  • Hey Rich, this is what I would suggest doing. You can just get this barrel jack 9v battery adapter :) here is the link

    That way all you need to power the ardustation is the 9v battery.
  • I have read the ArduStation build instructions and the description on the store. I understand I CAN power it with a 2 or 3 cell LIPO battery. Can I get a standard voltage requirement for this unit? I would like to be able to power it using a standard 12v regulated power supply.

    I know a 3 cell Lipo is 11.1 volts does that mean 12 volts is too much?

    I'm placing the ArduStation in a box, with other components that will use the 12 volts. I'm hoping to not have to add an additional power supply just for the ArduStation. It would be a shame to have to build a voltage regulator just to go from 12v to 11.1v, but I can do it, just need to know BEFORE I connect 12v regulated voltage and blow the board.
  • newbie. please excuse the elementary questions that have been answered at one point or another.
    especially on links like this lol

  • I power it from a 2 cell (7.4V) 1000mAh lipo and it's fine.
  • From the Store (http://store.diydrones.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=DE-0001-01)

    "Can be powered with 2 and 3 cell LIPOS (diode protected and regulated)."

    Your 1.1v 3 cell Lipo should do fine.
  • Can I just grab a plug that fits, splice it to a 11.1v 3 cell Lipo? 12v battery? Just don't wanna fry it.

    Thanks,
    Toby
