I’m adding a Naked GoPro to my Orange Cube equipped copter.
I tried connecting 5V from my BEC to the Aux bus - to power both the camera and the shutter using the relay function of Aux6. 5V activates the shutter properly using the relay function of Aux6. Doing this, the signal pin passes about 3.5V when the relay closes.
Unfortunately, I discovered that 5V isn’t quite enough to properly power the Naked GoPro - it requires voltage from 2P to 6P lipo sources.
12V from my BEC will power the camera. Connecting my 12V source to the AUX bus seems like a possible solution - but I’m concerned that 12V is too much voltage for the AUX bus.
If 12V is too much for the AUX bus, I’ll have to run 12V from my BEC to power the camera, and put 5V on the AUX bus for the shutter.
Can someone please direct me to documentation that states the voltage limit for the AUX bus?
