Split 5v BEC line to power several peripherals

Hi all.I am putting together a fixed wing UAV with a Pixhawk 2.1 flight controller, four 9-gram servos, dragonlink rx, RFD900 telemetry, and optional FPV gear. I use a 40A ESC with a built in 4A (S)BEC. It is advised to power the RFD900-radio directly from a BEC rather than from the flight controller.Now I wonder if I can split the 5v line from the built in BEC so that one side goes to the flight controller (powering the servos and dragonlink rx) and the other side goes to the RFD900 radio?…See More

Here GPS weight - case or not

Hi allI am putting together a Mini Talon UAV with the Pixhawk 2.1 flight controller and the Here GPS. My build ends up being a bit heavy, so I am trying to remove weight where possible.In this regard I noticed that the weight of the Here GPS is quite high, around 48 grams. The plastic case alone accounts for 19 grams. I have searched for info on how sensible these GPS's are to scratches etc without any clear conclusions. Do any of you have an opinion on this: will it cause problems to remove…See More

"Hi I am also curious about powering the RFD900 externally or from the flight controller. It would be simpler to power the radio from the flight controller, so this is my preferred solution. Is it not recommended to do so because you risk to damage…"

"Thanks a lot for your input. I have decided to go for the slightly larger mini talon, and modify it to make the v-tail removable."

Marc Dornan replied to Boas61's discussion Nano Talon or similar plane, with Pixhawk - is it possible?
"You can easily fit a Pixracer. A 200g camera will make this plane heavy. It will fly. This is not a good mapping platform for serious applications. It will be knocked around in the wind. Too small. "

"Pixhawk fits in the underneath bay perfectly but then you can't put downward facing payload.  It will fix in the nose bay fine but makes it a bit difficult to balance the CoG with the battery. You'd be much better off with a pixracer…"

"yes it possible, but actually i used apm mini for my nano talon if you insist want to using a pixhawk i guess it still fit let video describe for you :) (sorry for long time of durations) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYeh_mQA4tE"

"Hi. Thanks for sharing your experiences. I want to ask if the wings can be detached from the body of the plane, for easier transport? I am looking for a fixed wing UAV platform that can be carried around when traveling. Thanks in advance Andreas"

Nano Talon or similar plane, with Pixhawk - is it possible?

Hi allI am looking for a fixed wing UAV for mapping purposes. It must be able to carry a compact downward looking sensor (dimensions: 10x6x3 cm, weight: 200 g.) and a Pixhawk flight controller.I will be traveling with the UAV, and therefore I need to be able to detach the wings and preferably the tail fins. The Nano Talon from ZOHD seems like a really nice option, however I can't find detailed dimensions of the internals of this plane.If any of you have experience with this plane, do you think…See More
