school me on servos

Post  dirty petcock on Fri Jul 23, 2010 12:52 pm

what would be a good steering servo to get? I have a old Futaba servo that is a POS. I would like to get some different opinions of what to get and why. Thanks -Jeremy

Are we talking for a road car? Hitec 645MGs and Traxxas 2075s are good... and definately powerful enough for a car... really anything thats above say 80oz/in and low in travel speed ratings will be more than fine...

I've had good luck with these, they're pretty powerful and quick, that was my unprofessional opinion. Others out here online may disagree. The price was right too.

I would have liked them to be waterproof from the factory but a little work of your own can make it that way.

Jer, you want what really is impossible in a servo to be used for the intense purposes of racing. Tough, strong, ball berrings,torque, Good potentiometers and centering servos that are fast start at around $ 35.00 and average at 50.00

There are areas we can cut corners and be cheap, but Personaly I found it was well worth the extra $ for a good servo (and a spare internal gearset with 2 or 3 extra servo horns or savers)

Futaba IMHO still makes the best servos.The hitec RHINO ones also are awesome, but are $$$$
