Regulator info needed

    Recently acquired a plane with two of the old style, chewing gum shape Fromeco regulators, which are working just fine.
    Can anyone share their knowledge on these units? Is there a compelling reason to replace these with the new Sahara.
    Running two Thunder Power RX batteries for power.
    Appreciate anyone's insight.

    If they are working and the wire looks to be in good condition I'd use them. They are adjustable, I'm sure you can still get the manual online and if not I'm sure they would send it to you. I had several back in the day. What else do you need to know?

  3. Biggest thing would just make sure you have the appropriate size gauge wire for the application. I have seen some guys order the regs with just one 22 gauge wire in and out for use on ignition but have used that for the whole plane. Otherwise go out and fly it.

    They are adjusted by shorting the pins on the side of the regulator. Short the pins together with a small screw driver, and each time you remove the screwdriver it will increase approximately .2 volt. Once you get to the max output voltage it will reset to the lowest voltage. Max out is just over 6 volts and minimum is around 5

    What's the maximum input voltage of the fromeco sahara old regulator?
