X-Port power & motor ripple...

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am powering my wireless HK cam from my aerobirds X-Port. The cam works fine but I do get interferance from power ripples, with the motor on.

Whats the easiest way to suppress this ripple, or should I simply use a seperate power pack.

Thanks.

I would go with a seperate power pack as you could end up with as much weight by adding filters. If you dont mind playing you can give it a try, you may save a tiny bit a the end of the day.

I vote for a separate lightweight pack too. However, if your wireless gear is rated at 5V then a Low Drop Out VReg IC, some power filtering, and luck, just might work out. Frankly, it will not be a slam dunk if you go this route. And as mentioned, practical weight savings would probably not be achieved.
