    Pololu 12v Stepdown

    I have a couple of these but I have no clue how to wire them up.

    I've searched around and did find a thread that said they were noisy.

    I was thinking of using one for my Vtx and Camera on a 4s Battery.

    What thread said they were noisy?

    You'll be fine with an LC filter.

    [Solved] I have the connection sussed now.

    Seems that the two grounds are shared , this was the part that was confusing me .
    you use vin/gnd/vout.

    The battery hooks up to vin/gnd and 2 wires then go from gnd/vout to my camera.
    both share the single gnd.

    I was actually just looking at one of these as well. I'm not sure how I would incorporate it into my rig if I'm using the mini iosd. Its probably simple but I don't want to fry anything.

    I'm still learning the ropes but I've managed not to fry anything yet but I'm sure the day will come
    I must admit I hold my breath when I connect something new for the first time.

    Also you need to connect SUTDWN/ pin to VIN or the device could shutdown .
