I don't have any experience with this, but it looks interesting, built in voltage monitor/indicator, switchable output voltage (could get someone in trouble), but what is strange is the big 15A which may lead you to believe it can handle 15 amps, but the specs say:
Output (Constant): 5v/8A or 6v/8A
and it says it on the case, just in small print.
I do like the way the specs are written and the metal case to enclose the switcher for shielding.
I have a 2.4 Ghz system so a switcher would be fine, but on a 75 Mhz system I would be wary of any switcher, you have enough problems with potential glitches.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Apparently you missed the "will burst to 15 amps" part of the specs . . . Granted, stretching things a bit putting "15A" on the thing, but that's where it came from . . . Curious, though, that they don't mention for how long . . .

The all new Turnigy 15 is an advanced switching DC-DC regulator which will supply a constant 8A or more with short bursts of up to 15amps!
8 amp continuous, 15 amp burst...interesting.

A shielded case plus a toroid on the output would go a long way towards making this baby work on a 72 MHz system.
