The servo makes 4 x 360 turns not the usual 1 x 60 degree movement. It is designed to wind the sheets of a sailboat.
It is not suitable to use a a steering servo as it will not have any fine controll and will turn to far.
You can't beat this price. If it was 10gr lighter it will be fine for a pan servo on my skywalker. So I'll keep mine modificated servo
The servo I received was unfortunately dead - the electronics were DOA. Because warranty would cost me more than trying to fix it or ordering a new one, I decided to have a go at it.
Repaired it using a cheap std servo as donor.
Servo has plastic gears and a gearbox so as to use a standard pot as feedback, so don't expect chirugical precision on this servo - but then again: what do you expect from such a cheap servo?
Bottom line: If you need a really cheap winch servo for a smaller boat or a non-critical application on a bigger yacht and you are willing to take the risk of a DOA, this winch servo will do just fine for you.
Really nice. The winch fits perfectly, unlike the earlier models, and the motion is really smooth. The torque is pretty good and the last 180 degrees of the revolutions slows down to reflect scale action.
