Hello,

Who is running the 610s on 2S lipos? And have you had any problems with it?

I am running it and I am having elevator servo problems. Last week, with brand new servos, on the 3rd flight the heli just flipped twice forward on its on. I was able to safe land it. Upon inspection the elevator servo was feeling weak.

I have replaced it and again today I could see the heli falling on the elevator axis. On smooth pitch alterations the helis was falling backwards.

I'm now considering a CCBEC pro...

Note: I checked the Vbar log after the 1st failure and it had no vibes issue. I did not check the Vbar log yet after the 2Nd failure.

iKon, because I am connected to my heli, are you?

I think the align DS610 are rated for 6.0 volt, you might be burning it up. I personally use the regulator to 6.0volt. That being said I have read about guys using the DS 610 with out regulator and had no issues and no performance increase.
To me if you are not getting any performance increase why jeopardize your heli for a $40 regulator.

That is what I was trying to do. :/ I will get a CCBEC.

ive got about 7 gallons on my 610s with direct 2cell power with great results.

my bird is rocksolid, i would not hesitate to run 610s on 8.5 volts on my next bird.

I have pondered the same thing and decided to use a LiFe pack at 6.6 straight instead of straight lipo

How hot are your servos after flight? OR do you know how hot they are during?

I tried straight 2cell lipo on the bench moving both stick around for a couple minutes and they got HOT! fast. I would never trust Align 610's on 8.4v after that!!

I did do a couple flights at 7.4 volts and the cyclics were noticably faster than at 6 volts so I would disagree that there is no performance gain

Yeap, they got hot pretty fast. I will add a regulator to the setup.

Many run 610s on 2s no prob... I had 100s of flights on them in the past without any issues. Didn't get any hotter than some HV servos I run now. They certainly aren't rated for 2s but neither were the 8717s when everyone started running them 2s starting the 2s craze

@ Gladiator - Did the regulator fix your problem, and did you notice any difference?

I think he just purchased some hv servos today as a work around.
I run the 610 on 2s for about 2 years now. They work great and don't get any hotter than when I did run them on 6v for a short while.

Not sure what's going on with yours gladiator but you did have 3 servos die on your crash. Something on that system is cooking them.

Yeap... I decided to buy JR 8917HV. After many days thinking of it, I was no longer comfortable running the DS610 on HV and also did not want to install another piece of electronic.

So... JR HV here we go.

Thanks guys!

EDIT: I wish I could open one of these DS610s and compare with yours Rilopez. This 700N is smooth as butter. I spoke to HoP and they think there is a new line/production batch or something of DS610s.

Its possible they made a changes to the current 610s to be less resistant to higher voltages so they can push out the New HV servos.
