"Hi Everybody, I got this HK 10s Power module, but it seems to be not working. I´m running it on a 6S lipo and can´t get more than 4.6 volts on the regulated output, with no load on it. Shouldn´t it give 5.3 volts? Patrick"

"In retrospect, yes I think my xt60 connectors were backwards because I based my new plugs on where the old ones were, not looking at the end which the 6 wire connector comes out of which is a much more reliable indicator. I'm using Pixhawk/apm…"

"Update: problem found. The good news is that the HK power  module can be hooked up backwards (input on the output side, output on the input side) and still not blow up.  The bad news is that it doesn't read current flowing through it…"

I'm running a Pixhawk with the 10s power module from HK and can't seem to get a current reading.I've tried multiple combinations of settings in MP and can get a reasonably accurate voltage reading but nothing at all on current for some reason.  Tried swapping cables out and no dice.  I did try flipping the pins in the parameters for config for voltage and…See More

Fly Away twice today during mission, need help with analysis

"Great work Paul! Did you 3D print this off using your own printer? How did you incorporate the OTG cable with the radio? Is it a simple USB interface or did you do some more hacking?"
