RE: .50 size heli servos
I assume they can't handle the 5-cell NiMH pack because when fully charged, they put out more than 6V?
Sounds like I need to get a voltage regulator (6V) AND a step-down (5.1V) for the gyro/tr servo. Kind of weird to put a voltage regulator on a NiMH pack (I think LiIO when I think voltage regulator), but OK.
In doing a lot of searching, the 6V regulators that I see are designed to work with LiIO packs. For example, Align has several regulators and step-downs, but the descriptions indicate that the regulators are for use with LiIO packs ONLY. SO, what do I need to buy here? I have two 6V 1500mAh NiMH packs that I want to run in parallel. I need a step-down for the tail rotor servo/gyro. Can I buy just the step-down from Align or Duralite? Do I need to couple the step-down with a 6V regulator? What regulators are out there designed to work with 5-cell NiMH Packs?
