Servo connection

It is definitely necessary to have a BEC on the rail for servo connection? where exactly a BEC should be plugged? thanks

If you need power supply on servo, you have to connect a BEC to the 5v servo rail.

Yes I need to connect servos to the pixhawk, so I was not sure if a BEC was required

Yes it’s required because it’s isolated from the rest.

Right thanks, what would be the best option for servo connection main out or aux out?

No difference between both

Can we plug a 2S battery directly on the servos rail ?

yes you can

Ok so im trying to run a rover with ESC for power and a servo for steering. ESC is plugged into main 2 and steering is main 1 i have a BEC plugged into main 5. i see the output in mission planner but i get no servo output or servo movement.
