Default 5985 Overvoltage

I had four 5985 servos exposed to about 7.5 volts through a dead or defective voltage regulator. Total exposed time was maybe 5 minutes with very little operation, mostly setup movement. We caught the problem when checking battery voltage / amp draw on the system.

They all appear to function fine. In fact we flew the aircraft on a maiden flight with a new regulator. It didn't really dawn on me to worry about the servos until later.

Do I need to worry?

If the servos seem to work well and the model range checks, it's all good IMO.
