    I have a question... can you plug the above battery directly to the FatShark TX or do you have to go through the power filter? The battery has the 3 prong balance charger lead and also a 2 prong power (red and black wire).

    Thanks,
    Eric

    i suggest you use the power filter board that came with the kit. better safe than sorry.

    I imagine it would work ok, but I would just plug the Fatshark Tx into the Aux power out, rather than run it thru an extra battery.
    the Tx uses less energy than it would take to keep that extra battery aloft.
