Default 256hv

hey guys i just picked this up for my tail servo...whats the highest voltage i can run. I know its geared for 7.2 v or 2s lipo, however my kosmik BEC can go up to 8.3v. in comparison to the bls251 i have always used @6 volts...is it ok to go higher on this as well.

The Futaba HV servos are optimized to work on nominal lipo 2S voltage. Though there is nothing expressly forbidden about running them on the equivalent of a hot off charge 2S lipo voltage, my recommendation would be to run them around 7.4v. The new WR BEC's actually have this voltage range option.
