When I started flying 12 cell LiPo helicopters (2x 6cell) I realized that I needed a more serious 12V DC power supply. I had a quick look at what was commercially available to us modelers and decided to put something together myself.
I am sure a lot of fellows will chime in and say “I am using XYZ product with great results” or “why didn’t you do it like ………” and I am sure they will be absolutely correct.
This is simply the way I approached this need and have had good results with it. I hope that it may be an incentive for somebody to try his own construction.
The photos I believe are self explanatory.

very, very nice and neat.

an observation...
regardless of fan direction, consider a hole in opposite end for a draft effect.

I agree Pete
I can hear the fan sucking air into the box from around the lip of the box cover.
I am considering adding an Amp meter so I will open air inlet holes concurrently.
Thank you for your constructive input
