Yes this servo will work for any reciever, HOWEVER you will need to switch out the plugs (solder on your own plugs). The plug that HK uses only works with their HK receivers, no problem, just solder on your own plug. Hope this helps!
Ron , theyre only for the Durafly f3a and edge ,i chose the 4ch micro rx without considering the need to Y plus the cables are pretty short on these.
Other projects are small rubber powered simple conversions and a few other bitsnbobs :D
I personally do not own a Walkera Genius but from reading the Genius instructions those are two gram servos and these are 1.7g which means that may work but I would purchase the original servos from Walkera to replace any damage or broken Genius servos. On the other had, if you replace all three with these servos you would save .9g and could add a slightly larger battery for increased flight times.
Do not fit in Genius smaller in height and a bit larger need to modify the main frame of the helicopter in order to make them fit. I prefer walkera original ones than this, you can buy also them at a nice price. Now I have 3 micro servos that I will not use.
I could not find Y cables for the mini JST plugs but they do carry the male and female extensions. Making you own would be the least amount of weight and remove the plastic housing around the servo too.
Yep. Works great with the Orange RX. No mods and no changes! (I bought some of those.)
So the magic thing that comes from this, is that it is a drop in replacement for just about any non-spektrum micro. (9 Eagles, Mini-air, Just about any plane using the micro servos that is not spektrum the OrangeRX works in.)
Will be ordering more.
Conversely, if you replaced any spektrum components on the PZ planes with these, you will have to change the polarity.
Paul, I ran 3 on 10A ESC with 1A BEC to run a micro Extra300 with no problems. These are very strong for their size and dont get gummed up like exposed linear micro servos. Hope this helps and Happy Flying!
Yes will be fine! This is the servo used for the Edge 540 V3 490 MM Micro Plane. It is PNP and runs 4 of these servos fine. You have to remember that the peak current is not normaly used unless in a crash or trying to drive the control past its limits. Also flight time is only 4 minutes.
If you do feel up for soldering? It's easier to dip tiny wires in a small drop of solder both to tin them and join them. Once I got used to the technique I have actually found that the best heat sources are an old rusty chisel-tip, that you dip in flux, or a small torch with a mold. I find stripping the wires more difficult than joining them!
Yes, it is OK. It is not what the battery is rated for, but what the BEC is putting out from your ESC. Most likely, you could run a 6S battery with a 50A ESC. Most all servos and RXs are designed to function between 3v to 5v and from 2A to 6A which practically every ESC's BEC puts out it's power within this range. Hope this helps!
For what it's worth, I use this servo in combination with a plush 6A ESC and R415 Rx on both 2S _and_ 3S with no issues - just a faster plane *-)). The ESC limits the voltage so you're Rx isn't overloaded and the servos get power from the Rx so there should be no worries.
Hey John, I use the Turnigy Nano-Tech 2S and 3S 180 mAh 25C lipos. I've used both the ones with the e-flite ends on them as well as, and now exclusively, the ones with the JST connectors. The 3S ones are "PRODUCT ID: 9210000035". The 2S ones are "PRODUCT ID: 9210000023".
These servos do not carry the CE-logo on manufacturer ON THE ITEM. Thus, they have been rejected by German customs and will most likely be rejected by other european countries!
Please HK put a sticker on the item like you do with the 2g micro servos, otherwise we cannot import them!
ACHTUNG: Meine Bestellung wurde vom Zoll nicht ins Land gelassen und wurde zurü*ckgeschickt, da die Herteller- und CE-Kennzeichnung AUF DEM ARTIKEL fehlt.
Odd, I never had problems due to missing CE stickers. Ways to go arround this: Argument that it is a replacement part for a model which HAS the CE sticker. You can tell them that you can show them the declaration of comformity for the spare parts provided by hobbyking. www.link (Or google TGY-1550A.pdf )
You should stay friendly but determined, and argue that you order and repair models regularly, and that if they do not hand out your
ya, it seems that it's a new regulation ans the customs people have been to spaecial trainings and are now really up to date concerning the CE-stuff. Nonetheless I will try with the dec. of conformity, although i doubt it'll work..
IF you issue the CE sticker - or print the certificate, I do not see why not. Here a discussion (german) with a few documents attached to a reply on the bottom of page 1 www.link you somehow manage to get it categorized as something different then the listed www.link
I have built several small micro indoor epp planes with theese servos and aside from pulling 1 apart while trying to disassemble one of the planes i have had great luck with them as they are a little more that twice as powerfull as the servos on the ar6400 boards.
I know that this product is out of stock, but you may want to order the "HK-282 Ultra-Micro Servo 2.2g" (PRODUCT ID: HKM-282). It is only slightly larger (1mm - 2mm in most dimensions). I do not have any experience with these servos and they do cost more. However if they are anywhere near as good as these little orange ones, they will be a great alternative for you. If they have the CE label.
That sounds as if the German customs are trying to block HK imports - I've had two orders arrive through British customs and there was no problem. I have also heard that they are refusing parcels unless they have a paypal invoice as well as the HK one (check in the forum for the 'anti-competetive behaviour' thread)
Yes, this would be good in planes with an 18" wingspan or less... perhaps up to 24" wingspan if it is only a slowflyer. Paired with the OrangeRx R415 receiver and a micro geared power system (Product=17156) it would work very well indeed.
Yes, it will work with the 35mm series jets if you ordered them Ready To Fly I believe. Simply look at the connector ends and as long as they are the same you're good to go. I used the HobbyKing 4.3g servos with an OrangeRx 6ch caseless receiver for my PNP jets. Hope that helps.
Hobby King is using these servos for the Durafly Edge 540 Micro 3D with the Plush 6A ESC and 2S lipo battery. Does anyone know if HK is reducing the voltage to the servos or will these servos work fine on 5V?
Hi, can someone confirm the wiring identification on this servo? Is the brown wire -, red wire and orange wire the signal one? I am soldering a connector to be able to use with another receiver. Thanks.
Thanks. Designing a 6 legged robot, 12 servos in legs, plus two for head. Sent the PCB in for fabrication today, while I wait for my servos(still back-ordered? Almost 3 weeks now). Now that I'm sure it's Molex, I can order the connectors for the PCB... :)
*Errol, all the best to your project. Watch the AUW (total weight) as these servos are tiny and possibly weak. Based on my experience the HK 282/A may be a better option if size is not that critical factor :-)
* Roy_T, thanks. I'm aiming for an all up weight of 50g, and a body size of 20mm wide by 60mm long by 20mm high. I'll evaluate these, and maybe switch to HK 282/A later, if I can spare the 2mm size increase... :-)
Well this is small! my scale says 1.85 gr including 10 cm wire and the jst 1.25 plug (walkera micro heli rx size) Work well, no jitter, center well also... looks like a great micro servo for a small 1s applications. I tried it on 5.2 volts (orange rx and esc 2s 6a turnigy) and it was getting warm after one minutes of quick left-right (warmer than with a single lipo cell)... as i did not wanted this servo to fried, i prefered to stop ;-) I do not think it can handle more than 4.2 volts.
BDW, it work perfectly with micro walkera RXs (even for rudder... no jittering). Just, do not forget to swithch wires (signal and negative) before use with Walkera rx ;-)
Hopefully price will decrease a bit with time.

nice nice nice
with one in each nosehole I can lift my moustache very easily
for info : the micro JST plug does not match with the ASSAN X8R4P (wiring sequence and pitch are different)

It is a nice very small servo, not an excellent one, but quite good for its price.
The interesting thing (for me at least) is that it runs when piloted at 400Hz by a microcontroler. I intend to use it on a tiny tricopter ...
5out of 5 worked for me. It is possible to trim the connector to fit an AR6400 but then you need to reverse the wires, i have done this for one but not really worth doing. I have some Micro JST's on their way. I just couldnt wait for them to get here.

Fantastic servo! I've don't expected so. Very fast, good centering, I use it in my micro tricopter as a tail servo.
