This may be obvious, but you are turning on the Transmitter prior to putting power to the Receiver/ESC/Servos, right?? I am not sure how a battery would strip a servo under any circumstances.
Just a thought!

I know this sounds crazy. The transmitter is on. I tested voltage
from the battery (8.4v) and from the regulator (5.9v unloaded).
I checked polarity. I plugged in a nicad pack and it worked fine.
I tried a larger Hitec servo, it turned to its limit and locked up!
I called Duralite and Hitec, nobody knows. Duralite: Voltage is voltage, Call Hitec... Hitec: Call Duralite, maybe regulator. I need
at least 3 new gear sets! How do regulators work? I'm thinking
about checking it on a scope at work. Nicads are too big for my
glider. Anyway, thanks for the replies. I don't think I'm smart anymore.
