Whats the maxium amp draw posible for the HS-5645MG & HS-5745MG
well I run a castle bec in my semi with 3 digital servos and that is 10 amps. that said, a stalled servo can draw a lot more than most people realize. I know the owner of western robotics (the hercules bec.... ya he gives me flak for running castles hehe) and he was running tests on scopes and crap of all the bec's out there. I just ordered another bec for the mt. it's the only way to fly. dual 3s lipos and I can run 2 weekends without charging... I know it's not exactly what you were looking for but hope it helps anyway
with the castle, just stuff some shoe goo in the output end where the wires come out. a couple have had fried components when those wires bend back and forth a few times, let go and short.
I use a voltage regulator my self....6volt....I use a 8.4 volt stick 7cell battery 4600 mah ..
I can run all week end...My Tx Batterys will go dead before the car....
I think I paid like 20 buck usd for the voltage regulator......slawhammer
just after the amp draw for the HS-5645MG & HS-5745MG
i knew the SFL-10 Steering Servo was 4.1 amps
ive beenn told the HS-5745MG has a max amp draw of 4.8 amps, this makes sences if the none digital SFL-10 Steering Servo was 4.1 amps.
since ill be using two HS-5745MG for steering with a direct power loam and one HS-5745MG for throttle brake i should be around the max amps of 12 and only 4 amps max thru my rx from the HS-5645MG with a peak of 12 amps + or - some thru the battery i think thats fine for a sub c flat pack
I went to Hi-tec home site for the specs...servo..HS-5645MG Idle servo 3ma @6V
and running current 450ma.......The HS-5745MG Idle servo 3ma@6V and the running
current 450ma...........that's the best I could find out.......Slawhammer
just got told this from hitec
The 5745 with no load, running should see around 840mA, at stall, which would be maximum current draw is 4.8A.
The 5645 with no load, running should see 450mA, at stall you should see 2.5A
total max amps for my set up is 12.1 amps at stall
for my set up normal running amps 2.130 amps
