Default aa batteries to lipo conversion for steering and rx.

Hey Guys,

I have a Kyosho 1/10 Fazer nitro and i was hoping i could get some insight, i'm sick of using AA batteries as i have heaps of lipo's sitting around doing nothing atm, I was hoping someone might be able to assist in telling what i need to do to convert the 4AA batteries that power the servo and RX to work off of a lipo battery.

Cheers guys.

If u have a Lipo that will fit just put a regulator on it and you will be fine.

Here are a few to choose from. GL

Youd need a voltage regulator. The AA setup is 6.0v, while the lipo fully charged is 8.4v

Send a message via ICQ to Roelof

Or you can use 2 simpel 1n5402 diodes to lower the voltage from a LiPo battery
The quality of an answer comes with the quality of the question.
