I've been looking at the new LiPo batteries and a have a few questions that I'd like answered before I make the investment.
Most of the packs that I've seen for sale are 7.2 v. The regualtors available at the hobby store drop the voltage down to either 5.7v or 65.0 v. I have a JR 5000t gyro that says in the instructions that you can supply no more than 4.8 v to the gyro or it will cease to function. We actually called Horizon Tech Support and they verified that the gyro would not function properly at ah higher voltage.
Here is my question. I would like to make use of the higher speed and holding power of running at a higher voltage but of course don't want to have a flaky gyro. Who has dealt with this already? If so how? Has any one put an inline voltage regulator between the receiver and the Gyro controller, Does it corrupt or alter the signal?
