Use of the power module on RC HELI with 2x 12S battery

Hi guys,
I write to ask you a detail.

I’m building a new Helicopter that will use 2x 12S battery connected in parallel.
In the old version I was connecting the batteries in parallel, and then the main cable was going to the current sensor.
With the power module i would like to connect the 2 batteries separately into Battery IN 1 & 2, but I have some questions:

  • Will the power module drain the same power from the 2 batteries?
  • Will the power module merge the current measured from both batteries into a single data and send it to the Pixhawk3 pro?

I just don’t want to have it like take the power from only one battery and keep the second as backup.

Thanks for your help
