futaba S3305 servo
I just bought this servo last weekend, one of the guys behind the counter at my LHS suggested it, it puts out 99oz at 4.8v and it was a pretty good value. The catch, as I found out when I got home is that the small print on the case suggests that it's only for Nicads, I did some digging and found out that the reason for this is that Futaba warns that the servos consume a lot of current and Nimhs won't provide enough of it to properly operate them.
Has anyone else ran into this problem. I mean what's up with that?! Not many people run Nicads competitively anymore, and they're becoming harder to find.
Don't the newer 3000, 3300, and now the 3600 cells put out enough current to equal nicads?
