Default HPP-21 Overload

Hi,

I am using the HPP-21 programmer and it has an Overload facility which reads:
"Overload Protection Out-put Power Rate (%)" then "Off 10 20 30 40 50"

The problem is, I would like to enable Overload Protection but exactly what am I setting here? a percentage of what? What's the best value to use?

Yours
Pete

PS Sorry if this has been asked before.

You are setting how much you want the servo to reduce power in the event it gets overloaded so that it does not burn itself out. When the load is reduced to the servo then it will go back to it's normal settings. Whats the application that you are using the servo in?

Hi Brendan, Thanks for the reply. I am using HS5085 servos in a Vector 3 moulded aerobatic glider (2.3 metre span) on ailerons (1 each side) I am also using HS5245s on the flaps (1 each) and elevator. I have heard reports that some 5085s have overloaded and burnt out (it's one thing for that to happen on the ground and quite another for it to happen in the air!!! ).
So I was hoping that by enabling Overload Protection that I could reduce/eliminate the possibility of this happening and if so, what value to use?

It's the newer G2 7xxx series servos that have overload protection. The 5xxx series do not.
