I see the 5V power pin of BECs all are connected to the flight controller, but within the flight controller, is this registered as a 4 5V batteries in series or parallel? In series would not make sense since that would be 20V (assuming quadcopter) going into the flight controller.
In parallel makes more sense since that would be 5V and like 10+ amps going into the flight controller to power low voltage devices including camera equipment.
But I was told by someone that the 5V BEC pins are not connected parallel to each other since that would damage the BECs. But like, it has to be series or parallel right, one or the other?
I have a microcontroller I am using for flight controller and I was thinking of just hooking up all the 5V pins to a 5V power rail and the ground pins accordingly. I don't have 6 pins 5V input pins on the microcontroller as you would in a commercial flight controller (I think).
