    Default Can I do this?

    Ok so I have an alphapix16 both banks running on the same PSU. My question is I have 2 props near each other and I want to use an 18awg 5 core wire. One prop is on back A and the other is on bank B. Can they share the same ground wire? Data and power both from the separate banks just shared ground.

    The ground wire needs to be able to carry the sum of the currents in the two power leads.
