4.8v servos.

Post by Anthony »

Here’s a poser/head scratcher.

I’m running 2 X 5000mah 6v through a power box Jeti switch, powering 6v servo’s except for the two elevator servo’s which are futaba (equivalent) 3150’s rated to 4.8v.

My question is, the output voltage through the switch and rx is 5.4v, this is fine for the the larger servo’s but what about the two 4.8v servo’s, taking into account that a 4 cell 4.8v charged battery going though a normal on/off switch produces more than the 5.4v with no adverse effects.

TIA.

Your nominal 4.8 volt servo,s should be fine on a regulated 5.4 volts , they just don't like a fully charged 5 cell battery , which can be over 7 volts
