    Two savox sw-1210sg

    Hi! I ordered two savox sw-1210sg and one cc 10 amp BEC. I just realised that those two servos take 12 amp atleast and the BEC is only on 10. I will connect the BEC to a mmx ESC. What should I do? Note: I donít know a lot about rc vehicles and how they work.

    Where do you see that? What you want is volts. Just looked at the technical specs of those and no where did I see they require 12amps

    I am pretty sure it takes 6 amp at 6v.

    Look at the stall current, that is the max amps the servo will draw.
    6,000ma@6v= 6amps @ 6v.
    7,400ma@7.4v=7.4amps @ 7.4v
    1,000ma = 1amp

    If you are running two, you would need to double the amount.
    2 servos would need twice the single servo amount.

    I guess I’ll just buy a cc BEC 2.0 instead.

    Didn't know you doubled the amps, interesting. More of a reason to run a single servo lol

    I would connect the BEC directly to the servos, bypassing the ESC. This way the ESC's BEC would power everything else (mini servos,lights) and the external BEC would only need to power your servos.

    You might be ok doing it this way. It's a guess if you need that many amps. The servo stall amps ratings is the max it could draw.
