so its still browning out when you disconnect 1 servo from the swash?

So with only 2 of the servos connected its still drawing enough current to brown out?

Wow

Very strange

Am I missing it, or have you tried a different iKon? Sure sounds like its satellite power bus is borked.

Maybe we should get together and try plugging your sats into my ikon and see if it happens on mine. That's the only thing left since other than the sats we have an identical setup.

Thats a good idea

i have a dead Spektrum sat that i have no idea what caused it.

Could be a very sensitive sat or a borked (no idea what that means??) power bus!

From the Urban dictionary:

borked
To have totally f****d something up. Usually by doing something stupid. Specifically used to describe technology that is broken.
Example 1....
Admin: I totally borked my machine installing Win XP SP2.

Example 2....

"I can't come over at the moment...my car is borked".


From the actual dictionary:

bork [bawrk]
verb (used with object)
to attack (a candidate or public figure) systematically, especially in the media.
Origin:
1988, Americanism; after Judge Robert H. Bork, whose appointment to the Supreme Court was blocked in 1987 after an extensive media campaign by his opponents

Being that you already tried different satellites; I'm thinking it is a "borked" iKon 3.3vdc voltage regulator.
