I am an educator work with a non-profit in India and work with low income community rural kids on basic DIY science. I am currently exploring electric free flight models and they use a Peterborough FET timer as given here: http://peterboroughmfc.org/technical-articles/web_site_FETtimer.htm.
It uses a 1/8 W resistor with 16V 47uF tantalum capacitor and STD12NF06L mosfet. Since I do not know electronics, I have not been able to interpret its data sheet or find a substitute mosfet in India. Please help me find a substitute fet for it.
Does TI have any equivalent product for this fet and can I be get some free samples?
In reply to Chris Bull:
I see that the Id value is significantly larger for these TI mosfets and dimensions are bigger too. Since i will be using these in an aircraft model, the weight is a very important factor. How can I find out the exact weight of these fets? Also is there a place to check the weights of fets in general?
