Default Futaba servo ? / NIMH Battery???

I have a 6 volt NiMh hooked up to a Futaba S3010 servo.
Why does the box it came it say Ni-Cd use only???

I would guess because NiMh were not in common use when the S3010 was first released. I have used them with NiMh batteries without problem.

The first generation of NiMH couldn't deliver the amps because they had a high internal resistance. Thats when that warning was written.

Modern quality cells don't have that problem.
