Turnigy 5A SBEC is an advanced switching DC-DC regulator which will supply a constant 5A. It works with 2 - 7 Cell Lipoly pack and supplies a constant 5 or 6v to your receiver and is interference-free.
Can I use this bec with turnigy k-force 120A hv opto v2 5 - 12s brushless esc ? And im run cyclone power ir600 - 1500 - 50 1500kv brushless motor on edf jet 90mm with 6 turnigy tgy-9018MG metal gear servo.. on 6s lipo battery. . Please help me :'(
yes, you can use with that battery, but i would go for another choice, it looks it is a big plane, so, choose the 8A bec and also get a spare 2 cell battery (1500mah or similar) to power the bec, so, you will never get a blackout when pushing the esc to its limits and in case of low battery (flying battery) you will always be in control no matter what
hi all, i have an old speed controller (turnigy multistar 20amp) and it has a sbec in it(5.5v 4A). could i use this as a bec to power only my reciever in a nitro car. i can solder off the motor wires. the reciever im using is the hk-gt2. i am running 2 servos. help would be greatly appreciated.
Not so sure about the questions and answers :) Anyway this has been very good sbec for planes and little extraordinary projects! Tested also with 8s but of course not recommended.

I bought this back in January to use with my T-Rex 500, since I wanted more than 3 amps to use with a standard tail servo. Unfortunately, this BEC will not supply more than about 2.5 amps, not the advertised 5amps, without dropping voltage to less than 3 volts. I had several issues while flying, which I couldn't figure out until I hooked the BEC to an ampmeter and found out how few amps it actually supplies.I would give it 0 stars if I could.
The description of this switching BEC is misleading. It will supply 3A continuous, but the output voltage drops off at any current draw higher than 3 amps. The ripple voltage is also extremely high compared to others and what would be expected from a power supply of this nature. The heat created is also unacceptable. Power hungry servos like the HXT900 (at 500mA each) would stress this BEC if using 6 servos. The only good thing is the ability to handle 6 cells.

The BEC has almost 1V peak to peak switching noise at 2-3 Amps. At 5 Amps the output dropped to 3.5V. The Hextronic 3A BEC is much better. Glenn.
