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.

Thanks Happy Flying

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
