Ok I have a question for all of those electronic wizzards out there.

I want to run my 12V video cam on the 3S 11.1v lipo. The reciever that I am looking at purchasing is the Black Widdow 2.4 ghz 200 mW system, where the transmitter runs on 5v. My question is this---Does anyone know how I can accomplish this task? I am looking at the Jameco part# 213268CH DC-DC converter. Any input on this and/or how it might work for that application would be appreciated.

Thanks C-YA RL

I suggest the TI/PowerTrend PT5101A. 9VDC to 38VDC input, 5VDC @ 1A output. Available at digikey.com. The data sheet is available from ti.com or digikey.

Another possible choice is the DE-SWADJ from Dimension Engr (a new small company that caters to R/C electronics hobbyists). 3VDC to 30VDC input, 1.25VDC to 13VDC (adj) @ 1A output. http://www.dimensionengineering.com/DE-SWADJ.htm
