Default Help 6 volt in rambler

Hello all I purchased a seeker II receiver for my new Rambler 45 at that time I ordered a 6 volt battery for the rx my servos are rated for both 4.8 and 6 volt. I thought I was doing a good thing by going to 6 volt but know I am reading about needing regulator and better chance of failure. Is a regulator needed? Am I asking for trouble? Will I be ok? Don't know if it is helpful but I have6 servos in the plane Hi-tec for the throttle and retracts and futaba for everything else.

Please help before I install.

Best,
Robert

Adding a voltage regulator just introduces several more failure points into the already complex system.

Keep things simple. Use the 6 volt battery and see how the radio system performs.

Remember you need a 5 cell charger.

Thanks for the info. Do you think I will do any damage without one all the equipment says it supports 6 volt. This is my second plane and has not been flown yet so I am being a bit cautious.

Best,
Robert
