Question
A123

Hi Jim, Query re 123. Some of my earlier digital servos that are moulded into my a/c structure are intolerant of 6.0v rx packs. Iwould like to use A123 2 cell packs for these models.I am using Eneloop 800 mah cells at present Is it feasible to put a couple of high current silicon diodes in series with the output to reduce the voltage to acceptable levels for these servo's? Regards, XJH

Yes, this definitely works. We have several customers using two 5A diodes in series for tail rotor servos.
