I ask the question because one my friend said Life need a regulator?!!
For years I use them with no problem on my jets and glider...
The Joker servo are HV one but I will not run them at 7.2 V ...after all the comment (thanks you)
I will still use the LiFe with out regulator.

No Worries, Id still be inclined to find out what servo model they are so you know what the servos is capable of torque wise and to know it operating voltage. Etc

Any way, Happy Flying.

they would just run slower in that way
a brownout may be caused if the regulator is not able to handle the Amperes that all servos are requiring

l' avantage des accus LiFe c'est surtout pour ne pas utiliser un régulateur comme pour les LiPo.
tu peux dire de ma part à ton colègue q' il est un vrai ignorant

The plane is sold with servos installed by CARF. The brand isn’t named on their site but they are HV. You might have just gotten a bad servo. It happens.

Or , binding in the linkage, hence the servo being noisy prior to burn up

A 6V Nimh or NiCad fully charged is around 7.2-7.4 volts. A fully charged A123 is around 7.0-7.1 volts. So just because an A123 has a nominal voltage higher than a 6v traditional battery, be careful when comparing them because a Nimh is putting more initial volts to your servo than an A123 when you start out the day fully charged. I use A123 in many planes with 6v servos and never has any issues without a regulator.
