I'm a little confused here. Can I simply use the CC bec, and udjust the castle link, thus producing higher voltages, or is this wrong?

Correct Im cunfused, or correct I can use the CC BEC link adjustment accordingly?

You can adjust the output voltage with the CC. Link.

Will the DS-620 servo accept higher voltage?

What do you mean by higher voltage, over 6 volts?

Will the ds-620 hold up well on 6v or better?

You shouldn't have a problem on 6 volts, It's rated for it.

As you all probably already know, the Hirobo Lepton Tail is a little on the weak side. During hard punch outs the tail lets go just a wee bit. It is caused by improper gearing in the tail.

Getting to my point. This is the speed of the servo:Motion speed:0.09sec/60°(4.8V) 0.07sec/60°(6.0V)

Is there a noticeable difference between 0.09 sec and 0.07 sec when switching to 6.0 volts?

The servo will notice the difference. At 6 volts besides a gain in speed you will be adding torque to it, that makes it easier for the servo to attain that speed.

My LHS has the link and adjusted my CC to 6v, no charge.

That's cool. CC sent my link to me, free of charge with the online coupon.

I probably wouldn't allow my hobby shop to adjust voltages for me. They might tweak it on you, just to watch you burn out your gear, and then they get another sale......Something to think about

Should this servo show signs of more heat to the touch at 6.0v then a normal 4.8v set up? And will this heat shorten the life of the servo much faster?

Thanks

it would get slightly higher due to more voltage but its rated at that voltage so should last fine of course the servo wont last as long as on 4.8v but still longer then you will use it for

Yeah, I don't have a thermo tach, but it is coming down noticabley warmer at 6.0v vs. 4.8. But the tail is holding very well now with the faster speed of the servo.

Good luck dealing with the Lepton tail. All my mates gave up on theirs & sold for T-Rex 500's.

They tried longer booms, bigger tails, speed up gears etc on the Lepton. None of it made a difference.

I'm pretty exstatic about mine. The faster servo, and longer tail blades have really made a great tail set up. I think I'm lacking in the gyro performance dept. with the 401, and plan to upgrade.

Thanks

If the issue on the Lepton is that the tail doesn't spin quick enough, I don't see why correcting the gearing shouldn't fix the problem.

If it doesn't spin fast enough, and you add a faster tail servo and better gyro, it still won't spin fast enough though. I'd look at correcting the problem, rather than slapping band-aids on it. jmo.

If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

Technically, if the OEM tail gears aren't enough, then installing a different gear is just as much as a band-aid as a new servo/gyro. It just costs less
