How about the Arizona. I plan on using it with BLS451's and a BLS251 tail. Any issues?

I wonder if a lot of the problems people are having with the 2 in 1 is the connector on it. Theoretically, that connector is maxed out at 6 amps. I can tell you that mine with that connector hooked up to a Lipo capable of 20amps continuous, I could make the lights on the switch flicker and say that the voltage was low by moving all the controls fast, even with a fresh charge. Switching out to mini Deans solved the problem, moving everything doesn't move the lights at all now.

You can't go wrong with the Arizona. It is built like a tank and works very well. I had used them for over 2 years. I just wish that the output amps were higher to better handle servos like the 8717's.

The Arizona is only rated at 4a output. The 8717's are known to pull a max of 3a-4a each.

So who sells a 15 amp regulator.

3 x 8717 = 12 amps.

Then you have the tail servo and everything else.

Maybe the 8717's pull 3-4 amps as a set of three?
