I am working on a new setup using the iGyro SRS and it is all SBUS. In the manual it states that the max current for the unit is 10amps. I plan on using the 2 digital-output ports as serial connections for the model. Would the 10amps be the expected max for servo draw through the unit? I was planning on connecting battery power to each of the 2 RXs or to the iGyro directly. Another option would be to connect the battery power to a more central (passive) device, like a sbus terminal box to distribute the power to the servos. Is this more advisable? I would like to use PowerBUS to BUS adapters for this role, but they appear to only accept MPX for input. I would have to make a dual-JR to MPX cable to connect the iGyro SRS DIG-OUT ports to the Power BUS MPX input port. Would this be more optimal & suggested? I'm trying to keep the plane as light as possible, this means no battery backer to save weight. I plan on using the new Sensor Switch v3 for power.
Thoughts - suggestions - comments?
A separate question which I know belongs in the PowerBus section. I will post it there and here as it is related to the topic above. Can the servo ports on the Powerbus to BUS adapter be used for serial input? I have not tested it, but I believe it would not work as each adapter has an amplifier, and this function (I think) takes place on the signal coming in on the MPX input port. That said, would the signal come into the sbus system on a servo port without amplification? Or would it be blocked/ dropped?
Thank you for the help and support.
