Default New JR High Voltage servos

Man have the prices of JR servos increased! How bout the new HV servos that don't need a reg when running lipos? Anyone gonna drop $199.99 on one of these? Shew!

I run the 9100t and 9000s i paid 95 for the s and 115 for the t like 8 months ago now there like $150

I bought both my 9100Ts at my LHS for 110.00 each and they still sell them for that price. I don't see why anyone would need the new HV series though. Seems like overkill to me as the 9100 has more than enough power for any any of my rigs.

New technology comes at a cost. currently i think its only hitec that also make 7.4v rated servo's and I wouldn't want them in my buggy.....

Futaba's run out at similar money I believe to hte JR's but there not 7.4v rated or have spec's anywhere near as good as the new JR's same with airtronics.

Will I be purchasing them @ $199, hell no ............. But if the price comes down some in the coming months they'll be a VERY tempting option

I've looked at the new HV line of servos for my 1/5th scale but why anyone would need that much power in a buggy or truggy I have no idea.

they will be the last servo you ever need. The motors will last longer, and the cases are aluminum and the ears wont break.

I'm guessing most of us Buggy racers would be using them simply cause we would no longer need a regulater for our lipo battery's

These servos look really nice, but man they are just going way overboard on pricing. Imagine two servos costing more than a D8 buggy, or costing 2/3 the price of a current $600 buggy!

Default Hitec Servos

The Hitec TG series servos have been great. I had a 5997TG in my buggy for about 2 years before the motor burned on it. I sent it back to Hitec with receipt and they sent me the newer version of the servo. I used there old servos way back in the day and they would break after 2 runs so I do agree the old ones where crap so please don't start that old conversation.

what good are HV servos if you still have to regulate the RX to 6 volts?

If you run Spektrum, you don't have to worry about that. All Spektrum RX's operate up to 9v or 9.6v input. So, new JR 9100HVT and 9100HVS servo's + Spektrum RX = no mo regulator on your Lipo.

I have a ?. would you be talking about the company spectrum or all 2.4Gh recivers that can run on 7.4v. I have the airtronics 2.4 receiver and I asked this before an was told I couldn't. But with the way technology is going and I'm not going stop racing no time soon, do I need a new reciver or is mine good.

I have no clue on the Airtronics 2.4ghz stuff, all the Spektrum surface RX's are listed here. When you click on the pic to select a particular receiver, the next page has a "Tech & Spec" tab, which lists the dimensions, weight, and voltage range, for example the SR3300T Tech & Spec info listed here.

I think those specs enable the spektrum RX to work with high voltage, however, I think without a regulator they would still damage low voltage servos. That is an important distinction to make so someone unfamiliar with circuit design will not make the mistake of connecting a regular servo to their system with a HV source.
