Something to remember about switching & non switching BECs

Non- switching does not cause noise. It may cause overheating shutdowns.
& a loss of power & lock the servos in place untill cooldown. 50 50 chance of a crash.

Switching BECs cause active random noise that will swing servos all over or into a stop. Total loss of control untill the plane comes close to the pilot again. More than a 50 50 chance of a crash in my opinion.
Never remove any Ferrite rings. They are a " Band Aid " for a VERY SERIOUS control problem at various flying distances.
I grew up on Ferrite Rings in USN radar systems.
