Yes, you are missing the fact that most servos operate down to 2.5v, which is why it was important for us to make sure our reboot voltage was well below that. Servos are following the same path that we are, trying to obtain lower and lower operating voltage because of the current loads they cause. Just like 2.4GHz radio systems, they are using microcontrollers to control them. If the voltage is too low, the servo won't function.
