I haven't tried putting the power in via the SRX cable, but I don't see why it shouldn't work, a couple of comments on your arrangement ... you will be driving the cyclic servos at 5V which will slow them down slightly and give you less torque - probably not an issue. However in your comment about connecting the Y-cable into the SRX2 port - you would still need to plug it into the SRX1 port as well as the cyclic servos and tail servos have a separate power bus (hence the need for the jumper between SRX1 and SRX2) - a slightly neater way would be to feed 6V to the cyclis servos and build a lead that goes to the SRX2 port with a diode in it to drop the voltage from 6V to 4.8V for the 9257 - Align sell such a cable.

Cheers,
Mike.
