module is ready to use with T-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.

Specifications:
Max input voltage: 18V
Max current sensing: 90A
Switching regulator outputs: 5.3V at 2.25A max
6-pos Molex cable plugs directly to HKPilot
Voltage and current measurement configured for 5V ADC

Decent enough power module. Thought one thing you should know is that the HK Pilot boards and attachments use Molex Picoblade 1.25mm plug (White), they do not use the Hirose DF13 plug (Beige).

While the 5v output of this module should be 5.25v, this module is actually outputting 5.50v. The pixhawk/hkpilot board detects this overvoltage condition and faults the board.

Soldering quality is disgusting! If you're planning to use the cables/ T connectors, do yourself and your craft a favor by re-soldering them.

On the positive side, it works beautifully and the DC-DC converter piggyback board is of great quality.

Works as advertised.
I replaced the input T connector with XT60 and soldered directly to the PDB the output wires. Nice thick 12awg wires.
For Arducopter I had set a value of 17Amps/volt but I think 12-13A/v should be better.
The 5V SBEC was kinda in my way, trying to fit it inside a Trifecta frame, where the PDB is, so I removed it, connected it with wires (looks like only 4 out of 5 pins are used) and placed the regulator somewhere else.

I am using this on the HKAPM micro, with slight modification to the cord. It worked right out of the box, with minimal setup through the Mission Planner software.

BE CAREFUL and check this Power Module before installing. I installed without checking and immediately smoked it. After the smoke cleared I found the positive (Red) and negative (Black) leads on the output side were reversed. The Red lead was actually negative and the Black lead was positive. The input side was wired correctly.

I had to get the one with T connectors ...So a bit of soldering for me .

BUT

EVERYONE SHOULD DOUBLE CHECK THE SOLDERING ON THESE AND Really TAKE 5 MINS TO REDO THEM .

Otherwise perfect Item cannot miss the amp/volt readings any more

Get this one if you don't want hassel of powering up the board and you get the voltage data for FPV as a bonus!
