Hello,

Would a 13.5V DC 2.8A power supply fry my MST motor? Should I put a resistor inline to drop it to 12v?

Battery/12v PS would require heroic effort to obtain before tomorrow morning. I'm trying to work with what I have; a constrictive budget/schedule.

Thank you,

It should be OK.
A 12V battery pack when fully charged can have 13.5V to 14.0V and it doesn't harm the motor.

Cheers,
Jean-Louis

I'm shooting under 400ft tomorrow, so I guess I should be OK.

Thank you for your reply.
