Just wondering if anyone has any experience with esk8 and ubecs
Check Hobby king if you want it cheap.
They are oos now but he should be able to tell you when they will be back
So can I use a separate cheap ubec with a low voltage second battery to power my receiver?
As long as the reciever is getting 5V and 3A it will work. So in theory I cant see why that wouldn’t work but I have never heard of it before.
UBEC is basically a step-down voltage regulator. Which you can have for $2 on ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Buck-Step-down-LM2596-Power-Converter-Module-DC-4-0-40-to-1-3-37V-LED-Voltmeter-/161476280982?hash=item2598bc8296:g:-kcAAOSwyDxXhIGH
And no receiver needs 3A -.-
Yes lol. My bad. That is what my ubec is rated for but diffinantly not needed
