Default Ok to fly with bec pro at 5.1v? (DS610/DS620/AR7200BX)

Hey, I'm just going over my final setup and want to know if I will run into any issues if I were to hover with my bec pro set to 5.1v vs 6v with the align servos. I just want to make sure I don't have any vibrations so I can clean up the wiring. Do I have to change any settings in the AR7200BX if I do this? I don't have a castle link yet.

Your good but it will slow the tail servo, get the link and get the voltage up. I run all align series servos at 6.5.

I am running 5.1 with futaba 9452 with no issues. If you have a cc ecs you will have issues with throttle calibration and the ar7200bx. You have to power up the rx first. There is a thread in here somewhere I'll try and find it . It had me stumped for hours. untill helifreak saved the day.

thanks for the replies guys, maybe I should just wait until my CC ICE 100 comes and use the programming link.

Is this the link I have to follow in order to get my AR7200BX to work correctly with the Castle ESC? or are any different methods?

I'm running my 610s, 620 and 7200bx at 6.6 volts. Many on here have had great success with 6.6volts

Also I don't have any issues with my throttle calibration on my ice 100.
I use auto rotate mode and arm the esc with the "throttle cut"button on my DX6i.

I flew mine for 3 months at 5.1 with the same setup except for beastx with an ar8000 rx.
