Hi, on my pixhawk quadcopter project, i received a broken power module, and i was wondering, is it possible to power the pixhawk using a BEC inside the ESC in the servo rail by itself? And if so, what would be the risks without a zener diode connected? I read that it prevents the pixhawk from rebooting, but are there other risks? I really don’t want to fry the pixhawk.
My setup doesn’t have any servo motors puling current from the servo rail.
If this is not a safe way to power the pixhawk, are there other ways without using a power module?
