Good idea, but it wont stop people from asking the SAME questions (not searching) over and over in the thread.

WHAT ARE THE BEST AIRTRONICS SERVOS TO USE IN MY 8IGHT. I HAVE BEEN USEING HITEC AND KO PROPO, BUT NOT VERY HAPPY WITH THEM. I HEAR EVERYBODY SAY THAT AIRTRONICS SERVOS ARE THE BEST.

I'm using 2 Airtronics 94361s(rockcrusher servo).

The Ace servos are supposed to be really good servos, If you look a couple pages back you can see where everyone was talking about them. I put one in my dads cr-t as a steering servo(DS-1015). They are also stronger and faster than the Airtronics.

I have recently had some trouble with my airtronics servos, two that had nowhere near the power they should. I am going to send them in for repair/evaluation to Airtronics and try a couple of Futaba servos because of this problem.

I guess none are perfect, this is the first problem i've had with Airtronics, but a couple of local racers have noticed it as well in their servos.

I think the Trucks show up any issues easier then the buggies.

I went with Ace servos and wow, what a difference from Airtronics. I doubt I'll ever have another Airtronics in my 1/8 scale!

no the ace servos are smoother, have more torque and are faster than the airtronics.

I was practicing with my 8ight today. Ran out of fuel, refilled it, started it and my throttle wouldn't work. So, Theres another servo down, it was a Airtronics 94361z rockcrusher.

They are superior in speed, torque, smoothness, holding power and precision. Don't let the price fool you, they are definitely high quality servos.
