Default What hitec servo combo to get? 5955TG and?

Hi all

I tried a lot of searching but could not find any answer for this question..

I am going to order a 5955TG for steering in my MBX5R and wanted to get a digital servo for the trottle/brake as well.

Should i get another 5955TG for the throttle or maybe get a slightly faster servo?

If i got 2 and ever had any problems i could use the throttle servo in my steering and use one of my spares in the throttle which is an advantage.

Maybe a 5996TG which is 105/138oz and .13/.10 compared to
5995TG 249/333oz and .19/.15.

do I need more speed in the throttle then the 5955 get offer?

thankyou

It is not unheard of to hae the 5955 for both, but I belive it alittle overkill. I use the Hobbico CS-170 which is the 5955 and use a much faster and less powerful throttle. The throttle servo I have is rated at 111 oz of torque and .8 transit time.

braking takes alot of torque ! min. rule of thumb for me is a minimum of 180in./oz. of torque , speed of .19 or better is plenty fast for throttle
happy motoring ,

Good decision. I have been running the same 2 servos for almost a year now, and I race 2 to 3 weekends each month.

the 5955 is a beast of a servo, I love mine, but for throttle I would go with the 5996 or 5997, Im running the 5955 for steering and the 5996 in my 8b and yet to have a failure

Run two 5955's. The 5955 has a better motor and circuit board (from the 5995 robot servo) so it is more durable than the 5996, 5997 and 5998 servos. If you really need more speed, then get the gear set for the 5997 and stick it in the 5955

Personally, I just run two 5955's in my MBX5R and use a 7.0 volt regulator on a LiPo battery. The 5955 on 7.0 volts is faster than any servo on the market at 6.0 volts and makes over 400 oz's of torque

Best regards,

I have used the above with a Futaba Fast and Spectrum receivers with absolutely no problems!!! In my opinion the throttle servos takes more abuse than the steering servo!! It is constantly working and has to stop these heavy cars. The steering servo works less because it's just like a car without power steering. Once you get goin it steers pretty easily. Just my 2 cents.

Thumbs up

I have had GREAT luck with my combo, 5955 steering and 5965 throttle/brake... It works very well!

Sorry, I should have posted what radio system I use. Currently I am running the Nomadio 2.4Ghz React. The Transceivers can handle higher voltages. Before the Nomadio I ran the Airtronics M8 with 2.4 Ghz Spektrum System. The spektrum receivers can also run higher voltages (up to 9.6 volts) so there is no issue.

As for standard receivers such as the Airtronics, Futaba, JR, etc. they only recommend 6.0 volts. So I can't say if they will work on higher voltages.

>>>>>>> BUT keep this in mind. When I used to run a 5-cell 6.0v 2/3A standard hump pack back in the day, they put out much more than 6.0 volts fully charged as well. If I recall, the last time I charged a 5-cell 2/3A hump pack or a 5-cell AA pack the voltage was somewhere around 7.68 volts. So if you limit the LiPo with a 6.5v or 7.0v regulator I'm sure it would work fine with any receiver Disclaimer: I am only making an educated guess so if you decide to do this, it is at your own risk. ....LOL

I'm sure others that run the standard receivers (not Spektrum or Nomadio) will chime in.

Best regards,

Thanks Tony,

I'm running a Losi 6V regulator. I do hope some guys that run over six volts with standard recievers share their experiences though.

I use two Hitec 5955TG servos with a 7 volt regulator from HT Batteries in my TR Arena truggy. The servos are fast and hold strong with the 7 volt regulator.

The best price I have found for the Hitec servos were at Donalds Hobby. You can get the Hitec 5955TG here:
