thanks a lot!

so, if the input voltage is 5.5V, the complete system will run at 5.5V, right?
Is there any safety option if i use the higher voltage wicht provides the ATmega from damage?

Hey there

I'm new here - "hello to all". The Arduino Mega 2560 is my new toy, so I'll try some funny things with it.
My first Project will be the stabilisation of my Cablecam.

It's already quite stable but that tiny little thing witch makes it 100% usefull isn't developped.
So I bought as told the Mega2560 to set this up.
My Problem is now, that from the motordriver (BEC port comes 5.5V.
Can I just connect to the VIN Pin and forgett about that half voltage or shuld I connect it with the normal input port.
Witch range of input voltage can Arduino support?
