    49dimes Damn I'm hungry

  2. If it were me . 6014hs with smartfly turbo reg with two futaba leads off of each out put for battery power, should still leave 11 slots for servos if I remember right. If your using a Futaba 8fg 12fg,12z, 14mz, 14 SG, or 18mz. You can match the servos in the radio. Eliminating the need for matchboxes.

    When i bought my 3.3 meter yak it had a 14 channel futaba receiver fed by two sahara regulators via a wolverine switch. The setup had 10 flights on it, all of the wiring upstream of the receiver was pretty crispy. It wouldnt have gone too many more flights without a serious problem. It had 12 servos. I swapped it out for a powersafe and upgraded to 12 ga wire on the battery leads. I think the futaba receivers can handle the current, but you need to provide some additional y's to get the power distributed as 1-2 servo connectors with power into the receiver are not up to the task and the incoming side is the weak link.

    I use a single Futaba 14 channel receiver with the Smart-Fly Micro Expander. This a nice compact unit that plugs directly into the receiver with heavy gauge wire to the battery plugs.
    This set up can be used with LiIons or LiPos powering HV servos.
    I also use the Tech-Aero IBEC which eliminates the ignition battery.
