Default hitec 5985MG or 7955TG for throtle??

My other servo went in the crapper so i need a new servo for my throtle. The 5985 has 180oz of torque at a speed of .13. the 7955 has 333oz at .15.

I love the 7955 on my steering, but feel like my throtle could use a bit more speed. I know it's not much ( .02 seconds) it's also like 20 or 30 bucks cheeper.

basically is the 5985 a good servo?


Or the Hitec HS-7975HB ? it has 144oz or torque at .11 speed. I just worry that the torque might not be enough for the brakes. Is it?

or the 5965? 134oz @ 1.0?

i run the 7955 on both , i think its fast enough for the throttle.

a little insurance, if the steering goes out i will have an extra, i can allways find something for the throttle.

I started buying the hi torque Hitecs exclusivly for the simple reason of uniformity.If a T/B servo dies for some odd reason you can always use the 7955 in its place but if the 7955 dies I would not be comfortable beating the crap out of a lower torque servo for steering. It just seems to make life easier & since I play with my toy cars on the weekend to relieve stress from the week I think the little extra $ for the hi torque is worth it. Not that I have been able to kill even a 5955 servo yet but...

In the past I have used(still do in some cars) other brand top end servos that die & am stuck digging through the spares box choosing the less of all evils.I personally cant feel the difference in .15 & .12, .06 is a different story but usually turn down my EXPO for those servos anyway.

IMO 7965MG for t/b servo.

So far it has handled plenty of hours on 2S Lipo unregulated and its one of the fastest if not the fastest (non-hv) servo in the Hitech line.

I believe its .08 the HV's speed servo will be .06.

It's a great servo and has plenty of power and is smooth as hell. I love it just wish it was made in a TG setup, but o well the High Voltage series is releasing from Hitech finally this month.

Price tag starting at 159.99..

7955 for both, get 3 of them and you will be able to continue running if one lets the smoke out.Then you can put in a fresh one that still has the smoke inside while you send the bad one back for free replacement.Like Butchman said UNIFORMITY.

+1 on the 7965 for t/b. I use one in my truggy and it woks perfectly on a 1600 nimh pack. FYI hitec states that the only servos rated for lipo are the 7955, 7940 & 7950. All other 79XX servos are not rated for lipo. Sooner or later that 7965 os going to fail on unregulated lipo.
