i bought this BEC for my Savage Flux HD. i connected caslte link and programmed setup at 7.2V for my HV Servo.
i checked voltage just in case before connecting receiver. but the out voltage is 7.6v. i tried serveral time. but voltage didn't change to what i wished.
so i change the strategy. i hooked up 3 cell lipo. then finally it came out with 7.2v.
i think the reliability is little low in despite of Castle's name value. i rather buy another one or expensive one like ccbec pro.

This works great in electric applications where the BEC in your ESC isn't powerful enough or if your using a crummy Spektrum receiver and get "brown out". However, it is NOT enough for a nitro car with 2 high-end servos, like Savox. I have and OFNA DM-1 Spec and just converted it to LIPO rx and run a Savox 1258tg and a Savox 1283sg and it browns out my Airtronics RX461 (telemetry) receiver. I put a LRP BEC stabilizer on it and that seemed to fix the issue as long as I am not holding full brake a[More…]

I bought this bec so I could run a 2s lipo receiver battery in my nitro truck. Needed something to step down the voltage and I liked that by using a bec I can adjust the voltage rather than using a fixed 6v voltage regulator. Checked the voltage with a volt meter and it is accurate. Was experiencing receiver brown outs due to my Savox steering servo but I added a capacitor and the problem went away. Great product, works well, priced right.

Perfect however you will need the castle link to get it to run at 7.2 v which will be good for servos

I am running the stock Traxxas 2075 servo in my 2008 50mph Slash. It works great in this application - servo is much faster & stronger with full voltage going to it. Set the voltage to 6v and it is 6v @ BEC's solder joints and 5.94v @ plug for the receiver. So the voltage loss is due to stock wire length. I don't know if it's suppose to be water resistant/proof, but it did take a complete submersion in the local creek with 2S 6.6Ah Li-Po attached. It was in the creek for about 1.5 minutes b[More…]

I don't recommend this bec for 6 cells lipo. this bec was blown up today.
