at full deflection did yours servos hum or buzz ? They were buzzing for sure

I don't think it had anything to do with the harness or battery. I am going to have another look at my linkage as I rushed to build the plane in time for the comp.
Agreed a 6 volt enloop pack "should" not cause that issue. However ANY impedance phsyically will really load up those servos and especialy the pots - Thats the only way I killed 809s - at full deflection I really worked hard to make sure there was no strain on the servos (no buzz) so that when I pulled the stick all the way I had only the airflow to fight and not friction or contact with the subspar or skin etc.

However it does not suprise me that your X survived unscathed. Those models are ___ing tough!
