Default Servo Horns Fitting Info

Do mostly all servo horns have a universal fit in regards to fitting the gears on the servo or do you have to buy the brand name of what your servos are?

Is there any difference in a servo horn and a servo arm?

Will these fit my losi 8 buggy?

Those horns you have selected from Amainhobbies are for Hitec servos. So if you have Hitec servos then your good to go. Otherwise they will not work. Amainhobbies will tell you what brand of servos the horns will work for in the title description. For example if you have Futaba servos you need to find the Dynamite servo horn that will fit on Futaba servos, and so forth.

You have to match the servo horn with the number on splines on the servo. Aftermarket servo horns usually say what they are for, both of the ones you got are for hi-tec
