Futaba Magnum Jr. has 1 EPA adjustment on steering (important to keep the steering centered!) as well as independent throttle and brake EPA on the other channel.




mremtr - I never considered the "derating" of the specs on a digital in an old system. I wonder how much I would loose? Some of the analog servos still have high torque but nothing can touch the speed of a fast digital. Am I going to loose speed as well as torque if I go digital?

How well do you guys think this would work in my buggy for throttle? Anyone run this brushless?

I think anything would work better than that for a throttle servo.

IMO Hitec. Either the 7955TG or the 5955TG

I've been using the same two servos (5995TG) for close too 3 years. (In Oct) 2.5 of those years were in a 8ight, known for being hard(er) on servos too. JR9100T are very good too, but I've had AWESOME performance with this Hitec model. Its by far the most popular servo in my area, and everyone swears by them too....

I don't doubt the recommendation but isn't speed important as well as torque for steering? .15sec/60deg@6V seems pretty slow to me.

My old HS-605BB is faster by specs and it needs to be twice as fast as far as I am concerned. I swear I can count the seconds go by as I check lock to lock steering on the bench to check my EPA adjustment! The standard issue wimpy Futaba that I use on throttle is lightning quick compared to this thing...

I'm glad I've got until next season to think about this one.

Average human reflex is .15-.18 seconds. Any servo around that speed will be just fine. Typically when I see servos that are very fast. (.08-.12 range) drivers have to adjust there Exponential because they are constantly chasing it (steering) The servo is faster then there ability to compensate its speed.


.15 second servo isn't slow. yes there are faster, but IMO .15 is about perfect

Personally I would'nt worry about it as it would be minute at best. Go with either the 7955 or 5955 try servocity .com they just had a killer blow out sale on the 5955's for like $69 each .

d'oh. Price says $114 and can't put one in the cart. I would have jumped on that if I could

KOpropo is the way to go, they are into servos made for cars, the others are generic.

Hitecs do not center well, I fly helis and the number of times I had to reprogram them is not funny.

Plus I burnt out 5955 hityecs twice on the buggy.....

Jr servos are very nice so are Futaba's but then again like I said Kopropo are the way to go.....
