    has anyone used the aux power cables that come stock in the FC40 with multiple devices. I added a JST and 3 way splitter to connect gimbal, FPV transmitter and Flytrex. The wire gauge is small so wondered if anyone has seen issues.
    I noticed the other day when I adjusted camera pitch on Walkera 3D gimbal, the bird dropped a few feet. I repeated this a could times. Battery was around 11.7V.

    I have got a gimbal and 600mw transmitter run thru the cable. No issues at all.
