no I did not notice any problem not centering correctly, but then again I haven't had the buggy that long, if you're having issues with it send it in, I'm sure they won't let you down. I just bought their HPP-21 digital servo programmer from A Main, it'll give me a little peace of mind to set them up correctly and it's fairly cheap. http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...rvo-Programmer
I'm sure it's not a total waste of money, has anybody used this programmer before? did you find it usefull? any input will be appreciated.

I Love how you base Hitecs rep on the 5645 that you keep repeating has centering issues....HOW many time's have you been told to just cough up the 100$ get a 7955 and be done with it ? Seriously.....not trying to be a jerk here....but the 645/5645's are Nothing like their Ti geared brother's.

rotarynut, Kinda shocked they charged you for the motor winding.......but i can tell your happy with the service....Hitec is Top Notch when it come's to warranty....No receipt No problem.

I dropped the cash on the fancy JR high volt series, raced them 3 times, had one go out and then pulled them that night and sold them the next week. Now I have hitec 7950's & 7940's installed in my buggy and truggy and well see how they hold up. Over the last 2 years I have used JR 9100 series and hitec 79XX series. I have had more JR servos dump on me than I can count prob close to 7 or 8 and in that time only one 7965 go out. Both JR and hitec replaced the servos every time but I just dont want any more DNF's due to servo failure. I have to say I have had better experience with the hitec servos than JR but that didnt stop me from trying their HV series. Hitec servos are great servos second to none.

a bad winding on the servo motor sounds like a mfr. defect and should have been fixed under warranty...



FUTABA FTW now what

Integra , the way I figured, I'd been $100 (minimum) in the hole if I would have had to buy 2 new servos, 24 bucks is not bad at all, a fairly inexpensive lesson to learn. The servo programmer is on the way,have you used one before? seem's that it would be a "for shure" way to set up your servos EPA's, fail safe and overload protection(for the high end servos) and it's not that expensive. check out all it can do

Does your radio not have endpoint adjustments on it? I dont understand what the servo programer does that a med-high end radio cant do.

yes my radio has EPAs but thats about it, I think the programmer might give you more precise adjustments, and it does other stuff your radio can't do. I come from the auto tech industry, I have used "generic" scanners per say,they are very limited as to what they can do compared to a "manufacturer " specific scanner, they are way superior. I guess it comes down to how precise and versatile you want to be. I looks like the program allows you to "save" your setting and therefore perhaps save a setting for a particular track, this would eliminate any guess work.
