    What is the 12v tolerance of the dev board?

    fnoop

      I would like to run the dev board on a drone, powered from a 3s LIPO battery.  A fully charged 3s battery is around 12.6v (13.05v for the newer LiHV batteries). Is this a safe voltage for the dev board, powered through the DC barrel connector?

      The trouble with running a BEC is that it will cut off as soon as it goes below 12v, which is almost immediately when the drone powers up.

      I would run a SEPIC regulator but I can't find a 12v one that supplies enough ampage.

      There's a good discussion here but it's inconclusive:
