I'm guessing this is the thread where the stray servo-frying comment from a unrelated thread actually belongs to.

Whats the Voltage Rating of your Servo? Is It 7.4V or more?

Are you saying that your servo is supposed to operate at 10.8V - 18V?

Anyways, if your servo is not able to cope with 2S (7.4V) and you connected the 2S battery straight to your servo tester then that might be the reason you fried it.

I would really like to hear from some of the experienced guys here if that's the way to test servos or more the way to smoke servos and blow lipos.

I wanted to test a servo myself a couple of days ago and bought a speed control with a 6V bec to connect it to the 6V servo.

Thanks Guys.
