[Dprglist] RC Battery Eliminators

A number of virtuanl meetings ago the need for voltage regulators arose. 
One source for them is RC battery eliminators. They are light, robust, 
and powerful. I used a Castle Creations BEC to provide power for servos 
on one project. The input was 7.2v from LiPos. I also have a Dimension 
Engineer SWADJ 3 which is a down converter. The SWADJ is 3 amp and 
Castle has units that go higher.

Reminded of this because I mounted a Pi on my RVR robot. The RVR has a 
USB port that supplies 2.1A but it sags below the Pi's voltage dropout. 
The Pi hasn't crashed but the power warning LED does go dark. Will need 
to add something to handle the Pi and Dev-D-Lite camera.
