Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

Power step down

Hi all, quick question. I need to step my voltage for my FPV system down to 5v from a 3s lipo. Will simple 5v step down do the trick? I have only ever used a step down on a 2s lipo on my helicopters. I could use a power rev but do not want to add too much more weight.

Hi, just use a BEC..
That's what I used on the  TX less headtracker project in my post . It needs to be a reasonable quality one though ,so you don't introduce  any electrical noise onto the system. Hobbyking sell a range of suitable ones.   
The ones I used had a ferrite ring on the output cable, 3A rating and make sure they will take a 3S supply...( You need very little power for either the Goggles or the aircraft end so the BEC doesn't need to be a high capacity one.)

I would try a linear one and a switching one to see what gives the best results for your set up..
