Default Hitec HS-55 current question.

What's the stall current of an HS-55? All the current ratings I can find for it are no-load. Does anyone have a torque/current curve for it by chance? All questions are assuming 4.8 volts 15.27 oz/in (According to 1 web site not sure what the official numbers are) I want to find the linearity and power usage as load increases. What about under abusive conditions, such as if I were to really twist the servo hard back and forth while it was fighting to stay stationary. What would be the peak current and duration be? If you're wondering why I'm asking so many questions it's cause I'm trying to establish physical limitations for a project I'm working on before I build it so I need as many numbers as I can find. The current source I'm using is fairly limited so I have to use external capacitors to supply peak current and I need hard numbers to figure out what components I'm going to be using.
