Default Battery question

Hey all
I have a cheap 2 channel set up that I have removed from a cheap plane, every thing is made together ESC is and transmitter is one sealed unit, 2 small motors tied in and is a pusher set up
I am building new plane lighter and better design that will fly unlike original plane
The question is it now operates on 4.8 batt, if I put a 6v batt in will it cook everything
I just wanted to get more power and longer flight time
what do you think
Ace.....doesn't reflect flying ability....YET

Unfortunately, there's no way to know unless you try...

Is there a label on the ESC/receiver that specifies the input voltage? If there is, I'd recommend you not exceed what the label says.
