Default Power options for the power bus

Just goit a 720/w power bus for my new 12S 6hv build. I'll be running the servos @ 6V. I was hoping everything could be run off the BEC at 6V. Is that possible ?

720 docs say 5 - 10V, power bus says 7.2 ?


Only got the power bus for conveniece at this point, and the possibilty of changing to HV servos later.

If it runs without the powerbus at 6 volts, then it will run with the powerbus at 6 volts. You have nothing to worry about...

I run power bus directly to 2S lipo and another one to a BEC at 8.2V. No problem.
