    So, my project is having a problem, and I am not sure how to fix it.
    I am using a 5,000 mAh 7.4 volt, two cell lipo battery. I am also using this linear voltage regulator ( ). I use a volt meter to adjust the voltage to 5.0 volts. No problem.
    But, when I use the project under load, the voltage out put generaly drops to about 3.6 volts which is unacceptable.
    What, if anything, can I do to fix this? I have a presentation tomorrow, and need to try and get this fixed tonight.
