...but in actuality, I've never experienced a brown out from the 1080, even running a much more demanding servo (2290) so I'd personally take that risk.
Thanks for the Info. The xl5 died along with the steering servo but I didnít realize until I installed the 1080 and didnít have steering. So now I have to wait another day until I can get it running. Hopefully my other servos, the motor or the receiver donít go when I take it out ahaha or else Iíd probably have to set it on fire

I'm building my trx right now, and I have a 1080 to put in it. Will the extra couple amps from the 1080 wake up the stock steering servo?
I assume turning up the BEC on the 1080 from 6v to 7.4v will ruin all the stock servos?

Stock servo is only rated to 6v. It might not burn up immediately but it's not gonna last long
