Welcome! Yes, usually Turnigy means high quality or at least functioning well. These are about as cheap as you can get. I opened up a broken one and everything (gears, shell, etc) is cheap thin brittle plastic. Very easy to strip too.
Hi guys, has anybody had any probs with these servos?? i brought some they worked when i was setting heli up but then boxed my heli and put away for acouple of months went and got it out the other night and they dont work no more, ive not even had one flight with them, just wondering if it has happened to anyone else. any feedback greatful
Hmm ... Don't know what went wrong, but during the flight I lost control over my wing and it nose dived into ground. Now I lost my plane worth 500$ because of these servos ... Well, I am not 100% if those were the servos, but I had perfect Radio link and video link, but no control what so ever. Even switching stabilization mode on my autopilot didn't help. So I believe gears stripped in a stall. Now I can't find my plane anymore, I guess it has gone for good ...
I had 1 out of 3 not work, and another break after gentle use. I suggest you don't buy these!
Looking good so far. I just got the first ones, running tests at the moment.
No slack, returns to 0 position exactly every time.
A couple of notes;
1) Servo wire is quite short, about 15 cm. But you have to extend them anyway if used as wing servo, no biggie.
2) Servo wire comes out from the bottom corner - and can be bent so that it is level either with the side of the servo or with the bottom of the servo frame - I think this is excellent = no more needed to cut a notch in the mount hole.
Nice packing in small cardboard box also.
I bought this servos only for bench testing. I burnt the first 5 digital servos I bought cause I didn t know that I have to use a digital-servo-compatible receiver. I used a Futaba 617 receiver powered from a 4-cell NiMh battery,but this receiver is not able to produce the higher pulse frequency digital servos need. So the first servos burnt immediately after switching on the system. Now I have tried another receiver switchable to digital puls frequency and the first servo I tried worked fine. For test purposes I switched the receiver back to analog servo and bang the next servo ( unfortunately an expensive one from Graupner ) burnt out after 5 seconds without any force going to it, just thervo on the desk. Now I will try this cheap servos with digital mode only. I never had a digital servo in a plane or heli until now, because on all the recent test they burnt out. Even if this servos now will work with my receiver it will take time, that I will get trust in digital servos. I still fly Helis with flybar because for FBL I would need digital servos and I dont trust them. I only use gyros for the tail of small helis that can output analog signal for analog tail servo. In the bigger helis 600 and up I even do not use any giro at all, because on big Helis it is not necessary to have giro on tail. It is stable enough with revo mix alone. So I will come bach with a new statement after testing this servos on the bench.
