Hi,

I've just put a Arizona reg in my Rap50 and I'm running a 9255 on pitch, 9252's on cyclic and a 9254 on the throttle. What's a safe voltage to set the Arizona at for the 9254 ? I know the others will take 6v or should I swap the 9254 for 6v acceptable servo ?

Simon.

When you say 6v is that regulated
Remember look at the servos specs from Futaba
http://www.futaba-rc.com/servos/servos.html

Also remeber any battery when is charged and not going thru regulator
it has .2 to .5 higher voltage.

It will be regulated through the Arizona Regulator.

I ran mine at 5.8 volts. 9254s do fail especially if they get oil in them from the fuel.

Technically, none of those servos are rated for 6V. With that said, I have an Evo 50 with a very similar setup. I run the Arizona at 5.4V and have never had a problem. I know people that run them at 5.8 and don't have an issue. So, there you go.

Unless your using the "kiwi", you'll be fine. The Arizona reg keeps the gyro and gyro servo voltage the same regardless of what you set the voltage to.

I know the gyro connections on the Arizona is set at 5v but I'm runig a 9254 on the throttle.

I'll set the reg to about 5.3v to start with see how it goes.

Note that he is using it on *THROTTLE*, so your comment about voltage to the *GYRO* is not relevant . . . . .

Just learning to read.

9254 is good for.... Well 4.8 volts per Futaba. but I run mine at 5.3 with no problems (on the tail).

IMO - get a 3151 for the throttle and don't worry about the voltage.

9254 is rated at 4.8 volts, which means a 4 cell NiCd, which fully charged is up in the mid 5 volts. Therefore running it at 5.4 to 5.8 volts should be fine, even 6 volts regulated should be OK. A 6v servo is suitable for a 5 cell NiCd pack, which runs a higher voltage than 6v, nearer 7 volts fully charged, which will fry a 9254.

Right 5.28v thats as close as I can get to 5.3v That will do.

The 9254 will fail sooner or later on any computer controlled application at more than 5.8V

Computer controlled application = gyro and governor

I burned my share of them on both positions (tail and throttle).

As long as the voltage is set to 6.0 volts or less, the 9253/54 will run fine on this voltage, especially on throttle which won't work the servo very hard like a tail gyro would. I ran 53's and 54's like this for years and still use them on throttle if I need to.

Lets not even go that route or we will have here a 10 page long discussion... he wants to use a 9254 and just asked about the safe voltage range.

Tony

PS - I'm pretty much against the use of high speed servos on throttle. Been there, done that and I learned my lesson.

Ok so whats a good throttle servo then, that I can run a higher voltage along with the 9252's and 9255 ? I'm using a TJ Pro if that makes any difference.

any servo will do as long as it can cope with the vibes and isn't too fast (anything between 0.1 and 0.2 is fine).

Personally, I choose the lightest servo I can get away with. I've used the mini futaba 3155 with good success (6V, metal gear). Lately Im also using hitecs mico 85HB with similar results. even a cheap 3152 will do althoug it develops some slop after some use
