The HKPilot HV Power Module incorporates both a way to power your HKPilot and accessories as well as report battery voltage and current back to the HKPilot for logging and telemetry data. This can be viewed in the HKPilot's stored logs or live with a telemetry radio connection. All thru a single and tightly included 6-pin cable that directly matches the HKPilot's/APM/PX4 connector. The on-board switching regulator outputs 5.3V at a maximum of 2.25A, and can be used up to 45Volts (10S LiPo) and at a maximum of 90 amps. The Power Module is ready to use withXT60connectors pre-fitted, and shrink wrapped for protection.
Note:The Power Module is rated at 2.25 Amps to power the HKPilot, receiver and peripherals (GPS and Telemetry radio) ONLY. To power servos use anESCwith an adequate BEC or a standalone BEC plugged into the output bus, and remove jumper 1 to isolate the two power lines.
