Aloha guys & gals. My question is can I run my servos on 6v off the stock Align ESC? My cyclic servos are Hitec 5245mg and tail is a Futaba 9650. Both are rated up to 6v. I was thinking of reprogramming the ESC to 6v to up the servo speed. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

as long as your servos can handle it you will be fine also make sure the gyro can handle 6v

a 401 can handle it. It's the tail servos used with a 401 that may or may not be able to operate at 6 volts.

For example, your 9650 can use 6V, but my 9257 can not.

Thank you for the helps guys! Muucho appreciated. Now the onlt thing I need to sort is a twitching tail that started yesterday. Belts tight enough and nothing else has been changed. Weird.
