Recommended Posts

I haven't tried it, but there's nothing theoretically wrong with doing so. It will obviously require a pretty large box though. As for the balance leads, you could use a parallel harness like this: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__27077__JST_XH_Parallel_Balance_Lead_3S_250mm_2xJST_XH_.html Or if space is a concern you could just splice the individual wires from the balance taps together directly. Just be extra careful you match the wires correctly to avoid a short.
