Hello,

 

Just curious, if anyone has any first hand experience flying the Alexa 65?  Is it the same power connector as a normal Alexa?  Other than it being wider and heavier are there any other challenges with flying it?  

 

Any info would be a great help!

 

Cheers

 

Kevin

Same connector. Everything the same , just wider and heavier as you stated.

The Alexa 65 does use more power than the other Alexa cameras, so it is best to run it at 24V.

I was convinced the Alexa 65 was the only one in the family that could not be fed with 12V .... Only 24V.    

Bueler ?

I believe you're correct, Frederic. I looked through my notes, and the power supply I made for IMAX for the Alexa 65 required 350W at 24V nominal (28V was the actual output.)
