Scorpion Back Up Guard
Stock Status:In Stock
The Scorpion Backup Guard is a tiny, lightweight, self contained, Stand-by Power System for RC Helicopters and Aircraft. It works just like a UPS back-up power supply does to keep your computer running during a power outage. In the event of a failure of your BEC circuit in your speed controller, or loss of power from your on-board battery pack, the Backup Guard kick in and provides 5 volt power to your radio receiver and servos so you can autorotate your helicopter, or dead stick your airplane, down to a safe controlled landing.
The Scorpion Backup Guard is a completely self-contained Li-Po battery and BEC circuit in one! It features a built-in 2-cell 500mah Li-Po battery, coupled with a linear 5 volt 10 amp BEC circuit and special logic circuitry that turns it on only when it is needed. The output of the Backup Guard uses a standard JR style servo plug, and the combination Charge plug/Balance port is a standard JST-XHR style connector, so the battery can be charged and balanced with any standard Li-Po charger. Best of all, the Backup Guard is very easy to use. It simply plugs into the battery port, or any unused channel on your radio receiver, and it is ready to go. Before each flight, simply flip the switch on the Backup Guard and your model is protected. A small red LED lights up to let you know the Backup Guard is armed and ready to go.
As long as your normal flight battery or BEC system puts out more than 5.0 volts, the Backup Guard waits in the stand-by mode monitoring your radio receiver voltage level. If the receiver voltage ever drops below 5.0 volts, the Backup Guard instantly switches on and restores power to your radio gear to prevent loss of control or those annoying "Brown-outs". With up to 10 amps of current available to power your radio gear, the Back-up Guard has enough power to drive all of your servos through a Brown-out event, or for a safe controlled landing in the event of a total failure of your ESC or normal receiver battery system. Think of it as an "Insurance Policy" against unnecessary and avoidable crashes!
