Default CC Bec Pro Connections

Hi,

I'm installing an SK540 on my 700e using satelites plugged into the satelite port. The ESC is a YEP 120 which is opto and I'm using a CC Bec Pro for RX power.

The BEC has two wires and I want to use both to increase the available power into the SK540, I assume I can plug one of them into the unused swash channel but where should the other one go? I'm going to be using an RPM sensor plugged into IO-C so is it safe to plug the second BEC wire into either IO-B or EX-LED?

Thanks for your help,

Brett

I got about the same setup on my Fusion50, so my output1 from CcBecPro is plugged into IO-B, output2 is in SW-A and Hobbywing RPM sensor is plugged into IO-C. No problems so far!

I recall reading you can use any port EXCEPT Ex-LED

Another option would be to do a Y connector to one of your servos and attach one of the power leads into a port of the Y connector.

Yes you have it right, any port but the led out. I have 2 of these sk540, great value and just work out the box. Don't forget to lower the gov gain to 30 for elecy.
