Does any one know if the HeliCommand Rigid system can be powered with 2S 7.2 volts? It was my hope to run an unregulated system in my Vario Bell 47 G-3.

Thanks Tony:

I have the 2.2 and I just found the voltage info. My instructions are in german only. So much for a high voltage system!

Richard, the link to the English manual
http://www.helicommand.com/index.ph...=104〈=en

Operating voltage: 4,8 ... 6 Volt (4 ... 5 NiXx)

For the "old" HC Rigid, unfortunately Tony is fully right you can't go higher than 6 V, so NO Lipo 2S for your system

The new HC-X-serie includes a 2s LiPo capacity

See user manual Captron VERSION 4.0
Supply voltage: 4...10V (2S-LiPo-compatible, min. 5.5V using Spektrum/JR satellites)

If you want a 3 axis system that will work at 7.2v try the
skookum 720 that,s alright upto 8.5v.

Thanks guys for the replies. Tony you are right about the Skookum 720 I have one in my Seaking and it is rated for HV applications. I am going to keep the rigid in the G-3 and keep it at 6v. I have just purchased a HC3X for another project it will be an all unregulated HV system.
