runs well on 6v in my Protos. Can't see why 2s would be a problem.

I have been running both of my machines using the 6008HS on 8 volts for 2 months now. A lot of flights too with absolutely no issues. I would not hesitate.

Yes. I have run all Futaba 2.4 receivers on 8 volts. I have been doing this for over a year. No problems.

How are you guys lowering the voltage to the gyro servo on a 8v setup?

well.. go ahead and use that stepdown on a non-regulated lipo setup and see how long your tail servo lasts. Then be sure to let us know as i'm not willing to be the guinea pig sending 7 volts to my expensive 5V tail rotor servos. Ideally you'd just use a tail rotor servo that will handle 2S lipo or A123 voltages and not have to worry about it but that's not the question at hand.

Or... lets see, you need to knock down basically 7.5 volts to say 5 volts, so you need to drop 2.5 volts. I guess you can buy three of those align stepdowns and hook them all up? I'd rather pay the extra 12 bucks and have less wire in the heli and have true regulated voltage to the tail rotor servo.

Hornet Dave...just use the Spektrum 5203 step down for the gyro and tail servo.

yup that is a regulator, as is the one I linked.

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm dave

60 flights and not a glitch. tails rock solid.
been flying the crap out of it, to see if dave's untested knowalage of align stepdown on lipo voltage is correct. NOT..... servo dont even get warm. and when i test my output to servo it reads 5.3v. so i wondering why dave put his two cents in without true knowalage of this setup. guess some people just feel the need to post. funny i think.

edit - there's so many directions I can go on this issue. I'll take the high road and stop feeding the trolls.

hint - open up that align step-down and see what's inside. You may discover why your 5.1 volt "regulator" is putting out 5.3 volts.

Does this "all ways" give 5V to the gyro/tail, or is it depending on how many Voltage you put in front of it (8V, 6V etc.)?

I don't know about the Ron Lund reg, but the align is a one volt step down. 6 volts in = 5 volts out. 8 volts in = 7 volts out. On unregulated lipo voltage you are nowhere near 5 volts after the align step down. I prefer the Arizona Kiwi regulator. It has a pass through(8volts) for the cyclic servos and regulated 5 volts for everything else.
