Thumbs up Choose servo betwen 9351 and BLS351

I want to choose a servo for my buggy, i'll use it for steering.
We don't talk about price, and wanna know which is smooth and better.

I have used the 9351 for quite some time and feel that it would be a good reliable choice.

Im not familar with the BLS351 though

The BLS351 is an improved servo compared to 9351. I used to use the 9351 now i use BLS351. Both have served me well.

I would go for the BLS 351 or the new BLS 352. I use only the Futaba BLS series servos in all my machines now these are great servos. Futaba also has good customer service if anything ever goes wrong.

BLS352 for both steering & brake in both MBX6 & 6T. efficient power wise, smooth like butter and as fast as I need.

Don't forget to look into a BLS452. A great buy @ 75$, normally $139

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXUZF0

SPECS: Torque: 156 oz-in (11.2 kg/cm) @ 4.8V
194 oz-in (14.0 kg/cm) @ 6.0V
Speed: 0.18 sec/60 @ 4.8V
0.14 sec/60 @ 6.0V

The Torque and Speed of the BLS351 is not much greater than a good Digital Brushed Servo, for all that extra dough what are you really getting?

I am wondering because I just ordered a DS1015 for steering and a DS1313 for throttle on my Losi 8IGHT 2.0. The DS1015 is nearly as strong and a little faster for $50 less.

Brushless servos are supposed to last longer... I couldn't tell one way or another.

I noticed that they're much smoother, and don't fail nearly as often..

the 9351 has a Nylon gear directly off the motor....which is a Weak point...the BLS351 has since changed that to a brass gear......personally i would go with the BLS version.

+1 for the bls452, i had the same dilema when deciding between the two. the mgr at my lhs has a 351 on unregulated lipo, and i ended up getting the 452 and dont use lipo. when i got it installed i took the car for him to check out and he thought my steering was faster. i would go with the 452, u just dont get that much for the extra dough in the 351 imho.

i have a bls451 on throttle, have since feb at silverstate, have not had a problem at all. The 351 I had on steering has seen a set of gears, but no electrical problems, straight lipo. Winners in my book.
