I’m designing my electronics circuit right now and am looking at the adjustable UBEC that everyone uses.
I know its ‘rated’ at 12s, but is it reliable at 12s? or are you guys running it off of a single lipo at 4s or 6s?
Our ubec has been working just fine. Did a reverse polarity connection once, that killed it. Got a new one, still running it directly on 12s.
@Climbineer pointed me to these: https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/CUI-Inc/V7805W-500R . They work great with my 12S and support up to 72V. Been using 2 of these for a while now, one in my esc box for the receiver, one in the battery box for my amp meter.
That looks super simple and durable. how do you wire that in exactly Pacificmeister? Could you show photos or a diagram?
Thats a really neat product. Very simple.
Side question. Is there any issue with running the RC received as well as a diaphragm pump off of one adjustible UBEC?
Both would run at 5v, the pump would only draw at most 500mA
