The Matek PDB-XPW is a power distribution board with punch and is designed for X frames. It will take input from 3S to 5S Lipo batteries which are ideal for Racing Drones. Power is provided to four ESCs and it is regulated and synchronized 5V DC and linear regulated 12V DC for all your gear such as Flight Controllers, cameras, video transmitters, RC receivers, LEDs, etc.
It also has built-in 140A current module and offers an XT60PW socket to connect the LiPo pack conveniently. The PDB fits into typical 30.5x30.5mm tower mounts and has large solder tabs making it easy to install in your drone.

I really like this PDB. It has pads for running the signal wire from the ESCs to the FC. An excellent time and space saver. Excellent engineering. I have been impressed with all of the Matek products i have seen so far.
