Voltage regulator
Not getting any help in the Electric forum so figured I'd post here:
Need some help.....

I have an Arizona regulator a friend gave me. The voltage is currently set at 7.6. I'm wanting to take it down to 5 volts. I've connected it to my 2s lipo and voltmeter after connecting I shorted the two prongs on the side per instruction and the voltage doesn't budge. Anyone have any ideas?

You may need to test output under load.

I have a couple Arizona regulators as well. I used Fromeco's 8-ball voltage checker to set the voltage on mine though. I don't remember having an issue. I remember shorting those 2 pins with a small flat-blade screwdriver and watching the voltage move up, then I would remove the screwdriver, then do it again to get the voltage to move down. I think I set to 5.3 or somewhere near there.

I've only ever used the 8-ball to set the voltage though--never tried it with a different voltage checker.

Adjustable of fixed voltage?
I am working on a scale AH-1S Cobra and decided to go all out on the build by adding lights and a spinning M197 Gatling gun. The motor I used can run from 1.25 to 12V but I found the RPM on a 1S lipo at 3.7 volts was almost too much. So I stumbled on this site and they have a huge selection of fixed or adjustable voltage regulators.

Just check under DC to DC....

I wired mine up and it will INCREASE or DECREASE input voltage to a desired range. Set it to 3.3V and it is just right. Here is a link to a quick vid I did post install. Hope it helps! the devices are small as well so not too intrusive if space is a premium.
