I needed a 12V power supply for my new charger. After looking around at high priced power supplies I decided to make my own power supply.
Here's the temporary power supply I came up with. I say temporary as I will mount it into a case and I will be adding a temperature sensor for the fan unit. A little soldering and a couple wires later this bad boy is rocking out SOME REAL POWER!
The specs are as follows: 700 watts
110 volt or 220 volts
This unit will allow me to run 2 - Bantam 902 chargers and charge 6 - 4S batteries at the same time!
If anyone is interested in one of these 12V power stations then let me know.
I could build you one for $40 to $50 shipped CONUS.
I can also build 24V power supplies for an additional $20 ($60 to $70).
Or contact me and I'll tell you how to DIY.

This is some pictures of 1 of the 2 Octocopters Chris Bergen of Bergen R/C Helicopters has designed and is currently building for myself and another guy.
The octo has OS30 motors and DJI WooKong M (WK-M) flight control.
The camera mount is gyro stabilized and designed by Jody Prather of HeliCam Solutions to carry a 5D camera. My camera mount is slightly smaller for the Canon T3i camera that I will be using. The retracts are supplied by Bill at Spring Air Retracts and redesigned to accommodate the Octocopter by Jody Prather of HeliCam Solutions. Chris Bergen took these photos of the build progress.
Thanks and hope you enjoyed the view! More pics, test flights, and AP photos to follow.
If you're looking for a cheap toy to play with then these probably aren't for you. As Customers of Bergen R/C Helicopters are aware, we build strong and heavy duty, and these Multi-rotor machines are no different. These machines are for Industrial, Heavy Duty use with large motors and propellers, producing an incredible amount of thrust. Complete systems, assembled and tested with motors and ESC's, and include the DJI Wookong M GPS Multi rotor stabilization and autopilot system.
