Good servo's but still breaks gears easy on impact!! used them on a trex450 sport 6s scorpion esc and scorpion motor and worked very well,speed and feel I couldn't fault!!but broke two out of thee servo gears on first impact so bit the bullet and bought mks DS92 :)
would this servo work for a 12th scale touring car/gt12 like schumacher supastox or mardave circuit edition ? wasn't sure if the 3.7kg of torque would be enough? The cars weigh in at around 1kg they do 30-40 mph, they are tight for space so any room saved plus weight is a big bonus .
i just bought 3 of these . i will install on a 450 pro for cyclic with a jr 3500 tail servo . i have a 40 amp esc with a 3amp linear bec . is the bec sufficent to handle the load ? later i might add a fbl gyro
''Castle Creations'' CC BEC is an excellent BEC for a 450 using HV servos. If you get the CC USB Programmer you can set your BEC to the exact volts you want, up to 9v. Just be carefull with the JR 3500 because you cannot run high volts through it. You can also get a tail servo voltage step down adapter if you want, so you can run your cyclic servos at a higher voltage than your tail servo and get a bit more performance out of them.
well just got a chance to try out the servos . only had time to hover in the back yard . but wow ,they are smooth ! i had some mg 90s servos and they would seem to have to warm up on the first battery and pale by comparison to these in performance
I have just finished fitting these to my Warp 360. All of the cyclics and the tail servo are TGY-306G HV. Will be running them at 7.4v with the MSH Brain FBL unit. I can't wait to try it out this weekend.
Do you mean ESC or external BEC. If you want an external BEC I use ''castle creations'' CC-BEC. You need to get the usb programmer though, then you can set it from 4.8v up to 9.0v and it will give you plenty of amps.
I don't think can be used on 500 class heli, due this servo let say similar with Hitec HS-65 dimension suit to 450 class. As I know 500 class only suit using HS-81 casing size. The other hand, about the Speed and Torque for sure can power your 500 class heli indeed.
Go to the support tab. You will find a section on warranty. Hobby King is very good at warrenty items. It looks like they are a real good servo with the exception of a few. Look at the reviews, and you will see what I mean.
The servos is very strong and fast. Works well on trex 450 XL.
My question is: They are buzzing all the time even if I'm not connecting servo links. Is it normal? Or maybe my ones are factory defective?!
Other ways they works fine.
hi franz! this is really best servo for 450 size heli, just check fitting dimensions if its fits on your heli
I love this servo! I just received mine in the mail yesterday and immediately put it through my series of tests that I do to all new servos. I ran it on my servo tester at 6.65 volts. Here is what I have found about this servo.
- Consistently cycled 60 degrees at 0.066 seconds. - Consistently centered with no visible "bounce." - There is zero slop in the gear train of this servo. - The servo is very quiet and does not chatter. - It is somewhat heavy for its class of servo but not too much to make it unusable. - I ran highspeed no-load cycles at full speed for 10 minutes. The servo worked perfectly and the case was reasonably warm to the touch. - The quality of craftsmanship is excellent. - The servo wire is very flexible and plenty long when compared with other servos in the same class. - My only dislike would be with the servo arms. I would guess that the splines in the arms would strip during an impact rendering the arms useless. That is probably a good thing, though, as the arm is a good place to serve as the "weak link" that absorbs any stress rather than the geartrain and case.
* I would highly recommend this servo for high speed/performance planes AND jets or for the cyclic and tail controls of a 450 class heli. This servo is simply amazing! I will surely be buying more of these!

Warning ! You should open the servo casing. Because there could be a short circuit. The complete casing is made of aluminium. And the soldering joints of the motor and servo lead on the PCB are too long and might touch the casing. Trim these and you are fine. Otherwise the servo can be damaged. Otherwise, it is fine. Fast, quick, accurate. And built by idiots....

Bought 2 of these, they are very fast
#1 - 0.051sec
#2 - 0.049sec
No jitter on #1, jitter disappeared after testing a bit on #2, no deadband, after 10 mins of cycling they were warm but quieter.
Disassembled and ground down the connection leads (aluminum case and ugly solder is a bad combo)
Going into a large flying wing, the small size will be nice for a thin airfoil.
I'll likely buy more in the future.
So far pretty good servo, using it in Hobbyking Slick. Planning to use it all around in Rex 450PRO.

these servos are purely awesome, fast, strong, easy to the eyes and had a crash this weekend and they didn't get any damages, I recommend them, they make extremely good servos for the swatch mix and they could easily be used for the tail as well
will buy some more for sure
