Default Review of HobbyPartz Servo's

Has anybody tried the EXI-Servo-D226F and EXI-Servo-D227F in a 1/10 scale?
If so, is it a good deal or something to stay avoid????
thanks

I haven't tried the EXI servos yet but I've been running a few of the T-Pro MG946R (~166oz/in) in everything from 1/10 to 1/8 and for $12 they've been pretty good. I was looking for something that was more or less "temporary" when I bought them because I wasn't sure if I was going to really get into to 1/8 electric buggy and I didn't want to spend $160 for two servos and end up sticking the buggy on the shelf. To make a long story short, I'm still running the same servos after two months into the outdoor season and they're still holding up strong.

I have had 3 of the EXI servo's (226 and 227) when using them in a 2wd they have been fine and work well.
Using of them in 4wd SC trucks I have had this happen (see the link)

http://www.ultimaterc.com/forums/sho....php?p=1022070

I would not recommend them overall myself seeing I have had two die in one month. Spend $40 instead and get a Savox.

Or the Blue Birds from hobby king have been good to me.

I have the higher torque exi one in my hpi mt2 (a heavy stadium truck) its a little bit slower than my 80 buck savox but its still running strong. I would recommend it as a backup or for bashing around... even if it breaks just replace the thing since its only 15 bucks....

I use the 227 in my sc10, it rules. I used the 226 previously in a basher stampede, also ruled. They are good to go.

I use the EXI-Servo-D227F in my B4 and one in my son's SC10 and they work great. May not work as well in a $x$ though.

if your going to do it do it right dont waste your time or money on an inferior product you know will fail your better off buying a low end servo from a name brand company if you buy a 15 dollar servo and it craps out on you in the end you would have been better off spending the extra 15 on a 30$ servo or finding a nice used one in the for sale section because the more you spend on cheap servos will be less time and money you will have in the near future when that servo dies and you have to replace it 3 or more times and typically a mane brand servo will have a manufacturer warranty so if it dies than you can get a new one for the cost of shipping.

These "inferior" servos are quite durable and no more or less likely to fail than those costing 3x the price.

Have been running 226F in my T4 and my 4X4 Buggy for about 8 months without any issues, I love them.
