I'm willing to use a 6014 FS on my scale heli. It's a large one, so I'm going to use HV Futaba servos. Does anybody knows which is the tolerated voltage from that RX?
Some people told me that up to 2S there's no problem, but I see now HV (62XX series) RX coming out and I just don't want to burn the electronics.
Thanks
Luigi

From the Futaba manual it states...
Power requirement: 4.8V or 6.0V...
I would thus see running the R6014FS receiver with a HV system as risky. As you have said, the 62XX receivers are HV rated.

With the time and money that goes into a scale bird, dont take any chances, use a HV receiver.

This question has been asked a lot. It is true that Futaba "officially" says that the limit is volts, yet there are a very large number of people who have used this RX with unregulated 2S lipos. I personally have tested this RX using a freshly charged 3S lipo and a 2 amp load. No issues.

Then you have this answer from Bill Baxter about using unregulated 2S lipo with the 6014 RX:
Futaba has it limited to 6.0V, still. 7.4V will not damage the receiver, though.

Using a 2s pack is perfectly acceptable, no issues.

And if you want no worries, go 2S LiFePO4.
