I've just converted my 90 size nitro machine to electric power and I want to install a separate BEC to run directly off of 12 cell voltage.
I'm looking for total reliability. Any suggestions as to the best unit to buy ?? and why.

Thanks

The Western Robotics Hercules Super BEC would be the only one I would trust. The castle PRO becs have had problems failing and putting 50 volts to all components rendering them useless. I prefer running a smaller 2s lipo and using a smaller BEC, like the Hercules BEC high current. or If your servos are capable running the 2s directly to the servos and using the Speketrum VR5203 regulator for the tail servo/gyro.

If you use a Kontronik esc, why not, then you can add the slave wire and use its internal BEC which is great.

IMHO I would never run a BEC on anything over 3S. Regulator and 2S (or even 3S) packs for me.

cheap piece of mind:

2100 mah life rx battery. Can be used wherever a 5 cell nicad can be used. Voltage is a pretty consistent 6.7 volts. Charge it as an A123 or LiFE only!

Never worry about a BEC failure sending 50 volts to your radio equipment. It's also easy to turn on your radios without powering your motor for safe bench setup.

I got a fever! The only prescription is MORE 6HV
