Hi Guys

I don't know if I've blundered here or not. I bought a duralite battery pack and regulator the other day, thinking I was getting the 5.1 volt reg, however I have the 5.6 volt regulator.

I run a 401/9254 setup and 3 x 3152's with a 3001 on the throttle and a revlock. All the servo's and the 401 appear to be rated at 4.8 to 6 volts so am I safe to assume I'm not going to hurt anything ?

What do you use similar to a voltspy as a visual battery chack when using duralites?

Many thanks

5.6 volt will be fine.

Nothing, every couple of flights I use the DB-43051 Duralite digital batt checker.

Sipper, if you remove the heatshrink from the regulator, you will find a small potentiometer on the board..
This is what Duralite use to set the output voltage (all reg's are the same).
From memory i think it will dial up to about 6.4 volts, if you adjust it you need to put a load on it, of course removing the outer heat shrink will probably void any warranty.

A battery checker is useful as an idiot light. Fitted not to check the battery voltage, but to confirm that you have switched off.
If you accidentally forget to switch off, the battery will be ruined if the voltage goes too low.
Of course if you are never likely to make that sort of error, then you won't need it..
