Hi there,

I ordered an alien frame (it's actually a copy but doesn't really matter), on the pdb that comes with the frame there's no voltage regulator so I was wondering if I could power the naze32 rev6 directly from a 4s battery, will it work?

It will "work" but all the 5V pads will output 4S voltage instead of 5V, so you will have to power any 5V electronics from a polalu.

Thank you for your answer!

So what do you suggest to do? Buying a voltage regulator or move to another flight controller? If so which one?

On my Martian, I tossed the included PDB and used a Matek HUBOSD. It has 12V and 5V outs, and an OSD for showing battery current and voltage in the Goggles.
