Default Duralite regulator install question

I have the new heavy duty duralite regulator with the 16 gauge wire for my Trex 600N. The output from the regulator goes to a deans plug and then splits into two receiver plugs. My question is, do I have to use both receiver plugs, and if so, what port does the other receiver plug go into. I'm using a Spektrum AR 7000.

Also, what channel should I use a splitter for a Voltwatch2? I didn't even hook up the Aerospire MultiGov governor yet which requires another port for the RPM select feature.

I'm running out of ports here. Lol.

Thanks in advance.

First, throw the voltwatch in the trash.
You can use any available open rx slot for power. The only time you need the labeled power slot is to bind the rx.
You can use a Y-harness on any channel you choose and plug the second power lead there if you want to, however the single lead should be adequate.
Again, lose the voltwatch. If you are using the duralite setup, you need the loaded Voltmeter to accurately test the battery voltage.

Exactly what he said.

High current setups like 4x 8717's. The gauge of the wire limits the amount of current that can pass through it without burning up.
