Here's another that looks interesting, Higher rating too.

ACC234 Key Features: • Adjustable output voltage, • Large heat sink for optimum performance, • Weight only 1.4 oz, • Current: 15 Amp continuous, 30 Amp peak @7.4V input. • Output voltage range: 4.8-16V. Input voltage must be at least 1V higher than output.
Note: Current capacity drops as input voltage increases.

NZ,
Nice... and reasonably priced. This is the first time of seen this particular one. Let us know how it performs if and when you decide to get it.

It would be nice if it had bigger input/output wires, like 16ga instead of them 22ga wires they have on there.

On a reg of this type, single voltage output, is a step down necessary for the gyro servo of a 401/9254 or 611/9256 when run at 6v?

you pretty much answered your own question...
6V is not good for your gyro.. a step down is needed

It's really not the 401 or 611 gyro that can't handle the 6V, it's the servo 9254, 9256 that should not be ran at 6V. Just put a step down between the gyro and the tail servo and you will be fine.

Could you use a large lead acid gel battery eg. 12v 7aH with a DC-DC converter(regulator) to provide you with all your outputs for a large turbine heli? (radio,gyro,lights.starter,pump)with a small ac generator for charging.This would do away with expensive lipos,Ni-Mh batteries and their various chargers and maintenance and storage issues.Lead acid cells are cheap and last years and are low maintenance.Has anyone ever done this?

I still believe the scot grey reactor-x is the only way to go....peace of mind for high end servos.
