DC-DC Switching VReg Project for Wireless AV

Recommended Posts

New RC-CAM Project is now online!

"Volts for Dolts" is a Voltage Regulator primer that offers information on the basic VReg technologies. Included are the construction details to a very efficient DC-DC Switching regulator.

It is perfect for powering your 5V Video Tx and camera. It accepts 6VDC to 25VDC on its input and it efficiently delivers 5.0V at up to 1.25 amps. It's great for LiPO powered applications. Weight is under 10 grams too. And guess what -- it costs less than $10! No special skills are needed to build it either.

It's all here: http://www.rc-cam.com/dc-dc.htm

Anyone that has utilized the DC-DC switcher, as featured in the project, are welcome to post a photo and description on how you used it. It would be interesting to see it utilized in your application.

Just got mine from Brown today...

Will probably begin surgery on the weekend and have it integrated into a 600mw tx/rx setup by then.

Regards,

Bill

There are many low cost 5V DC-DC switchers on the R/C market. Just check your favorite online FPV or R/C hobby shop.
