This small and lightweight UBEC features a high efficiency switching mode BEC, providing better heat dissipation when compared to linear voltage regulation. The shielded PCB design and output EMF coil provide a stable, low noise voltage output. The HKU5 also features built-in reverse polarity protection.
Well I will set a glow engine (ASP S52A) airplane with 5 servos (4xMG-14 plus one HXT900) and a Turnigy Light System, all feeded by a Turnigy nano-tech 2s1700mAh20C LiFePo4 bat. My Rx is Tactic TR625 which has an input power limit of 6.0V. What is my best choice: to swap that LiFePo4 bat by a 2S LiPo and add this U5Pro UBEC or to swap that Rx by a Tactic TR825 which has 8.4V as input power limit keeping a LiFePo4 bat?
Purchased three of these for ignition voltage regulator duty in my large scale gas planes, when paired up with the turnigy 2100 Lipo receiver pack, you can run an engine all day versus the 4 cell NiMH packs. Working great in my planes, the 3A version works great too, but is a little longer and slightly heavier, but cost less. Next order, I will order more for spares for future projects.
