Hi

I'm very new to Futaba gyro's, I bought a GY601 + matching servo combo for a good price.

I have an Align 2in1 Voltage regulator running of a 7.2V 2200mah 20C lipo.

What I would like to know is would I need a step down before the amplifier of the gyro, if so which lead should have it on? (initial thoughts points to Rudder input)

However the gyro is rated 6v. So do I need to add a stepdown or not if i plan to use the align regulator.
Also servo seems to be not rated for 6v, do the gyro control amp have a voltage regulator to the servo or do I need to add a step-down between the amp and servo?

I would run a step down, run it between the amp and the servo.

The gyro and amp are fine on 6v, but to run the servo at 5.1 it has to be hooked to the servo otherwise the amp will get 5.8v from either the gain lead or the rudder lead.

Optionally, you can disconnect the red wire of the gain lead and step down before the amp but thats more work and not needed
