Fnoop replied to Ryan's discussion Powering companion computer from same battery as motors.
"'It depends', mostly on what voltage main battery you're using.  If you're using a 4s or more, then it's pretty easy, you just run the joule off a standard 3-4A 12v BEC.  If you're using a 3s, the joule dev…"

"@xemone that's a really neat PDB.  You should have no problem going from regulated 5v output straight to the IO gnd/vin pins.  If you want to be paranoid you can go in through the usb as it provides extra protection and polyfuse, but…"

Fnoop replied to mark bellncula's discussion Pixhawk DJI ESC Issue
"@Troy Apart from the extra cost (which sucks) getting bigger generic ESCs will give you a good solution.  Just a quick warning if the bigger drone you're thinking of in the future will have low kv motors, then pick your new ESCs really…"
