The Scorpion backup guard should give you a voltage stabilization in flight and a backup power source for a possible BEC failure.



It is able to improve the voltage in normal use - but having a look at the peaks we'll notice its limits.

The RC voltage drops down of about 4 Volts here. The current draw grows up to 15 A. This combination seem to work well on the field but having a look at our scope we will notice that the rest voltage of 4,2 V is a bit low.


If you unplug the WR BEC and test the guard function, you have a possible working heli (Voltage drops down from 5 to 3V in a direction change) but event log entries:

This backup isn't safe. 5 Amps are far too less for HV servos in a 800 machine ...
