6v instead of 4.8 V to power the xps Rx

Hello ,

as most of my servo work with 4.8 v , can i use a 6 v batery plus a voltage regulator that keep votage @ 5.1 volts or the CC bec from Castle could be a solution in electric power ?

my idea ( I dont know if good ) is that with a 6 v batery plus a 5.1 V regulator the rx will always have not less than 5.1 v and my 4.8v servos will be ok , what you think ?

thanks for your help

Hope this explains the difference between what you see on the meter and the reason for the orange LED.

Because of this I would not fly ANY 2.4ghz RX with a 4.8V battery.
