I finally built my Gen X 10 last weekend and just need to pick up a servo to complete it. What's a good low profile servo for this car ? I have to say the car is without doubt the nicest quality kit I've ever built in terms of materials, fit, and finish.

I also use the KO 951 KDS servo in my LE and XL; but, the JR3650 is excellent and usually costs $15-20 less.

I went with the KO servo because I use their Eurus radio too. There are a few minor options available by having them fully compatible.

Weight(g): 29.6
Speed(@4.8V sec/60): .16

With the Helios/Eurus radios and the programming module you can program some characteristics into the KO PDS servos.

Thanks guys, I should have mentioned I needed digital servo. That said I ordered a Hitec HS 7775MG, it's a lot more shallow than a standard servo so it will clear the battery tray and battery no problem. More than enough power for 1/10 and plenty fast too.

No, the 4247 does not have the attachment points for the rear cross brace.

One of the issues with servos is getting one that has its output shaft in the correct position so you can center it in the Gen-X 10 chassis.

I do not believe the Hitecd 7775MG Low Profile servo does this using the supplied CRC parts. Have seen a couple people glue low profile servos flat to the Gen-X 10 chassis to make them work.

yea standard servo is to wide,tried that on mine but would not fit.
only mini i could find locally was the savox 1250mg (digital),i have 3 other savox servos and had a good run with them and happy with the 1250s performance
unfortunately KO and jr are hard to come by here and real expensive

Default Servo comparisons

From A-Main Hobbies website...They carry all four micro servos...

KO-Propo PDS-951 ICS Digital Micro Servo
Torque: 108.3 oz at 6V (most by far)
Speed: 0.09 sec @ 60 degrees
Bearing: Dual (best)
Gears: Metal
Weight: 27 grams (lightest)
Size: 1.42 x 1.21 x 0.59 inches
Cost: $118.99 (highest)

JR Z3650 Digital High Speed Micro Servo
Torque: 51 oz at 6V (least)
Speed: 0.09 sec @ 60 degrees
Bearing: Single
Gears: Metal
Weight: 29 grams (heavier)
Size: 1.30 x 1.02 x 0.58 inches (smallest)
Cost: $89.99 (middle)

Savox SH-1250MG Super Torque Digital Micro Servo
Torque: 63 oz at 6V
Speed: 0.11 sec @ 60 degrees (slowest)
Bearing: Two ball bearings
Gears: Metal
Weight: 29.6 grams (heavier)
Size: 1.38 x 1.15 x 0.59 inches
Cost: $62.99 (lowest)

Savox SH-1257MG Super Speed Digital Micro Servo
Torque: 34.7 oz at 6V (insufficient)
Speed: 0.07 sec @ 60 degrees (fastest; but, has insufficient torque)
Bearing: Two ball bearings
Gears: Metal
Weight: 29.5 grams (heavier)
Size: 1.38 x 1.15 x 0.59 inches
Cost: $62.99 (lowest)

To my thinking, the KO has the best overall specs; but, it comes at a price. JR 3650 sits in the middle. Savox's 1250MG is the bargain entry to the fray. And Savox's 1257MG is possibly suitable for 1/12th scale.

Default Servo Saver

Oh, one other issue...I always use a Kimbrough Mid-sized Servo Saver #200 on my WGT cars. Has a stronger spring than their 1/12th servo savers.

And I utilize the two holes closest to the servo's output shaft for more steering accuracy. I cut off the unused holes for more clearance and better appearance.

Interesting that Kimbrough does not make a 21 spline servo saver in its mid-sized units. So, the only servo saver that works with Savox servos is the small Kimbrough unit.
