Power me UP Mr. Scotty! – FT-817ND power cabling

Here is my power cable setup for 817, in the picture missing 5000mah 4S lipo which power out 16.7V max so need voltage regulator. Starting from down to up:

 

#1 plug to rig 

#2 fuse cable

#3 wattmeter

#4 12VDC ubec (voltage regulator)

 

Connectors are xt60 which can handle atleast up to 65A continuous! All the special parts are from RC-hobby and are much cheaper than any HAM spesified part-sellers. I have bought all my stuff from http://www.hobbyking.com.  As you can see the cables are made as “modules” so you can decide will you run the cable with wattmeter, ubec, or even fuse.  If any questions im happy to answer 🙂
