I've said it before and I'll say it again, "All of my servo problems ended the day I switched to Ace Digital servos over a year ago." They are as essential, IMO, as a personal transponder.

Ace servos...

We have some coming in. They have pretty good specs and it seems they are getting a wonderful response online. If anyone had something bad to say it would be there. They are loving them.

What kind of adaptor does it use for the servo arms?
Is it like a Fut, JR, Air....?

Need to know if we need to bring in another servo arm selection.
Thanks,
TEX

damo666, green/gold or even all green.

What are you guys doing to keep the front center CVD pin from coming loose. I keep catching it but it keeps coming loose.

Lol, Yep, I did it. Punish me. lol.

I used the CVD "Condoms" they sell on A-main I believe and havent had aproblem yet, I obviously threadlocked the set screw first before applying the condom. Or use heatshrink, but the condoms are much thicker because they are vinyl. -GMK Supply "CVD Condoms" [GMK0119]

Davidka- For the CVA setscrews, i took a narrow dremel tool and ground the flat spot that the setscrew sits in a bit deeper, My pin looks like this -_- now and the set screw sits really down into it. That and a dab of red with both parts degreased has fixed it for me, and this is on the Truggy which I would think has a higher load on it.

I would imagine that the front/center cvd gets pretty hot since it is at a constant, steep angle. Maybe my blue lock tite is softening from the heat.
