    Something sounds wrong, Jim. I can feel the extra viscosity after a lube (it doesn't spin freely), but not like you're describing.

    Aerocal, I think we're talking apples-'n-oranges here. I was referring to voltage regulation inside the receiver itself. Indeed, raw voltage passes through the receiver and is delivered to the servos...

    I think I would go with the receiver theylmun recommends, stay with the lipos and get a really quality BEC. I recommend the Castle 10A, which I have used a lot.

    Okay dirtybird. Then you won't mind proving your contention by applying 8.4V to standard servos in one of your planes and then flying it a few times.
    Let us know how things go.

    rustyrivet, I strongly recommend that you replace all of your servos that were exposed to 8.4V. They are rated at a maximum of 6.0V.

    AFAIK, all modern receivers have internal voltage regulators, so I believe dirtybird is correct on this.
    However I must disagree with respect to the servos. I made the exact same mistake a couple of...

    Kraft cleaner

    A number of us own older vinyl-clad transmitters thirty plus years old. After a few years of exposure to castor oil and the human hand crud, they can become pretty dingy.
