    Your servo has a max of 6 volts, your Rx on the other hand has a max of 9 volts. Always check the Servo Voltage rating and the Rx Voltage rating before programming your BEC and use the lowest rating as a Max Voltage input. So in your case 6 Volts Max form BEC... The Amp draw from your Servo is what's causing the brown outs 99% sure. Savox doesn't give an Amp rating on their web site, but a 10 Amp BEC is the cure...

    It should work fine, but it will be a little slower and not have as much torque...
