Default Batt chn on Rx for 2nd output from CC BEC?

Can I use the empty batt channel on a Spektrum 6000/7000 series Rx for the second output from the CC BEC pro? I know the batt channel is for binding but the bind plug is looped to cause the binding process to begin. I thought I read that some where. I was watching the MicroBeastx settup vids and it looks like he has something plugged into his batt channel on his 7000 Rx. I assume it would be a BEC ouput because it is a FBL heli and you need that extra juice for the servos.

I do not have Spektrum but if necessary, a "Y" to any channel works well for any battery connection.

Fly safe, Glover

using a y connector, but a 6 channel does not have enough channels for 2 extra plug ins. Servo and gyro use 5 the 6th I have a y for ESC and only 1 connector from BEC. servos not getting the full benefit of 5 amps and then the second 5 amps. Just been hovering with that config not really flying around. I know better than to trust that current config. Just want to know if the batt can be used simply for power from BEC.

Just use a y on the gain port and yes on the battery port.

I have a small NiMH buffer pack connected to the batt port on AR 7000. Works great

If you have an empty channel, Yes you can use that channel for the second power output from the BEC.
