Default HS 605 & 645 max voltage

Can HS 605 and HS 645 servos safely be used with A123 batteries @ 7.2 volts, or will a regulator be needed?

Thanks
Bill Barlow

Not sure what the "right" answer is but I have been using 645mg's for about a year on unregulated A123's without an issue. I run many of them now since testing them in the craft with the 645's. If fact I haven't found a single Hitec servo that dislikes the higher voltage. Keep in mind a fully charged 6v Nixx pack is well above the voltage of a A123 fully charged.
