7955tg's are lipo safe. per hitec rep. they will warranty it. if it ever goes bad by using straight 2s lipo.

that's why it's such a sweet deal. 300+ oz of torque in both 6v and 7.2v. fast enough for throttle and steering., you can get it under 100 bucks at most places.

it's a win win for that servo. The new hitec HV servo's cost vs performance is not as good IMO. unless you absolutely need that kind of speed or torque.

The DS620 is only 10 kg.cm at 6V. I use this one for throttle.

I am not a plane guy at all but working in a LHS where the Owner is a plane guy, I have "heard" that planes are easier on servos. I cant prove that. They say planes are smoother on servos that offroad. The servos take a pounding but hitting big jumps and have to hold though the turn. they have to take the abuse of slamming into the pipe, yes there is a servo saver, but the initial shock goes directly to the servo........

And three 7955 for one rudder ? ? ? that is a BIG a$$ plane.

Yes they Hitec 7955 is lipo safe ( and just think a month ago I argued that) and the Hitec HV servos are 50 cheaper than JRs

I have a 3 race used JR HVT that I am unloading for cheap if you are interested PM me. Otherwise I would say the 7965 worked very well for me, but its not lipo safe or any of the hitec servos. how fast do you need it??

I've been researching the crap out of servos for the last week or so. I just ordered a truggy and need a strong, fast, steering servo. I wanted to go as cheap as possible, but also wanted something reliable that would get the job done. In the end, there was no beating the 7955. Too many good reports for users, specs are good, and the price is only a few dollars more than much weaker servos. It was a no brainer for me.

Glad you saw the light at the end of the tunnel buddy....Enjoy year's of abuse on those servo's.

I'm not sure why more people don't know about the Hobbico CS-170 and CS-160 servos.





CS-170 has Titanium Gears. 333oz @ .15 sec. $89.99 Same specs as the Hitec 7955 but $30.00 less. They come out of the same factory in the Philippines as the Hitec's. They may even be the same servo people!

CS-160 131oz @.14 sec. $49.99 Same specs as the Hitec 5625 but $5.00 less.

I use the CS-170 for steering in my MBX6 and MBX6T and the CS-160 for throttle/brake on both. I've had the same CS-170 in 3 different truggies without a hickup! They don't say Hitec on them but let's be real here folks! Hobbico does stand by their products. I had a CS-160 burn out on me (under the 1 year warrantee) and they sent me a brand new one no questions asked. There's brand loyalty but then there's common sense as well. Why pay for the name on the servo?
