    Hi Guys,

    are there any issues known, using the ALTA with AS150 Anti Spark connectors? In the past I had some trouble with Anti Spark connectors and the DJI S1000. So I am a little bit afraid of using them :)

    I've not heard of any issues, Patrick. What kind of issues occurred with the DJI S1000?

    Cheers

    Had some issues with the IMU while booting. Could not start the Motors or sometimes only 4 started to spin.

    Another thing. What do you think about the EC5 connectors? We always used the AS150 without anti spark. But I don´t like them. Are the EC5 enough? EC5 handles 130amp current, the AS150 150amp.

    I've standardized on EC5 connectors for multi-rotor and fixed wing unmanned aircraft and have not had any issues with them, especially when using 6S (the increased voltage means reduced current).
