I have recently bought a Black Horse Typhoon and with it some NewPower XL-37HB servos. The servos are rated between 4.8V and 6V. I also have a sub-C 4600 5 cell NiMh battery. I brought this battery as the plane has 9 servos and I dont want them to drain it in the first 5 minutes!

My question is: As the full after charge voltage of the battery is greater than 6V is this going to fry my servos?

When they say 4.8 to 6v i believe they are refering to either a 4.8 or 6v nicad you'll be fine with what you have
