S.Bus FAQ

Is it possible to mix S.BUS Servos and regular servos on the same receiver using the S-Bus data port and regular Futaba connection ports?

Yes, this is possible. As long as you watch what servo channel you plug these into. The number of the servos can increase, but the number of the operational channels cannot increase. eg. If an S-BUS servo is set to CH1 and the regular servo is connected to your CH1 port, these would be the same.

Also, pay attention to the current consumption of the servos. There could be a voltage drop due to the number of servos used and the length of your extensions or cables.

Can we expect the same resolution on all channels using your new S-BUS technology?

Yes, you can. However, the resolution depends on the transmitter being used. eg; The stick operation is the full resolution, however, the side-levers have less resolution than the sticks.

Is there a significant delay when the serial data stream needs to go through 20+ servos?

No, there is not. The S-Bus network is limited to 18 servos. If you need more than 18 servos, you would need to use a signal buffer circuit. Also, pay attention to the current consumption of the servos. There could be a voltage drop due to the number of servos used and the length of your extensions or cables.

Is the receivers resolution in any way affected by the number of channels receiving data simultaneously or the number of servos used?

No. it is not. The resolution of the S-Bus receiver is independent of the number of channels receiving data or the number of servos being used.

I did not find the answer to my question here. How do I get further assistance?
