99% sure im getting that one. but still looking around.

so with the high voltage servo what does that mean? do i have to run it with a lipo or just with a 5cell hump pack so i can run my normal throttle servo?

also would be running it with my elec buggy so how would that work?

If you went with a HV Savox or any HV steering servo, you can run a unregulated 2s lipo pack. You wont be able to run a non HV throttle servo with this set up.

If you went with a HV servo with a hump NiMh pack you can run it but it will not reach it's max potential. Fully charged hump pack can reach 6.8-7.1 volts while a fully charged 2s lipo is 8.4V..

+1000 4 SAVOX!

so if i were to use like a losi regulater could i still use the HV steering and the normal throttle? or does that also cut the power down?

You could run the regulator from the throttle port on the reciever to the throttle servo and that would cut the voltage down just to the throttle servo and with the LiPo running full juice to the reciever and your high voltage steering servo. It would just be easier running 2 high voltage servos instead of 1 HV and 1 standard though. I saw that Hitec is selling cheaper HV 5 thousand series servos on Amain that would be good for throttle if your worried about cost.

The savox stuff rocks I have been using the 1268 on steering and throttle with straight lipo since Oct/Nov without issues. If you arent going HV then save a little $$ and use the 1256. If you plan on going HV then get the 1268 the specs are almost the same on 6v as the 1256. Savox gives a great bang for your buck.

1268

I run HV servos in both E cars a savox 1268 in the E Bug and a hitec 7950 in the E truggy. Im using a MMM as well. You can bump the voltage up with the castle link if you want

Sorry but where is that setting? I looked at Castle Link and cant seem to find it.
I'm running a couple of Savox's in my RC's and would like to know if I run into any problems.

Thanks.
