    Hi guys, I am currently awaiting my DJI f550 which I am getting professionally built which I plan to use 4s batteries with. My worries however is that I will be running a zenmuse gcu, flytrex live which I will install myself and immersion vtx which is being installed for me, on the main board presumably. However I don't know how it will be connected until I take delivery. Im just a bit worried that since the voltage will be higher from a 4s battery do I need a voltage regulator or similar to run these peripherals of off? Or am i able to solder these directly to the main board when I receive it?

    Will these run fine on 14.8v?

    Thanks in advance!

    Why not ask the pro builder?

    Wouldn't he know more about your current and planned equipment?

    I have done. I assume he will already have taken this into account and he is supplying the vtx on the build. But in general will a voltage regulator be required? I am waiting for a reply from the builder tomorrow, but would like to hopefully set my mind at ease.
