This Small and lightweight UBEC features a High efficiency switch mode design providing better heat dissipation when compared to the linear voltage regulators. The shielded PCB design and output EMF coil makes helps provide a stable and low noise voltage output. This UBEC also features built-in reverse polarity protection.
Specs: Input: 6V-23V (2-5S Lipoly, 2-6S Li-Fe or 5-15S NiXX Battery Pack) Output: 6V/3A (Less than 50mV peak to peak voltage @ 2A) Dimension: 22.9mm x 20.3mm x 7.6mm (LxWxH) Weight: 9.1g (wires included)
00whynot I believe they need the red wire, since they apparently make a profound futile beeping noise and refuse to allow any power through them if they don't have their 5v power supply (since they're not BESCs).
Will this power 6 ESCs, a MultiWii and a receiver? I know the GPS uses >50mA, but I have no idea what the ESCs will use. These are the ESCs, does anybody know how much they draw?
I believe it will. The esc's should pull there power from the battery it's self. When you hook them up you have to remove the red wire from the centre of the connector on each esc. All they need is a signal wire and the ground wire.
Yes, just put a connector on the in wires to plug into any reciever channel. You should use a three wire connecter and put the servo signal wire on it too, so you can plug it all into channel 1, or whatever channel your servo is on. For the out wires on the bec, connect those directly to the servo and - wires.
Either or actually. You can use the same battery or a separate one. I don't know if they sell a splitter to meet your need, but if you have soldering skills, it is not that hard to make your own. I'm using mine to power a portable DVR that needs 6v, so I put a connector on it to mate with my 3s lipos.
i have one of these and was wondering if i can connect it to a 12volt car battery and use the output for my receiver. will that be okay?...has anyone tried anything like this?
reply will be appreciated
Nah You are half correct. You see you want to save on shipping but if the packaging didn't weigh 56grams it means when it arrives at your doorstep, the ubec would be nothing but just cribbles of circuit boards and FETS. Its all about Making the Right Decision.
I agree with pudytat. There needs to be some protective packaging (just got a turnigy esc 18a, included a piece of paper and esd protection - nothing more). There should a "small box" that you always need to order (and a medium, a big box for bigger items), weighing maybe 20g, and this item should be packed lighter in the system, so that you get maybe 3-5 in a 100g order.
Mates, there goes to show that you can't complain about the packing thats for sure. Making the right choice of not complain or whining in some cases might save you money spent on the product ! It's all about CHOICES ! Cheers.
Who cares what the shipping costs are,I'm glad to get the products at a reduced price. I dont have to spend money on fuel to go to my LHS etc to get them. Also, at HK you have the ability to find out more about the product and others experiences with that item, something you always dont get at your hobby shop "cause the fellow behind the counter only sees the $$$$ in the deal. Not that I have anything against the LHS fellow, but he is there to make money. I bet if you add up all the savings you have made buying at HK compared to LHS you would stop quibling about peanuts. Cheers from "THE MAN FROM THE LAND DOWN UNDER".
OK, cost at 3.50 shipping price with only 20 grams total shipping weight or 9.50 shipping cost with 65 grams shipping weight.
Why is it that all the other Hong Kong website offer free shipping on their items and HK doesn't???
Sure pudytat if you do not have the money to pay why shop at HobbyKing ? HobbyKing is the place for cheap products and cheap shipping.Anthony had worked hard getting deals and trying to keep shipping costs down and why is HobbyKing special because they take their products seriously.Now you are just paying for one little BEC and you are making such a fuss, why don't you just buy things in a large scale and save on shipping or go to your local hobby shop thats all.
"why don't you just buy things in a large scale and save on shipping".... You don't seem to get it do you. With inflated shipping weights, it makes the shipping cost even more expensive. Yes, I agree that there are cheap items here (a lot are cheap quality too). But when you add in the shipping, it is on par with more expensive sites or LHS. So if you order more, it is only going to cost you more with the added shipping costs (nothing saved in bulk). The tanks that they sell here are an example, they are almost half price, but their shipping is more than they are, putting the price even with sights with free shipping.
But talking about buying from other hongkong or china website, Do You trust them and do they trust you . The end game is not about the shipping or product cost, it is about the PRODUCT THAT YOU'VE BOUGHT LANDING WITHOUT DAMAGE AT YOUR DOORSTEP.So Mates, Making the right decision could bring SUCCESS but one wrong choice leads to a DOWNFALL.And you talking about "The tanks that they sell here are an example, they are almost half price, but their shipping is more than they are, putting the price even with sights with free shipping" , even though other sites offer free shipping , will the Product or in this case tanks arrive at your doorstep unharmed and glossy as new ? Make the right choice and Adapt to the right mindset mate.
The other sites ship with the exact same shipping company from HK, and in the states and use the same type of packaging. I have had parts shipped from Hobby King that were in nothing but a paper envelope before, but I was charged for 20 extra grams for shipping and there was no extra protection in the packaging at all. With your closed minded ranting, you are MISSING THE POINT. Unless you can answer the question that is asked, don't post. I asked a SIMPLE question "Why is the shipping weight 65 grams when the item only weighs 9.2 grams?" but you do nothing but rant about choices. If you want to rant, go to the forums.
Whoa dude you need a chill-pill mate alright back to the question: Why is the shipping weight 65 grams when the item only weighs 9.2 grams? My Answer: 9.1grams for the UBEC, 8 grams for the Envelope or 22grams for the Small box & 47.8grams for packing the UBEC in a nice glossy zip-tight bag(By Envelope) or 33.9grams for zip-tight bag and the protective packaging(By Parcel)
wHOA DUDE you seriously need a chill-pill mate. Maybe if you purchase one of these you may find out why it is just 65Grams please don't tell me that you are just gonna buy this product only and pay a small amount of money just for this product. Utilise your shipping by adding this to your cart HobbyKing's cart system Alerts you your leftover shipping weight and you could scroll down to find another product that fits into the shipping weight perfectly to fully utlise the shipping cost SIMPLE!
EVERYBODY..cool down..lets just wait anyone that bought this BEC and make review about the package..if the extra weight are really for the great package so its solve..but if the extra weight comes to nothing or at least cheap medicine plastic bag (like HK401B gyro) so you can figure it out by yourself hehehe..anyway, this BEC is value for money indeed, but lets wait for the review..
Nice, small, strong, cheap. Uses MP2307, you may find this chip in other modules as well. Can be easily modified to support a "low = off" input, you just need to open the shrink and add a wire. Voltage may be modified too, but you have to deal with 0603 SMDs... Excellent value for the price.
