I give up do you?

You've got to give us a little more info, like maybe what kind of large scale rc you have ;)

Also, since the Tone is extremely strong, you will need a Alu or Carbon RC Tray.
You will ALSO need a seperate battery pack for powering the Servo.
a 3s Lipo is fine. (Edit: MAX voltage is 8.4V)

Is this correct?:helpsmilie:
I heard using Lipo's is not a great idea in large scale because a Lipo gives its full potential till the very end and then just dropps off which could cause failsafe and signal loss problems. The NIMH and NICAD's Give less as they die but gives the user time to see the drain effect and charge before failsafe or signal loss.

you just need to be sure you have a quality regulator so nothing over 6v goes thru the system for the most part.

The Tonegawa needs a seperate power source for the Servo motor, that one can be anything from 6V to 12V(Edit: MAX is 8.4V), the higher, the better speed and the more power. It also needs to deliver something like 10 to 20Amps.




You still need another power source, at 6V or so, to deliver power to the RX, the other servos and the Tonegawa Electronics.

I am not 100% sure about the maximum voltage and the amps needed, but that should stand in the Tonegawa manual.

Dang, no wonder you guys rave about this servo - its so massive it needs its own power supply. Where do you stick the other battery?

It doesn't need it's own battery, providing your running a decent Rx pack (ie, 6V 3000mah)

All it needs is an extra feed from the Rx Battery, or (as I did) make up a lead that has the Rx supply and an extra wire for the servo supply.

It was a KPD MULTIPLEX radio tray to start with,then I machined it to take the tonegawa! Yes the servo plugs direct into reciver, but it does need a direct power supply to power it up!
