Default JR 537's with 6volt

I keep having servo problems using 6v power with JR 537 servos. I even lost a plane in July on it's 11th flight and almost lost one yesterday when the right aileron servo decided to go crazy in flight. Got the plane back safely and the servo was jumping all over the place. This was the seventh flight on the plane with the first six problem free. Is 6v to much for these servos? Has anybody else experienced this problem with 537's?

Before you put any servo on a 6V pack you must confirm that it is compatible with a 6V pack, the data should be available from their website.

No Y, they are programed with 9303 radio and the plane is a UCANDO 46. The only reason I used the 6v pack was to balance the plane with the extra weight. I have since removed the 6v pack and went with a 4.8v. Problem solved, and flew the plan several times today.

I don't seem to have a problem with 6v and 537 servos, until winter time. Not sure why it behaves differently in the cold, but the servos will go crazy. So I fly 4.8v during the winter.
