Has anyone tried running the GWS picos on a standard size rx with a 6V pack???? I know most parkflyers run 7.2V or higher, but doesn't the spped control limit how much voltage actually goes to the rx?????

Most speed controls put out 5 volts at 1-1.5 amps. GWS does rate the pico servos to handle 6 volts, however i really dont see the need to, the size and weight of plane these would go in would probably benefit more from a 4 cell pack and the lighter weight than a 5 cell pack with increased torque and speed, at a higher wing loading

I'll be using them as the jumper release servos for my 1/4 Flybaby. I'll be running high torque GWS servos elsewhere that will need the 6 volts to speed them up a bit.

They should work fine for the purpose, i just hope they hold up to vibration- although they can take some serious crashes and still keep pluggin along How do you like GWS' bigger servos? ive been eyeballing them for a while, i like the picos, had horrible luck with the Naros.

Dylan,
Thanks for the link. I didn't think to look there. I haven't flown the standard size yet, only a ground try. At 6V, the S03Ts have 111oz/in torque and move at .27 sec. At 4.8V, they have 100 oz/in torque and move at a SLOW .33 sec. As long as you don't need super fast servos, they should be ok. There not very expensive either, I think I got mine for roughly $12 a piece.
