How do I connect a 11.1V Lipo to my NAVIO2?

I’m building a quadcopter with a Navio2 controller, and currently plan on buying a 14000mAh 11.1V lipo to power my drone. Is there any way I can power my navio2 with it, as its clearly well above the recommended power range of 4.8-5.3V?


Navio 2 “Power Module” is one solution.

Power module, like Marc said. It’ll let you monitor your voltage, consumption, etc which is critical to have if you don’t have anything else monitoring that in your build.

A BEC isn’t a bad thing to have running power to your rails for redundancy and being able to power other components, either. Ex:


Thanks. I was going to go for a LM7805 regulator to reduce the voltage, but this seems easier to connect.

Yeah, and that type of UBEC will take care of battery ripple, servo/esc ripple, RF reduction, and a variety of other things so they don’t work their way around your VTX/etc.
