Default Xtream motor and 5 in 1

Random curiosity . I'm getting the xtream motor but I'm curious to know if it would do any damage to the 5 in 1? Like drawing to much power or something? Just wondering .. anyone know? I doubt it would i just wanna make sure. Thank you for input

no, it shouldn't. There aren't any alternative electronics for the 120, so with all these Xtreme motors running around I don't see how it could possibly be a bad idea.

When you plug your xtreme motor into the board, make sure it's mounted in the 120sr. I have seen videos where the motor was allowed to run freely (no load) while plug into the board, and the board started smoking. Motor was pulling more juice than the board could keep up with, while running with no load on it. Automobiles starters, they recommend not to let them run while out of the engine. same principle.
Just a suggestion. Rick
