90 Size heli - Align 610 servos - Align 2 and 1 Regulator - will this work
Hi guys

I'm a little confused and I keep on getting different answers from different people.

Im building a Trex700 and am going to be running Align 610's servos on it. I have a spare Align 2 in 1 regulator lying around so was thinking of using that. Yes I know all of the stories I here of them causing problems but I have had them on both my Raptors and Trex 600 and they have worked great.

My biggest concern is the current draw of fast digital servos. I read that the modern fast servos can have a peak current draw of 2 Amps so having 3 of them working hard plus all the other servos and electronics etc it looks as if its going to exceed the 6 AMP limit of the regulator.
Yes I know people are going to say buy a Arizona or SGR etc and I do have lined up to buy if I have to but I have the Align sitting there owing me nothing and my other one seems to work perfect.

Also I dont want to run the servos at 8 Volts unregulated. 6V is plenty.

Do any of you guys fly with this setup or similar??
Any issues??

I appreciate your input.

Cheye

This is a concern with the 8717's in particular, I do not think the Align 610's are in that category. Look at this way, Align packages heli's with 610 servos and the 2-in-1. Shows me they at least believe in the 2-in-1 in that configuration.

1 down, 9 more opinions to go...

i just started with the align 610's so far so good.. they seem to be very nice servos considering your not paying that premium price for them.. the one thing i dont like about them .. they are loud chattery servos..

I have had a DS610 where electronics broke.
There is an enormous amount of vibration that is transferred to the servos on a T700, since it is the same framework both the servos and engine sits on.

Check this thread out which has actual current draw data for the 8717s http://www.runryder.com/t537216p1/?highlight=8717+draw

The main 3 servos peaked around 3.5 amps so add another amp for the rest of the electronics and you will be fine with the align servos and 2 and 1 especially for what you need it for. Just make sure there is no binding.

I am running flybarless with 8717s and the draw is not huge.

Been flying my 700 Nitro with DS610's everywhere, except the tail where I use a Futaba S9254 with the GY520 gyro.

The DS610's are noisy at home on the bench, but they work just fine on this heli and they seem to work very well at up to 8 volts. I like them so far!

I'm useing Hitec Servos, HS5625MG For cyclic, and HS5475 for Throttle, and running an Modified Align 2-in-1, and a 3600Mah 2Slipo. Futaba 611 w/9256, and a westen robotics tail step down regulator. This is on a Raptor 50 Titan. Works great, so far.

http://servocity.com/html/hs-5625mg_digital_speed.html

The Hitec servos, are only $54.00 each, and are great.
131oz. tork, and 14.sec @6v. Fast and plenty strong, unless your a Extreme 3D Master Going for the Gold Metal, like 90% of the pilots here. Most think if it's not the most expensive it just want work.
