Default JR 6volts or 4.8 v

Hi all.
Can anyone enlighten me about 6volts on JR recievers and servos. My local distributer (in England) says do not use 6 volts on any JR reciever, but I notice a lot of people in the states use it with apparently no problems. I use DS1000 recievers and do not want to risk my new fc Extra, but would like the extra power from 6 volts.

Cheers

Rob

6 volts should be fine to use with JR equipment, however your receivers may be different. Generally there is no risk to the receiver in using a 6 volt system. Quique used a 4.8 volt system in his TOC Yak, so 6 volt systems are not always beneficial, even in the most demanding applications.

From your answer..............

6 volts will not damage your 341 servos?

6 volts would be fine on the 341.
