Yes they are My brother bought 4 358 servoes all 4 went back to get fixed I bought 4 Ace servoes still work Great But I think you can get a bad servo from any manufacturer. It's not just Airtronics. But, I personally think Ace are better. (In my own opinion)

Airtronics makes great servos, so does JR, futaba, Hitec, and Ace (I hear),... but has anyone found out why they are ALL going bad in the 8ight? If a 361 goes bad, its not from the strain of braking......

Well I don't think hitec is the servo to have everyone that has them around me have all gone bad and two more went out on me to today, and my Airtronics 360 in my losi went today. A guy at the track told me to try the cut down return spring.

If anyone is considering going with Ace, keep in mind that they do draw more amps from the RX pack. For long mains, make sure you have a healthy and fully charged RX pack.
