However, since you're running a LiFe pack, you should be able to run a diode, maybe two in series to be safe, inline with power coming from the pack to drop the voltage for the sensor. If you have a full sized VBar, you could just make up a short extension cable with the diodes inline and plug into the Sensor II port without the need for an extra power wire.
Thank you for the information about the satellite port - regulated voltage. I am running mini vbar and the hobbywing rpm sensor can work up to 8V or so. So, I may not need a diode or two to lower the input voltage to mini vbar and rpm sensor.

Why MrMel said in the video that we could utilize the satellite port to provide power to rpm sensor ?
