The items shown above are part of a 5.8GHz video transmitter (#5) setup offered by Range Video. All items are sold as individual items and like a big dummy I forgot to get Santa Clause order their powersupply (#4) when she placed her order for the transmitter.
So the luck of the Irish kicks in and Mr. Murphy ordered their last Filtered Linear Power Supply and there's no telling when they will be back in stock. So I'm on the hunt for another suitable power supply that will output the required 3.3v to run the transmitter and camera. I've poked around and found that a lot of the setups used by fellow DIYDrones members have built in voltage regulators and are just attached to a lipo (typically 7.2v).
I have a few other projects in mind beyond the video transmitter for my Raven so getting a good lead on a good ps would be very nice to have.
I did manage to find several power supplies that may work but I'd like to know what more experienced tinkerers think.
This one is intended to use a walwart in the recommended 7-9v range. It outputs a selectable 5v or 3.3v but forgive the newb-ness, I'm not sure if I HAVE to use a walwart. Wouldn't a 2 or 3 cell lipo do the DC trick just fine?
You tell Me... If all these finds are junk and you use something else, please let me know. Also if you have a design I could build that would work too.
