can handle 80a???
 12Franz 1 points
Hello. It should be able to do that without any real issues. I also assume that you won´*t draw 80 amps continously, so it will be all right. (The product description also rates the MAX output at 4*20A=80A *) )
 anikeev 1509 points
It can handle up to 20A per each output, so if you use 4 outputs it will handle up to 80A total, but not each output.

XT60 connector is limmiting you on 60 amps continuous current, however will will handle 80 apm peaks with no problem.

Hey! Probably a stupid question as I'm new to all this, but here goes! I have 4 LEDs I'd like to put on my quad, and was wondering if I could use the JST pins? I need 5V for the LEDs, and my battery is a 3S. Does the JST pin have the same voltage as the battery or is it something else? Thanks! :)
 anikeev 1509 points
Hi Simon. Yes, JST connector have same voltage. So you can NOT connect LEDs to JST directly. If your quad have ESC with internal BEC, you can get 5V from ESC (red wire is positive 5 volts, black is negative).

hi simon, add a resistor (cannot use normal ones, u will fry them, use high amperage resistors to do it, calculater resistor value using this formula: batt voltage-led voltage/amps required by led=required value

Hi, I would like to use 4x 3525-850Kv 14 Pole motors (19A in working current and 23A in max current) with 4x ESC 30 A. Are this power distribution the god one? If not, which power distribution can I use for 30 A? I don't found in the HK website Thanks a lot.
 anikeev 1509 points
Power distribution boards are designed for small copters. If your motor takes more than 20A in peak - you should use presoldered wires or you can solder it by yourself. You can find proper wires already soldered in "multirotors and parts ** electronics" section.
 anikeev 1509 points
This product do the same - but with wires: 015000196-0. It's on a backorder so you need to wait a while, or you can solder it if you can.

What's the size of the board?
 anikeev 1509 points
it's square 50x50mm. Holes located at square 45x45mm.

ah..ok..i add more two motors and i solder wire to connectors by my self.. i forgot to mension to add solder.. thanks
 anikeev 1509 points
You can solder two extra pair of wires to battery input on this board. Don't solder extra pairs to existing outputs. because each of it is designed for 20A, and your extra load will be 3 times 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.

Simple and convinient board fo power distribution on quad copters with 4 speed controllers.

Soldered connectors (3,5mm) are exposed do short circuit if you don´t protect them with some hot gun or epoxy glue.

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.

Good power board. It aligns perfectly with HK control board. See my quad under construction in files sections.
