so i am wondering i want to use this for the new hercules 500 quad from here rc timmer 2830-8 1300 kv motors and 30 amp bleu hobbyking escs flashed with simon k firmware been on a tri flown 20 times at most still great motors and escs. will this board take that load and also my leds about 50 or so?
I'd be pretty cagey about doing that. I am using one of these for a quadcopter using four 25A ESCs but I soldered in a couple of heavy copper wire loops that connected with the four sets of sockets. It's a bit ugly but it is certainly a lot better than anything I could have come up with if I had not used the Power distribution board in the first place. I have had no problems with this scheme overloading.
Yes, no problems. And with one less ESC attached, it'll handle even more.
Good product though quite heavy. Nice when you exchange your escs one in a while to other quads because you dont have to de-solder the leads from normal power distr boards. To be used with larger quads, not for mini/micro quads. I will mod mine with XT60 connectors instead of the 3.5mm bullits as I use these as a standard with escs. I like the optional LED-outlet.
Good board, simplifies the connection of ESCs, however for me, I preferred to desolder the connectors of 3.5 mm and weld Nylon T-Female Connectors. Can always extra welding points empty, for example a Bec.
