Default futaba 3305 servo, not with NiMH???

Ok guys, servo question here...


I was eye balling these servo's for in my Funtana X 50, but....
I use 1450 MaH batteries, 6V....NiMH.
According to the describtion, Futaba recommends only NiCD batteries for these servo's.

Is there a reason for that??is my hydrimax battery NiMH not to be recommended for these servo's??

Thanks for the response...

Dont worry about it.

That warning originated when the first couple of generations of NiMH cells had a high internal resistence and the voltage dropped off under a severe load such as digital servos are capable of drawing. Newer cells and especially the higher capacity ones are fine, just buy quality cells and you won't have any problems.
