I have to agree, the 358 servos have been my workhorses for quite some time.

the 359's are a better servo, and for the same price. the 358's have all plastic gears whereas the 359 have all metal except for the bottom one.

No...

94358's has all alluminum gears and one breakaway gear.

The Airtronics 94359 servo is basically the same as this servo but includes a heatsink.

I use the Air 358 for steering and a Futaba 3305 for throttle. Works awesome for me.

The link to the Airtronics servo spec page from Powerlink only confirms what Nik said...they are a mix of plastic and metal.

Here's some guts pix:



As you can see, there are some metal gears and a plastic gear at the bottom in the middle of the geartrain that acts as a sacrificial gear.
