You should never set a failsafe to full brake, just set it to center and coast to a stop

As far as them warranting it Your the one that caused the failure not there product. So I don't believe they would unless you lied. Surely you wouldn't do that?
I did that Saturday at VRP!

I'm gonna send mine in, but I'm going to buy another servo anyways. Thanks god I had a couple of spares

Default Update

Hitec received my servos Wed morning of last week, they called me yesterday morning 8:30 their time to let me know that the HS-5645 MG will be covered under warranty and that the HS-5625 MG had a bad winding on the motor and it would cost $23.78 to repair it, told them to fix it and gave them my CC #. That's what I call good, fast service. I'll be up and running this weekend I asked the guy to throw in some stickers,said he would, Thanks Hitec
