Default Name & Source regulator down to 6V Lion use?

I have been told there is a voltage regulator that reduces Lion type batteries pacs down to 6v for powering a RX. Search Tower to no avail. Any leads as to proper termilogy or sources?
Thanks

I used two different ones depending upon the size of the plane.

The [link=http://www.hobby-lobby.com/ubec.htm]KFS003[/link] UBEC has a 6v output for 3amps continuous and 5amps peak.

The FMA [link=https://www.fmadirect.com/site/fma.htm?body=Search_Results]VRLI2[/link] Power Force Regulator provides 6v at 10amps continuous for giant-scale applications.

Greg checked the first site but 2nd was not available.

Perhaps I should have explained my plans more throughly. Project is to switch my gasoline powered planes from NiMh to Lion flight packs. Currently using a 5 cell 1650 mAH NiMh pac and think a 2s2p pac of Lion 1850 mAH rating would work nicely.
No concern with electric motors and related controllers, as yet.

Give fmadirect.com another try. I just did, and it worked okay for me.

Also check out Duralite. They specialize in exactly what you want to do. I know a couple of people locally who ponied up for the Duralite system, and they absolutely love it.

The products in the links above don't care if it is a glow or electric plane.

Here is the link to [link=http://www.duralitebatteries.com/batteries.html]Duralite[/link].

Draganfly Innovations Inc.

From your site
This Thunder Power battery retails for $54.95, and the 6.0v Regulator retails for $35.99, for a total of $90.94. Draganfly Innovations offers this package at only $59.95, a 34% savings!!
Did not find the 6v regulator listed seperately and search for same came up empty. Also checked to see if prices listed were CAN or US dollar based.

This is yeilding some good reference sites.

All prices are in US funds.
Search parts.rctoys.com for 6.0 to find the regulator by itself.
