Is this speed controller ok for a brushed Zoom 400?

Hi,
I just wondered if this speed controller would be ok for a stock Zoom 400?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...e=STRK:MEWA:IT

Not sure about the upgradable firmware for li-po, how would i upgrade?

Cheers,
Wayne

It states that the BEC can handle 4 servos but no mention of a gyro. The seller pulled it from one of his planes so you might want to look into it further to see if it can indeed handle the extra load. I would assume the firmware update would be for the cutoff voltage.

Really? Even something like a 240 or 401?

Thanks, Duane

ime not sure but it wont be anything near .2 amp ime guessing that will be max for even the best gyros

most gyro's supply around 2-3 amps correct me if ime wrong but it goes down the hgiher voltage you use can any one explain why?
