Need help finfing 12V BEC
I need a 12V BEC to power my Discovery Pro Vtx.
I have a HK version but it has such bad ripple that its useless.
I need it fairly quickly and have been looking online at US shops and cannot seem to find one. Plenty of 5v but it seems 12v are hard to find without going overseas which I don't want to do.
I also believe I should be looking for a linear version, not switching, but am not sure.
Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.

i have a rangevideo 12v regulator. it's filtered and works well for me.

These are the best units I've found, make sure you use an l.c filter too.
Many have had luck with the range video linear reg... Personally I've had 2 die so I'm not a fan.

Thank you for the info. I just ordered two of the range video linear regs. Bad timing...
Interesting you had two die, gives me a bad feeling.
I do have one of the dpcav adjustable regs but not the LC filter.
I gather they are not that clean thus the filter. I was hoping to find a solution in a single unit.
What was the load on the RV unit when they were failing? I should be only drawing less than 100ma.
Thanks again for the info.

I've made my own BECs out of these on ebay.. They work pretty well and cheap. I can't comment on the noise though, I haven't put them in video.
