Building Slick 580 105.5 - Receiver and Servos!!!

Hello,


I need some help with this:

Im building a Slick 580 105.5" from EF, and using 8 MKS HBL 380 servos, my doubt is if can use only one Futaba 7014Sb 14ch receiver for it all, with just a Fromeco Dougle Switch for 2 baterries 7,4 2s lipo??


Does the receiver will handle it all?

For safety you should consider a Powerbox, or something similar. I used two receivers and a Redundancy bus on my 95" Extra. See schematic below..

Your limiting factor will be the servo plugs. They are rated at 3A continous, with a 5A surge. The 14 ch Futaba Rx is more than up to the job.

I would do a Wolverine switch with more than 2 Rx plugs.

Most if not, all Rx busses are capable of 35A continous power draw, and nearly 50A in a surge.

If you said Spektrum, I would suggest the PowerSafe Rx. Simple and bulletproof.
