Those of you running 8717's, what type of on-board power supply are you running (regulator and battery)?

Thank you all in advance.

8717

I am using the Align 2 in 1 which comes with a 1900mh lipo battery, Running the 8717 servo's and the JR 770T, I am using about 155mh's per flight. I checked the power and it is 5.75 volts to the servo's, and receiver. I have stepdowns on my throttle servo 8417 and on the rudder servo 8900. It works well.
On my other heli, I am using a SGP reactor which I believe is 5.6 volts to the cyclic and 4,8 to the receiver, I am also using a 2200 TP 2cell pack of 7.4 volts. It works extremely well

Hope this helps

8717

Well I broke down and purchased 3, 8717 for my Synergy. I am running Duralite 4000mah with arizona reg. I am going to run the servos at 6volts and step the gyro down to 4.8(611). I will post my results. It seems this might be an alright setup....
