FROM CASTLE CREATIONS:
Castle Creations is pleased to announce the production of the CC BEC switching regulator. This product offers high power, small size and incredible flexibility to all who wish to power their receivers and servos directly with the motor batteries. The CC BEC takes input voltage up to 25 volts (6S) and steps it down to a user-selectable voltage between 4.8 and 9 volts. The default setting is 5.1 volts, but the voltage may be changed in 1/10th volt increments using Castle Link (sold separately). Castle has taken great care to minimize RF interference.
The CC BEC is designed to offer up to 10 amps peak current for 30 seconds, up to 7 amps continuous current at inputs under 12 volts, and 5 amps continuous current with inputs under 25 volts. Thats gobs of power for almost any number of servos and the possibilities of employing this product anywhere a stable voltage is required from a battery source are endless. Ever wanted to run the newer servos that are capable of 8 or 9 volt inputs? Now you can! RC CAR racers and 3D / Pattern guys will love the ability to tune their servo voltage to increase control power and response of their mounts.
Just 1.2 by 0.6 by 0.4 (30mm x 15mm x 10mm), and weighing only 0.4 ounces (11 grams), the CC BEC sets the standard for power to weight ratio in this category. CC BEC offers great opportunities for weight reduction in smaller models. Replace a 4.8 volt AA pack and save up to 3 ounces!
The technical merits are obvious, but the price is incredible. CC BEC offers a street price of $21.99! At that price and weight, pilots can use several for critical redundancy and no voltage drop in large aerobats with the latest high current servos.
CC BEC is now shipping. Ask for them at your local hobby store!
