    Connecting a ubec

    Hi I have a question regarding connection of a ubec to run a number of lights on the truck. I don't want to use the receiver to power the lights. Any ideas where is the best place to connect the ubec? I also don't fancy adding a separate lipo just for lights.

    Universal Battery Elimination Circuit (UBEC)*is a 'switch mode' DC regulator that takes the high voltage (up to 23 volts) of the main battery pack and converts it to a consistant and safe 5 or 6 volts (selectable) for your receiver and servos. A UBEC is needed if the Electronic Speed Control (ESC) being used for the motor does not have a built in Battery Elimination Circuit (BEC), or if the BEC of the ESC is inadequate to power the number and/or size of servos being used.*In this case lights. You can also get a UBEC that supports higher lipo voltage input than 23 volts.

    It should come with directions, but I believe you connect it to the batteries. Go on YouTube. I'm sure someone did a video on it.
