Default Common Sense RC regulator

Has anyone tried the Common Sense R/C/ voltage regulator?

It's this one listed at 10 amps and is adjustable:

I've been having trouble with some regulators overheating and want a bulletproof regulator.

THANKS!

run Li-FP and ou can do away with all the regulator problems... runs direct to the rx.... i run mine for about a year without any problems... a lot safer and hardier than li-pos...

I ran a protek when they first came out and mounted it outside. The wires came off where they connect to the regulator within a few days use.

I've also ran the Losi inside and that seems pretty good, very few glitches. I just want the most durable one out there and am curious about the Common Sense regulator.

worst thing about the common sense is all the extra wire to much to deal with and dont like splicing

For that much $$$ I would buy a Castle CCBEC and programmer to go with it. It has the same specs and can be set to any specific output voltage you want.

Physically tough? Some shoe goo on the wires, etc would hlep make any of them more durable.

Not necessarily physically tough, but can it handle the load of 2 digital servos well?

My Protek would heat up too much too fast and my HT regulator seems to cutoff my servos and glitch when it gets hot after about 20 min of use.
