6.0v with S3004 servos question

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hello All I have a question about using the Futaba S3004 servos with a 5 cell 6.0v NiMH battery.
does a fully charged battery of this type emit slightly more than 6v and if so will that affect this servo?
Futaba website doesn't say anything just that has X torque at 4.8 or 6V

Re: 6.0v with S3004 servos question

typically fully charged is 1.4 Volts per cell, times five is 7V, not enough to worry about as they quickly drop to 1.25V per cell

higher voltage will increase the speed and torque but reduce the life of a servo, but you said s3004 so I'm guessing you don't care too much about long servo life

Futaba made a few servos specifically for 4 cells, this is not one of them

then servos
then analog servos

Don't even worry about it!
you don't need CNC if you are handy with a torch.
