Cheap DIY BR Questions
What is the cheapest decent option for building a BR with good output?
Can I get all I need for ~40 dollars? (driver + 803t in a host)
Do I need a kit and heatsink?
What mA should the driver output?
What voltage should I input?

Re: Cheap DIY BR Questions
Hey welcome to the forum ;)

Here is what you will need.

-803T costs about 13 dollars from Drew who is a great seller.
-Aixiz module is about 4 dollars.
-Driver, well it depends on your host, if 7.2v or greater then go with a Rckstr driver which are 18+ shipping, if over 2v and under 5.5v then go with a lava drive, which cost 23+ shipping.
-Your host.
-Well a heat sink is necessary, especially if you want a longer duty cycle/ diode life.
-If you go to dark horse customs he sells kits that are great and include everything except a diode/driver.
-Again, for a heat sink, either buy a kit or make one out of some aluminum.

So cheapest for a diode,driver,module is 35+ shipping.

Heat sink is up to you.

If you have any more questions add me on MSN. ;)

Re: Cheap DIY BR Questions
Oh and mA would be around 120, voltage depends on your host/driver.
