I was using a 5v hobbywing ubec- just the positive lead connected in place of the esc supply. All was working fine. I tried switching to a diatone 5v micro bec same setup. My servos went insane (fixed wing fc with inav).
I’m wondering if the ubec ground needs to be connected…the 1st case no gnd wire and functions, 2nd case no gnd goes berserk.
