Hexacopter, all 6 esc's DO NOT have a BEC on them so I need to power the output side of the board. I am using the power module. 

So can I just use the JP jumper to power the output side, or do I need an external BEC to power it?

I will not be using any servos on the output side.

    @ Jake,

    If you do not intend to connect any servos or other power consuming components to the APM's servo output bus and the ESCs are being powered by the battery, why do you need to power the APM's servo output bus?

    • I had thought you needed power there to power the ESC signal. Sounds like I was mistaken. Thanks!
