Default Truggy Servo

Has anyone tried a futaba BLS152 Super High-Torque Air Servo for the steering servo in a truggy. It's got great specs just wondered if there was a reason it couldn't be used in truggy?

I'd use the BLS352 or the 9157. They will be a lot better suited to truggy.

According to the specs it's like 2 tenths of an ounce heavier than the others.

Do you want to expand on your statement like explaining why.

why do we have the hitec bandwagon on a futaba question? good god stay in your own thread for once!

now to the original question.

I have been running only futaba servos for the past 2 years with zero prbs. I currently run the bls351 and the 9351 and love them!

I do not know why they say to run that servo in airplanes.

here is a video I found with google of a bls152 in a crawler..

but for the money go with the bls351 you will love it...

I have been running the Futaba 9157 since it came out in my 8ight T 2.0 The servo is a absolute beast that would probably turn the steering in my real car (Honda CRX).

WOW.

The thread I opened said "truggy servo".

You guys need to remember that there are children reading this stuff.

That kind of language is totally un-called for.

I do apoligize for droping the f-bomb but good god why does every thread on here have to go off topic...it gets old going into a thread on futaba and seeing hitec is the best or the mugen thead saying losi is awsome....I understand the younger crowd gets on here but what 12 yr does not drop a f-bomb....
