TBH if i was to do it, i would have used the leaded solder, i am very impatient.

i resemble that remark. however we have irons that melt it in nanoseconds, they are the metcal irons try circa $1000 an iron and $100 a tip !!! nah i will spend my cash on lipos after all i spent 7 years soldering and dont do it unless i have to. my V2 is humming away nicely, love the funky sounds on boot up. am i the only one who gets nervous when soldering the connectors on the li-pos?

long live the MMM

i tryed a set of 4mm's an crap is the tinned solder hard to melt, i had a friend try to put on the 4mm's and no luck, my 80-120watt gun needed a new tip, try or 30mins..

ill just get some 6mm's or 6.5mm's and have the hobby shop down the road put them on, as it probley only takes the 5mis..

im going to use 2 screews to hold down my MMM to my RCPD top plate
and also use 2 zipties just incase...

My MMMv2.0 BEC outputs 6.05v. I assume they changed the bec from 5.5 to 6.0v when they designed the v2?

6.05 volt unloaded, voltage may drop under load even if there is a regulation

Patrick, your pm box is full.

Anyway, here's my message.

The replacement V2 which was shipped on Aug 28 and received last Friday, Sep 5th is dead. I started a thread about it under CC forum.

http://www.rc-monster.com/forum/showthread.php?t=14844

Anyway, I want to know if it's okay with you to do the BrianG mod and run it with my rx pack without voiding the warranty if something worse will happen. I know some forum members were given the go-ahead to do the mod without voiding the warranty since the MMM is not working naymore.

My V2 puts out 6.0v and my V1 put out 5.42v. I definitly think it has been changed from the origianal 5.5V standard.


I can't decide if its more fun
to make it...
or break it...

Yep , i put the volt meter to my v2 MMM and im seeing 6.0v on the MMM's bec...

With my MMM plugged in & my Futaba Digital S9351 servo plugged into my Futaba 2.4Gh 6ch Rx i am seeing 6v-5.95v, an when turning the steering servo to full lock(left or right), im seeing 6v-5.9v...

Now just for 0.2-0.5sec it drops to 5.8-5.75v when turning, but thats when the servo first moves under a Heavy load / my hand pushing down on the frontend an holding it down, but after 0.2-0.5sec it goes right back up too 5.8v-5.9v even while still loaded up / me pushing down on the frontend....

So the lowwest the new v2 MMM's bec drops is 5.75v, Under a Heavy Load.

I might have to get a MMMv2 and test the BEC like some of the other tests I do. Curious about efficiency, noise, etc...
