Wouldn't know on big scale airplanes but I've been running these for steering on a 1/7 kyosho scorpion with the servo saver tightened and it has taken one year of punishment and bad landings with zero issues so far. It still performs like new.
Not really... On the output shaft is no rubber o-ring, which should be visible due to the slightly transparent plastic. I can directly see the ball bearing.
But the 3 junctions of the servo body have rubber rings.
I suggest that you put some grease on the output shaft to act as a shield and it will withstand watersplashes, but no submerging or high pressure washing.
I have 2 of these in my 2 and 4wd durango buggies running on 2s lipos without a glitch and they are outstanding for durability on the off-road. Torque is strong and speed is perfect for off road. They cost half to one third the price of big name brands at these specs and I wouldn't think twice before buying them again!
No, you can not use LiPo packs with these servos.
It says "Operating voltage: 4.8 - 6.0V", which means you can only use it with a 5-cell NiMH or a 2-cell LiFe pack. Both of those battery types have 6.6-6.7V at full charge, which is normal. With load the voltage gets lower, usally around 6V.
LiFe packs are more recommended than NiMH because of a more stable voltage and less charging time.
He referred to a "mbx6r nitro buggy"... where does it say it's electric and has a BEC?
It is just how I explained it... Please read the entire question before answering anything here, or the people asking just get confused and may damage their equipment.
Have a nice day.
I researched this a little bit and discovered you can use this servo IF you have a voltage regulator from the controller... The recommendation is for a 7.4v servo (to remain unregulated)... Hope this helps...
I am a serious racer and I have recently built a T4.2 and was looking for a cheap servo. Really wasnt expecting much for 20 bucks but was I wrong!!! This servo is amazing!!!! My first time out in pro class truck I got third thanks to this servo! Says .12 but acts like .09 hope this helped!

The servos work great for a while then they stop centering. Constantly adjusting servo center on transmitter.
