I'm going to convert to the JR DX9 soon as well as use the duralite 5.3v regulator. Can someone tell me where they've mounted the regulator? A pic would be nice and this will be on a trex nitro, thanks.

I think you're finding less people using the duralite regulator these days. possibly inadequate for some of the more amp hungry servos. PERSONALLY, I'd get something with a heatsink...if you like duralite, there's the Gemini, and then there's the Fromeco Arizona, and also aligns 6 amp reg (which I have been using with no problems)

No.

I have some space on both ends of the regulator to get some air flow. I have since, secured the battery with a velcro strap. I secured the velcro to the frame with the fan shroud screw. I put one strap on each side.

I run JR8311's on the swash. I have never had any problems. I run duralites regs in all my helis. I use the 6V regs and I use a step down on the tail. I step down the voltage going into the 611 amp. You have to disconnect the red wire on the gain connector going into the amp to get this to work. Or you can put the step down between the amp and the servo. I like it at the amp. That way I can read the voltage on the stepped down side of the diode.

I like Duralite regulators. Never tried anything else. No reason to.

Ok, thanks again! I was going to return the duralite but now I'll give it a try, also I'm going to use a flightpower RX pack with it.

I had my reg in the side of the radio tray (611 amp location in pic) and it worked fine. I ran an extension out of the canopy area so i could plug in the power with the canopy on.

I modded a v1 align reg and put it in the same place. Once you get used to the onboard glow it's hard to go back.

Want to buy a lightly used 6v duralite reg ?

I'll use the duralite for my nitro sport and maybe use the align for the second nitro I plan to get

I have five Duralite Regulator/Battery setups now.

So far, they have all worked very well. I do wrap the batteries in foam, as though the were an old, crystal reciever. Part of this is force of habit (we all did this in the olden days). Part of it is because of the "Smart Balance" circuit board in the Duralite Batteries (I want to keep it safe from vibration).
