One of our pilots has been running 3 Align DS650's on 8V for the past 6 months. 2 on rudder and 1 on throttle.

The servos have held up will and not had any issues. The 3 servos have in excess of 500 flights.

Although we can't recommend running them at 8V as they are mfg. rated up to 6V only, we can report that in this case there has not been any issues.

^^^This is probably a pilot who knows how to balance a heli, tune an engine and mount a gyro, to Joe Public I would not recommened it as vibration will kill it at that voltage!

60% of the time, it works every time!

I have no reason to in the same way I have no reason to charge a li-po higher than the manufacturer recommends or run a nitro motor at higher rpm than the manufacturer recommends etc etc. I did once run a DS620 on regulated 6v and it burned out rather quickly, never again. 5v on tail servos for me from then on.

I don't see the reason to risk a model and peoples safety for the sake of convenience.
