When the APM is powered from the RC equipment what is the acceptable voltage range?  I know it's ~ 5 volts, but 5 volts +/- what?

Typical RC servo/radio power is anywhere from 4.5 to 6 volts.  Will 6 volts be too much?  What about 5.5 volts?


Typically a ~5 volt component will be rated for something like 5 volts, +/- 5% or +/- 10% like the Amtel 2560 chip.  A bit more is usually OK, but strange/intermittent  things can happen as the limits are pushed.

4.5 to 6 should be fine.
