    Standard JRDS821 servos on 6v?

    Hello everyone. Just had a quick radio question as I'm switching all my 4.8 receiver batteries to 6v. The servo rating is for 6v, but when fully charged, the battery is around 6.2 to 6.5 volts give or take, am I going to cook the servo when its a little above like this? I'll be running 4 of these servos total in the airplane.

    Thanks

    Jason

    821's are all I use. I run them on A123's (fully charged they can reach 7.2 volts, the same as a five cell NIMH pack, no regulatr required). Enjoy.

    Just a .60 Pheonix models edge 540. Not doing any 3d, more pattern style aerobatics than anything.

    Awesome servos. They are the new standard for 'standard' servos, in my opinion.

    x2 even my basic 40 size plane has these servos. Great servo at a great price.
