Has any one used one of these yet? I have read threads about them but not one using one yet. I need a BEC soon and Mike is "out of stock" with no reply yet of when he will get some in. (Mikes super busy that why I have not gotten a reply yet.) It looks good, priced right and I like my MM already. Any thoughts?
Seems to me that the unit is mainly aimed at crawlers, which don't use super-high voltage setups (hence the massive amp rating for multiple servos). From what I've heard tho, it's a hardy little thing which does its job well.
i just found out that castle is behind on all of their products (i'm getting a 2nd MM esc for my crawler, as well as the BEC for my SM) and should be in at the end of the month. i'm not holding my breath though...
I got mine from the LHS and it works great so far. I did some testing with the stock voltage setting at 5.1v and took it up to 6.5 amps and the voltage drooped down to 4.5v with 18.6v input. The unit from my calculations was still something like 91% efficient. My LHS has a castle link for customers so I had them boost it up to 6.4v for my emaxx, I am running 3 fans and 144oz servo.
THE ONLY THINK I DON'T LIKE: is their thin output wire, it like 24-26ga and 1 foot long. Most of that voltage loss at 6.5 amps is probably in the wire.
