I am new to dlg. Is this Bixler good for beach flying in 10 to 20mi wind? What is a servo? What is this reverse servo? Does it bring the plane back to me? Thanks, Dan

servo is used to move ailerons elevator and rudder. with 10 to 20 mi wind per hour your bixler most likely well not come back to you for now.. try to read more before buying a plane...and practice flying with simulator first..

Correct observation probably, Crazycarmaniac, but in what way do you think your comment helps? :-) Dan, I have flown the Bixler 2 and AXN in strong winds, and there is really no problem with it as long as you are proficient with landing the plane against the wind. A servo is a small piece of electronics and mechanics that moves the control surfaces according to the stick movements on your transmitter, i.e. ailerons, rudder and elevator. A reverse servo is either one that you have modified to move in the opposite direction to the transmitter stick, or you have inserted a piece of electronics between receiver and servo to reverse the movement. You can mount electronic equipment on the plane that returns it to the launch position when control is lost, or when a switch is flipped on the transmitter, but this is quite advanced stuff. If you haven't flown anything before, listen to glenn_mech and get a simulator, it is such a god investment to avoid simpler mistakes when flying. Google for ilEBoTtGqhE on youtube for a tutorial on RC basics. HTH

I recemend getting the bixler 2 rtf as lassek suggested as its very stable and a good plane to start off eith it then can be later upgraded for live video ( fpv )

Do anyone know how to hack this servo to make it flip 360º*? =)
 glenn_mech 516 points
very poor quality...not good for any mods.

Well, some people modify the Htx900 or the Sg90 xD What CHEAP servo should I buy for my homemade cheap gimbal so?

STRIPPED GEARS .. PRODUCT ID: 9225000037-0 will fit as replacements I really like these servos! I use them on all my planes and 450 size heli. problem is that the output gears usually strip in a crash. I found that the TG9e ge****t will fit as replacements for this servo. The only gear I didn't try replacing was the motor pinion. There are more teeth on the TG9e output gear, so maybe they won't strip as easy? I haven't crashed with it yet so I don't know. just thought I'd pass this along :)

I didn't buy these directly but they were the servos for the rudder and elevator in my Bixler 2. One of these caused my Bixler to crash! I was doing onboard recording of some stunts, and I was in the middle of a spiral when my plane decided to stop spiraling which made me crash. Post-crash investigation, all servos working except the elevator servo which wouldn't maintain input (with elevator stick held back 100% on radio servos would glitch on and off input). Seeing as the other was for rudder which I almost never use, that's at least a 50% failure margin

The elevator servo is exposed when you land, because the elevator may get a ***p that damages the servo (happened to me, was lucky to detect it early in the air on next flight and could land OK). I have actually worn out one HK15178 too (have stabilizer on my Bix so constant servo movement). In that case the ele servo moved OK when moved away from neutral both directions, but it shook like crazy when close to the neutral point (probably worn out feedback pot). Now I always check the movement of the servos before take-off (which I didn't before these incidents, bad boy). Maybe it would be better with a metal gear servo for the elevator, these servos strip easily when you hit something. After all, they cost 2 bucks, I'm amazed they work at all... So check them thoroughly before flight and don't put them on an expensive model I guess. Cheers!

Is this good for flaps on Funcub 2,5 kg ?
 LasseK 1497 points
The HK15178 is slightly bigger than the Nano-S servos, so you might have to do some small adaptation work to make them fit. But in general they should work well. I use HK15178 on the flaps in my Bixler 2, has worked great for a long time. HTH

12 days from order to receipt and I paid the cheapest/slowest shipping, air mail non registered which was $2.99 shipping.

Received 4 of these and tested them all out.

You know what?
darn nice servos that come out to $2.64 each with shipping!

Each one was spot on 10g just as advertised.

The bag with the horns and screws weighed in at a wopping 2g and half of that was the bag.

Hooked them up to a little park futaba fasst receiver and ran these from a 5cell Nimh pack, so 6.6v for testing.

Ran the servo movement test and then the neutral test.

smooth, fast and centered perfectly well.
All four operate as smooth and quick.
Oh and each one responded to single clicks of trim.

The wire with the plug is 7 1/2 inches long and the wire seems to be very soft/flexible silicon.

If you are looking for inexpensive servo's for your foamy or small park flyer, I'd use these.

Next, I'll take one apart and have a look under the hood

Bought 5 pieces, despite this color as the glowing orange. to try. The price is excellent, although the color I disliked.

Just received my servos. I purchased 5 of them and the price including shipping was the same as purchasing 2 Hitec HS-55 feather servos. Comparing these with the HS-55 they weigh in about 2 grams more that the HS-55. The case feels tougher than the HS-55 and I think will be less likely to be crushed when screwed in. I like the orange color and will purchase more in the future. These are great servos for the flat foamies people are creating. I plan on building a flat foamy soon to give these servos a workout. These are also great for small park fliers. Expect more orders once I show these of to my friends at our RC Club. HobbyKing did great in bringing us these great servos.
