Help!
HS 81 Servo on 6 Volt dangerous?

TO: Hitec people

What is your comment on the following posting?

"I do know for sure from personal experience that running HS-81 servos (which are also rated only at 4.8 volts ) on a 6 volt pack will kill them. I lost 3 HS-81 servos in my first Nemesis with a 6 volt pack intalled before I figured out what was happening."

HS-81 specs are listed at both 4.8V and 6.0V.

Ivan,

Thanks for reassurance. I am using 5-cell with HS81 and became alarmed after reading the above post.

Hi John,

We recommend 4.8v-6.0 volt on all Hitec servos. If your killing them you might want to change to another servo?
