Default 8711 & regulator

Does the 8711 really need a regulator using a 6 volt NiMH? I've been running the 5955's without a regulator and NEVER had any problems!

Hey Rob,

How you been doin'? I asked that question for my current project.

Here was my question.

Greetings, I am wanting to use the JR-8711 in my 33% yak on the rudder. I will be using the FAUP 1950's 6 volt batteries without regulator for power.

Is there any problem using this servo on a 6v - 5 cell battery or should I go with 4.8v?

and here is what I got.

""Richard,

Thank you for your recent email. No problem with 6 volts.

I hope you find this information useful. If you should have any further questions, please reply to this email or give us a call at 1-877-504-0233.

Thanks,

Lots of guys are now running un-regulated Li-po set ups with 8711's now.
Zero problems.

Thanks for the info Wayne.

Cool beans Rob, I am setting up a 35% and will first try 5955 on rudder but may need the 8711. I already had the 5955 and am on a budget. Give me a call sometime.
