Dual Linear PSU for Model Aircraft

Dual Linear PSU for Model Aircraft
In 'full-size' aviation, vital aircraft systems are doubled, or even tripled, up in order to guarantee critical event rates that are sometimes less than one in a billion flying hours. Why not adapt these principles to radio-controlled model aircraft?

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.

Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.
