    Hi all,

    Just wondering if it would be possible to power my FPV reciever and FPV monitor by soldering the power to the battery in the remote? They are currently powered from a phantom 1 style battery with a splitter.

    You dont say what receiver, or monitor or remote you are using, but I would think this unlikely.

    Step 1 is to get the spec for your monitor and your Rx and find out the current and voltage requirements.

    If you are using the new remote, I think the lipo is 2000mah/3.7v, and I read that the remote draws 120ma (corrections welcome).
