Default Digital servos

If I use a NiMH battery pack for my Futaba S9451 digital servos will that harm them in any way??

Heh, I know why you're asking.
I own two of those.

Futaba, on their packaging state that you MUST USE Alkaline Batteries with your new Futaba Digital Servo.
What they ACTUALLY mean is DO NOT use NiCd battereies with your new Futaba Digital Servo.

Digital Servos have an insane current draw wich NiCd batteries cannot handle. NiMh can. So you're ok.
And you do want a 5 cell (6v) pack.

Heh, the servo packaging (S9451) says "use NiCd batteries only", nothing mentioned about alkaline batteries. So, will a 1200mah 6.0V NiMh battery pack work without any problems??

Woops.. I'm a moron.. yes.. I meant NiCd battereies...
the Futuba Digital servos will NOT work with Alkaline battereies.. that's the point.. but instead of stating that they state use niCds..
you can of course also use NiMh battereies.
