Default BLS471SV and BLS571SV Servos

On the Tower website, in the comment section of each of these servos, it says:

"For full performance, a 2.4GHz surface radio system is recommended.
This servo cannot be used with an air radio system."

Why can't they be used in an airplane with a 12Z and 6008 Rx? What detriment would exist?

Can the 6008 handle 8 volts?

Car servos typically have a lower centering accuracy than air servos, which need the higher precision.

The R6008HS receiver's specifications state a 6V maximum because it was designed before Lithium battery packs became commonly used. It is highly recommended to use a regulated power source.
