Default Make your own Stepdown regulator

Last week I was looking for a stepdown regulator. I've got the 2 in 1 from Align, great thing by the way. But nowhere a stepdown to be found.

the 2 in 1 provides 5.8V which is a little bit to high for most rudder servos. Need to knock off 0.7V.
You can do this by taking a short servo extension wire.
Cut the red wire.
Solder a Diode 1N4001 in between the 2 ends (kathode to the servo side)
and your done.... Use this between your gyro and rudder servo.

Cheap solution. This will cost your around 1.5 dollars.... and works fine.
