Default brand new ds3421 smoked!

Has anyone else had a problem with these servos? I have 5 of them in my just completed yellow starfire and the right flap 3421 servo stoped working during the first 30 minutes of radio setup. The servo panle was really hot, I'm surprised it was not smoking!
Could it be the fact that I am using 6v? I mean all of the other ones were fine.
please help!

There have been issues with the 3421 when used with a gyro, but otherwise it has been an outstanding servo. Either there was a problem with the servo, or a heavy load placed on the servo for some time and it caused the problem.
