Default Adding aaa's for the servo/reciever.

Right now I have a JR 550 servo and the specs arn't that great. My keyence esc puts out 6v to the servo/reciever. Would adding a aaa battery(1.5v) by plugging it into the reciever battery port Up torque and speed? Or would it damage my other electronincs?

Torque: 62 oz/in at 6V
Speed: .17 sec/60 at 6V
Dimensions: 0.73 x 1.52 x 1.32in
Weight: 1.50 oz
Bearing: Single
Motor Type: 3-pole ferrite

Cheers.

That doesn't sound right to me.

Wouldn't you risk "charging" the 1.5v cell with the 6v ESC supply? The 1.5v cell would be in parallel with the ESC supply, not in series.

Obviously, you're going beyond JR's recommended voltage, and probably the recommended receiver voltage too.

If you want to experiment with 7.2v RX supplys, I would have thought a 6-cell pack made of 1/3AAA's would be the best bet - and removing the ESC red wire from the plug.

Good point, I hadn't though of it in that context.
