I assume that this voltage will not hurt the servos but I am concerned that the servos are rated for 6 volts input. Any of you have any thoughts? I appreciate it. I also have a load tester from hobbico.
A fully charged LiFepo4 will put less voltage to your servos than a fully charged 5 cell NIMH which many of us use, including myself. I am putting LiFe in all my new planes.
