Not sure about that, but instead of having a battery, switch (possibly a regulator), you have one device that runs off your RX battery for ignition.

I'm cautious about this, to bad no one has piped up that they are using one.

I have been using it since they came out. Have the Wike in 2 35% planes with no problems.

Highly recommended.

I picked up a used plane that has one of the Wike IBEF units in it.
Not sure what version it is, but the instructions I found online say there is an
adjustment for the output voltage by way of a potentiometer.

My IBEF does not have this potentiometer.
Any other way to get the voltage under 6 volts?
Do I need to use a resistor?

Is there a website for these products anywhere?
Strange, but I couldn't find one!

Thanks
Bob

There is a unregulated LiPo version older version and V2 is the newer version that handles most battery chemistry. Plug it in to your receiver and attach a volt meter. V2 is regulated to 5.6v. I've never had to adjust mine so I have no idea how to.
I couldn't find any other info on Wike either. You could call TBM for help. I think they are the only ones that sell that brand.
If you find out how to adjust them, please post the procedure.

That must be what I have, although mine is set at 5.99 volts one two different volt meters.
The version 2.0 instructions I found online mention the adjustment??

My DLE ignition just took a dump and I'm wanting to reduce the voltage on the IBEF to 5 or less.


Thanks for the info

Bob
