The Just Cuz Basic PD Board

Specifications Details
Material Raw PCB, unassembled
Compatibility XT30 connector family
Dimensions 32mm x 20mm x 1.6mm/ 1.26″ x 0.77″ x 0.6″ (unassembled)
Weight 2g / 0.07oz (unassembled), XT30U connectors add ~1g / 0.035oz each
Additional Tools Needed Soldering equipment, solder, flux, third hand
Quantity 1 board per package
Not Included XT30 connectors and wiring assemblies, battery
  • Two convenient plated slots sized for the Fingertech Mini Power Switch, or to run wires for your own switch/link.
  • Switch/link connection connects battery positive to all other connector positive terminals, VBat pin, and the corresponding copper pad underneath. Must be shorted with 18AWG or larger wire for testing without a switch/link
  • Massive copper pads on the underside for increased current-carrying and heat dissipation1
  • Convenient mounting points for up to four XT30 or XT30U connectors: battery, weapon, and two drive sides (I recommend using Male XT30 for Battery and Female XT30 for others on the board)
  • Clearly marked orientation for connectors to avoid wrong polarity ruining your parts
  • Use any connector or combination of direct soldering and connectors
  • Can connect as many other devices as you wish to the copper pads under the board – no need to use just four!
  • Convenient 3-pin header location for connecting a BEC or battery voltage tolerant receiver2 with a standard servo plug [connect red + and black (- or G) wires only] (pins not included)
  • No need for a messy wire ‘squid’ to wire all your ESCs!
  • Convenient M2 mounting screw holes to hold down the board or attach a cover
  • Clear labels for all components and pins for easy assembly and troubleshooting

1 WARNING: The bottom of the board has exposed copper regions that, if in contact with a conductive surface, can short circuit. Do not secure this board directly to a conductive metal plate, and ensure that an insulative spacer (electrical tape, hot glue, plastic cover) is used before connecting a battery if resting on a conductive surface. These regions are exposed to allow easy soldering to the underside of the board, but they are separated for a reason!

2Some receivers such as the Flysky FS2A and iA6B can take up to a 2S lipo voltage (8V) directly. Most however will require a BEC to regulate the battery voltage down to 5V. Note that connecting a receiver + pin (typ. red wire) to a voltage higher than its rating may damage it, and ItGresa Robotics and Just ‘Cuz Robotics are not responsible for damages caused by improper use or user error.
