Is anyone aware of a convenient, ready made voltage regulator to use between a 3 cell battery and the retracts so they get their required diet of 7.4 volts?
Thanks for any help offered.
any cheap BEC should do it, would limit the voltage to normal sevo output and for the amount of time you are going to run them should be fine. Other wise if you don't want ready made you could wire up some voltage regulators pretty easily into the power line
