They're for any 7.2v servo that comes with a seperate power wire (KO are the only people that make them as far as I know).

hey,

is it possible to wire up a standard 6.0v servo to receive 7.2v? could we direct wire the + and/or - to the battery and leave the signal lead from the receiver alone?

anyone?

i've seen some people splicing the +ive to the battery/esc. will this work to "supercharge" a servo?

Yeah it is possible, just pickup a "choke" from radioshack? (Not american, guessing where you can get one) then just wire that to the + and take the red wire from the servo plug and connect it to the choke, Hi performance from a budget servo, simple!

what does the choke do?

i just hardwired in, and it seemed to work. what are the repercussions to omitting the choke?

i did have some electronic problems this past weekend, but they were sporadic, so i don't believe them to be a result of my mod.

I believe it stops line noise and a surge in voltage going to the servo. Thinking about it, putting a cap on the line would probably have a similar effect.
