Replacement diode for Align 5.1 step down


My tail sero isn't working any more after a crash this morning.

Looks like the step down cable that comes with the align regulator is at fault. I tested the diode with a voltmeter and it seems to be faulty ( infinite impedance in both directions).

The diode has the following written on it: M64 RL201

What do I ask for at an electronics supplier?

1N4001 is the diode you are looking for. White ring (kathode) should be towards the servo.

The 1N notation sounds more familiar.

Thanks KaanX.

Thatís a 2 amp diode, the 1N4001 is only a 1 amp diode. Digikey has them 10 for $0.43. Those things are dirt cheap.

Hear is the link to the data sheet:
