Logictech LTG-6100t
I am using a logictech ltg-6100t gyro, with a 6100g servo, do I need to run a step down with gyro and servo setup?

yes. If your running 6v put a step down inbetween your gyro and reciever. That will regulate both the gyro and servo. I believe the 6100 is rated for 5.5v max, and the servo 4.8v. Normally I would run 6v to the gyro and a step down for the servo, but there are reported failures of the acctual gyro on 6v.

The gyro will take 5.5 volts and the servo 4.8 volts. I would use a step down in front of the gyro and run both of them on 5.1 volts or run the whole system on 5 volts, It really depends on your system.

I have tested both 6100G and 9256 at 6v. Their lifespan shortened to about 100 flight +/- 20%. However, running them at 5.4v or lower, I have never experience a servo failure.

If you experience a failure using 6v within few flights, it most likely would have failed at 5.0v also. Running at 6v shortens the life but does not kill it instantly.
