Castle Creations 10 Amp Adjustable BEC
Castle Creations 10 Amp Adjustable BEC
Joshua Mooney - Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Tuesday, April 02, 2013
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 and turning the wheels left-right extremely fast (which is never). I am probably going to switch my set-up to the newer Castle pro BEC bc it doubles the amperage and should fix it altogether. All in all this is a very nice set up and works well in MOST applications. Nothing is perfect, and its very small and easy to install. I will also add that it seems to put out a lot of RF noise as my range in my transmitter has dropped significantly. Now I never drive it crazy far away from me, but if its more than 250-300ft away it sometimes cuts out. So mount it somewhere other than inside the receiver box. Enjoy.
