Im about to set up my 3G, are you guys using a step down on the tail servo? In some of the install pics Ive seen on here it doesnt look like there is a step down. I am using a 9256 servo.

If you are using this servo, don't run it over 5.1v. So if you are running 6v or 8v on the RX you will need a step down.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter

Does anyone know what the Align 5.1 stepdown regulator circuit consists of? A single series diode will only drop the voltage .6 or .7 volts..

The step-down is just a simple diode so it only drops 0.6v. Last summer I got rid of my step-down and installed a separate BEC for the rudder servo. That way I can run any voltage to the receiver and the rudder servo always gets 5V.
