Default Got to Love Hitech

Last week, i sent in a hitech 5996tg that went bad. It was 7 months old, and just stopped working the weekend prior.

Today, i received my new servo, since the motor went bad on the other. Much to my surprise, i want sent a 5996tg, but a 7955tg. Hitech customer servo, went well above and beyond on this one.

Yup Hitec's customer service is second to none period. I love that they always send brand new servos, and usually update you to the current model.

Hitec's customer service is top notch. As for the servo exchange, if the model has been discontinued, you'll more than likely get what replaced it. For the 59xx series, it's been replaced by the 79xx series and that's why you got what you got. As for the 5945, I don't think that model was discontinued so I wouldn't get your hopes up. That's also what makes this companies servos so good. The service backs up it's products.

I once sent a HS-5945 and they just sent a brand new one. That's why I've always used Hitec servos.

MY LHS One-Hobbies does it for us! We give them our servo's they send em in, and a week or two later we pick up the new ones...Hitec definitely rocks..I think that is one of the main reasons why they are the #1 servo maker..That and the quality of the servo's of course..

Dang, I've been tryying to kill this 5955 I've had for years..... Its been in truggy conversions (ya thats how old it is), truggies, buggies back and forth.... the thing is a buffalo. I've seen people with locked servo savers in truggies break alum arms one after another and the servo is perfect, just as smooth as the day it was built....

I have a couple spares for the day when it kicks the bucket, but they might be rusted up by then

So I'm not sure how to burn it up.... I guess turn my EPA's up and hold it at full throw until it smokes

I broke the Aluminum servo arm on my 7955 a month ago. Then this 5996 went bad. I have to say a 9 day turn around was faster then i expected.

Servo horns need to be Beefed up imo....I use a thin strip of CF 2-3mm thick and bolt it together with the 1st hole...i have yet to bugger up a horn since. The Losi horns are also Uber tough.
