    Small but powerful powersupply for servos

    posted by LcNessie on 08/14/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    - Small, you can pretty much tuck it away in any corner. - Quite powerful, can handle a strong single servo with ease, good for 1/10th scale electric buggies. Will probably handle two strong servos as well. - Cheap as chips... Comparable items go for double...
    Cons:
    - It's a necessary evil... If only the internal BEC of the electronic speed controller was powerful enough, this UBEC wouldn't ...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Verry good BEC

    posted by Cereal on 07/12/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very stable UBEC, it works great and the output is stable even under high load. I'm using it in some hobby projects and its a great tool to have a stable output.
    Cons:
    - gets a bit hot under load - cables connected are a bit small, should be thikker - a better connector would be cool and handy ...

    Hobbywing 5V/6V 3A Switch-Mode Ultimate BEC (UBEC)

    posted by djarent on 05/07/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:
    The only con I can think of is that there's limited mounting facilities for the unit. The whole thing is enclosed in a plastic sleeve. Oh, yeah, and it's a good hobby shop price but, maybe a little expensive for a DX item.
    Cons:
    This small little DC/DC converter solves the power loss/heat problems associated with a resistor or series pass type voltage re...
