Align Regulator Shot?
I bought one of these: K10381A - 5.1 TWO-WAY STEP DOWN VOLTAGE REGULATOR

It says 5.1V regulator, so I assumed it means exactly that. When I checked it last night with a DVM, it steps down 6.0V to 5.6V. Not what I expected. Did I guess wrong or does this only work with an Align VR?

That's not a regulator, it's a step down diode. - bad/incorrect name for what it does. It should be stepping down .8V to .9V though. Are you sure you are getting 6.0V to it?

Positive. I adjusted the Arizona I'm using to 6.0 and connected the step down. I used a DMV to check the output, and it's 5.6 at 6v input.Formerly SunFunFlyer.

I just ordered a WR 5.2v tail step down as a test to see if it's me, but I doubt it. Formerly SunFunFlyer.

If you have an Arizona why not use the 5.1V tap right off the regulator for the tail servo? It's one of the nice features of the Arizona!

I should have been more specific. I'm using a VBAR and SBUS. It's easier to drop just the tail servo to 5v.Formerly SunFunFlyer.
