  • No 

    You will brown out your APM. 

    APM is not intended to power Servos. Use a BEC for the power. Only connect signal wire of servos to the APM.

    • With jp1 removed the bec from the esc powers the output so It is the same as powering directly from the bec or am I missing something?
    • Yes, it's fine since you have the JP1 out.

    • Sounds okay to me. You probably want to power the output rail with only one esc (or use the cable from the 3DR PDB which provides 5V from one of the ESCs).
