Can the B6T 2 In 1 Voltage Regulator Combo [HE50H11-1] run the G3 System with 3 DS610 Cyclic servos, 1 DS650 Tail servo with an additional throttle servo and the RCE-G600 Governor? I know Align is packaging it that way but it seems like a lot of equipment..

Anybody using it?

I plan on using the unit. I really like the concept of the glow driver built in.

I'm waiting on my 3G 700LE package. Maybe issues with the 2 in 1 are holding up shipments or several of the other reported problems. I'll still wait on it. I can't imagine one flying better than my current 700N!

It will work just fine.
If you want more peace of mind. run a 7100R and a switchglow. It's a great combination that what im running on my vbar 700

I have a JR921 that I was planning on using.. How much are the 7100's and is it really worth it over my current 2 in 1 and the 921?

7100s are first choice IMO... although I have had good luck with the 2-1s and JR/Spektrum 9CH recievers too.

Looking at the 7100R price of over 200 bills.. I'm thinking I'll use the JR921 and the 2 in 1 for now.. If I have any issues I'll probably buy an Arizona regulator to replace the 2 in 1.

The only other issue would be if the Align Governor works as advertised. If not, then a 7100R would probably be the best bet if I need to replace the governor too.

Hey.

I'd just like to offer some heads up based on what I have experienced recently and please do no take this as a bashing against the Fromeco unit, as I thnik it's a truly awesome little regulator all bar one small detail.

Just recently I fitted the first 700 flybarless unit in the UK to my model and set about testing it, I was running an Arizona on my T700 with the newly fitted 3G FBL setup and during the 3rd flight I had what can only be described as a total fit as the model violantly flicked out of an inverted state during flight. Luckily I recovered with minimal damage, but enough was done to dent my confidence.

Anyhow, after spending the last few weeks going over & over the taken video of the flight and my setup the only thing I can think of as a possible cause is a low voltage/amp issue caused by the Arizona.
My reasoning behind this is that their rated power of 17 watts when converted to amps is very low at about 2 ~ 2.5 amps max, which when running 3+ digital servo's is low. Factor in that the 3G unit is working the 3 CCPM servo's a lot harder during flight and you will soon need more than 2 ~ 3 amps to power them.

In it's previous flybarred guise my model flew superbly with the Arizona, but it's becoming known the Align 3G units do not like low input voltages and so this is another pointer as to what my problem could have been.
The FBL unit is being checked out as I type and I have since sold my Arizonas which I shall replace with an ElyQ regulator of 10 amps output I am thinking now.

I cannot be 100% certain as to the real cause, I can only guess going by what I have now learnt about the output amps from a Fromeco unit and I have been using them for a number of years now first on a Turbine heli.

A very interesting post coolice.. I didn't think about the conversion to amps issue before.. I guess go all high amp.. no regulator..

Hey,

Neither did I until I had this problem and then have looked into it futher. Originally I thought the little Arizona was going to be outputting atleast 5 amps, but then when I've looked closer into it it's no where near.

Like I said it's a real shame as the unit is very well made, but it seems unuseable in a FBL setup where a good amp output is a must.

A lot of guys are mentioning the lack of mroe than one power input into the 3G brain box and are adding seperate wiring harnesses to provide power to the other two ccpm servo's which do not get power fed to them directly.
I'm going for the ElyQ as it has inputs on one side for servo connections, then outputs the other from which (I am guessing) the positive and negative power wires are bused together and it's only the signals which are kept individual.

That 17 watts you are reading in the specs of the Arizona reg is a typo. It should read 17 amps output. With that said, I doubt your "brownout" was the fault of the Arizona regulator.
