Hi all and happy new year.
I just get a powerbox evolution and planning to connect some HSB-9380TH hitec servos on it.
As I see those servos coming with an extra circuit called PAD. Do I need to use this circuit for the connection to the powerbox or I can connect the servo direct without the PAD? This is what HITEC says about this circuit (((While compatible with most radio control devices, the regenerative braking feature of the HSB-9XXX series servos may cause a problem if the device cannot accept a backflow of current. The types of devices that cannot accept this backflow are: Voltage Regulators, Power Safe Receivers and certain BEC circuits whether stand alone or integrated within an Electronic Speed Control. Check with the manufacturer or the Hitec website for a list of compatible models. If your device cannot accept a current backflow, then you must install a PAD (Power Absorbing Device - Hitec PN# 55756) as described in this manual. A PAD is included with every Hitec brushless servo))).
you need the PAD when using this servos. But better: take another servo...
Is to late. I have already order them. But why you sagest something else ? Is it something wrong with these servos?
