Transmitter Servo Max Voltage

Postby tgdavies » Sun Mar 11, 2012 10:36 am

I'm building a (rather small) model boat, the main motor of which is planned to be a Vigor VS-2A servo modified for continuous rotation, and a HK GT-2 RX.

Both of these have a specified maximum operating voltage of 6.0V. I want to run from a 2S LiFe, and would like to avoid a BEC/regulator if I can -- does anyone know whether this servo and RX could handle a fully charged 2S LiFe (nominally 6.6V)?

[edit: Bruce has answered in the affirmative for the RX here -- viewtopic.php?f=45&t=1373#p10139 ]

Thanks,
Tom

Most servos that are rated for 6V will work fine with an LiFePO4 pack. In fact, a fully-charged 5-cell NiMH pack has a higher voltage than the LiFe packs anyway.

These are pretty cheap servos though so don't expect them to be totally reliable over time.
RCModelReviews.com, just the facts.
